Goddesses' Abode Maihar

After climbing 1063 steps, you will see the beautiful Maa Sharda Devi Temple, sitting atop the Trikoota hill in Maihar. Even today it is believed that the spirit of the legendary warrior Alha visits everyday to offer prayers at the temple. While the temple attracts thousands of devotees year on year, the town is also considered as one of the 51 Shakti Peeths of Goddess Parvati.

What adds to this divinity is how Maihar got its name. The name means 'Necklace of Mother'. It is believed that when Lord Shiva was carrying Sati, her necklace fell down here. Along with its treasure of holiness, Maihar also holds the honour of producing some of the best Indian Classical musicians.

With this wide a range of offerings, Maihar will leave you amazed, like you used to be as a child.
