The "Food City of India" offers a little something to everyone. Indore's exciting history, fast developing pace and scenic beauty makes it an important city in Central India.
Set on the Malwa Plateau, Indore is the land of the ancient Holkar dynasty. Home to a plethora of historical monuments and the famous Indreshwar Temple on the confluence of two streams, it is a bustling tourist destination.  Indore gets its name from the Sanskrt word "Indur". Raja Indra Singh had set camp along the banks of the River Kanh and established a Shivling, which then came to be known as the Indreshewar Temple. When the power shifted to the Marathas under Bajirao Peshwa I, the city's name had evolved to Indur. It finally came to be known as Indore under the British rule. Well known for the Chanderi and Maheshwari silks, Indore is a delight for serious shopping enthusiasts. While in Indore, pick up MP’s renowned Maheshwari and Chanderi sarees. 

The commercial hub of MP now routinely features in magazines as one of the ‘fastest growing cities of India’ and is the only Indian city to have both an IIT and an IIM. It is also your hub for visiting lovely spots like Mandu and Omkareshwar. Indore became prominent in 18 CE with the rise of the Holkar dynasty under Malhar Rao Holkar and his daughter-in-law Ahilya Bai, a celebrated temple builder. The Holkars’ Rajwada Palace lies in the heart of Indore but was destroyed in a fire in 1984. Just the façade is extant. Nearby, on the banks of the river Khan, are the Holkar cenotaphs. The Lal Baag Palace, a European-style palace from 1920, is now the Nehru Museum and has a collection of artefacts, paintings and antique coins. The Kanch Mandir or ‘Glass Temple’ is a 19 CE Jain temple. Every surface is choc-a-bloc with inlaid glass. The city is also famous for its parks and gardens, including the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Regional Park and the Meghdoot Garden. The city has a rich and interesting music scene, and is home to the roots of the Indore Gharana, one of the vocal gharanas of Indian Classical Music. The Street Food Capital of India serves a scrumptious array of street food and local delicacies, the most favoured being the poha-jalebi combination! In Indore, the language is informal, the streets are crowded and people are warm, entertaining you with endless tales and stories of their city.
