Maheshwar in MP, on the banks of Narmada River, is only 90 km from Indore. A temple town with exquisite examples of architecture, Maheshwar is also well known for its saris and other handloom products. The best way to reach Maheshwar is to reach Indore either by rail or by air since Maheshwar has neither a railhead nor an airport. Indore, on the other hand is not too far away from Maheshwar and one can travel by a taxi from the airport or railway station at Indore to Maheshwar.
The roads to Maheshwar are good. According to drivers on these roads you could drive at average speeds of between 50 and 60km/hour if in your own car or a taxi.

Maheshwar is a very small place and one can walk around the town. Auto rickshaws are available and so are contract buses such as Saraf. But, travellers say that it is “fun to walk around” and check out the local stuff, eat at food joints and generally feel the pulse of the local environment.
