History of Indore

The city of Indore, located on the plateau of Malwa, is a commercial centre and Madhya Pradesh's largest city. Indore is said to have derived its name from the temples of Indreshwar and Indrapur. The founder of Indore, was Rao Nandlal Chaudhary. Indore changed hands several times from the Rajputs to the Mughals, and the Marathas, until they lost it to the British.

Things To Do in Indore

Indore has a beautiful natural landscape coupled with man-made historical monuments, especially those dating to the Holkar Dynasty. A landmark of Indore is the 200-year-old palace, Rajwada, built in a mix of French, Mughal and Maratha architecture. This monument built during the Holkar Dynasty, is a seven storey building with the three lower levels constructed in stone and the remaining floors in wood. Nearby, is a Jain Temple, the Kanch Mandir meaning the temple of mirrors.

Visit the museums - The Indore Museum, and the Border Security Arms Museum, at Bijasen Tekri, atop a hill, and while you are at it get your blessings from the Goddess Bijasen at the temple built in 1920. Shree Sansthan Bada Rawala, is the original home of the founder of Indore, housing a large library with as many as 28,000 books and artifacts.

"Cleanest city in India" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
1. Why to visit?
It is the most cleanest city in India. Located in the Malwa Plateau. Also known as the street food capital of India, famous for its lip smacking taste of street food. A city very much rich in heritage and culture, a must visit place.
2. Must Visit Places.
Rajwada palace, Yeshwant club and local gardens. Mhow located around 25 km from Indore has beautiful places to visit like Patalpani, Wanchu point and Malwa Plateau. Local temples are also worth visiting for attaining peace of mind.
3. Local food and shopping.
TI and C21 mall has some nice options in the food courts. The local Sarafa and 56 markets are worth visiting. The night life is also good with some good chain of clubs/pubs like 10 DS, of bar and many more. For shopping the locally made sarees are also good. Other options are also there for branded clothing.
4. Activities.
The city provides good options for experiencing about the Holkar and touch of Maratha dynasties. A water park in the city also provides good viable options to beat the scorching heat. A drive down towards Mhow and visiting Patalpani and Wanchu point is also recommended.
5. Advice.
Do keep eyes on the road while driving down. Take camera along while going towards Mhow. Rest all is okay.
Happy Holidaying !!
Warm Regards

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 28, 2017
It was a business cum holiday trip. This was my sixth trip to Indore (business purpose), second with my wife.

Not much of sight seeing but good food at almost all the restaurants visited, Apna Sweets, and mouth watering sweets at SARAFA. A worth experience of chaat and sweets, Nafees, Khanabadosh, etc.

Ladies Dresses and Dress Materials as well as Maheshwari Sarees are cheap in Indore but you have go in main city inside the narrow lanes to find the cheapest and best material near Rajwada.

Indore is a city in west-central India. It's known for the 7-story Rajwada Palace and the Lalo Baag Palace, which date back to Indore's 19th-century Holkar dynasty. The Holkar rulers are honored by a cluster of tombs and cenotaphs at Chhatri Baag. The night market Sarafa Bazar sells street food. East is the Indo-Gothic Gandhi Hall and clock tower. The Jain temple Kanch Mandir has a mirrored mosaic interior.

I had been to Indore by train in the month of September 2016. Indore is a must-visit attraction in the tourism circuit of Madhya Pradesh. The must-visit attractions around Indore include the Patalpani Waterfalls, Central Museum and the Pipliyapala National Park. The Patalpani waterfalls is located 36 kilometers from Indore. Here, water falls from a cascading height of 300 feet. The Central Museum is also known as the Indore Museum. It has a rich range of collections dating back to 5000 BC and it has the Ganapati Statue which is located at a height of 8 meters, which is the biggest Ganapati statue in the world. Pipliyapala National Park is home to a variety of interesting facilities such as Mughal, French and biodiversity gardens and a musical fountain. There is also an added facility of an amphitheatre and boating facilities available here.
