Indore Local Information:
The credit of establishing Indore goes to the reputed Holkar Queen, Rani Ahilya Bai who planned the city. It was a main trading centre as it was a convenient place on the main pilgrimage route from Mahakaal to Omkareshwar. Some of the structures reminiscent of the royalty of the bygone era include the Lalbaug Palace and the Rajwada. The Lalbaug Palace is home to the descendants of the Holkar dynasty. Rajwada is another palace from the Holkars that is still a marvel. The Kaanch Mandir or Palace of Mirrors, close to the Rajwada is another place worth visiting. More of a religious place, Indore is full of sites which hold religious importance. A little away from the main city is the sacred island of Omkareshwar, located on the confluence of Narmada and Kaveri. Believed to be one of the 12 Jyotirlingas in the country, it attracts many devotees. The site for the famous Kumbh Mela, Ujjain is another noted religious place nearby. Bada Ganapati is a famous temple in Indore which houses the largest Ganapati idol in the world.
