Travel To Indore
Indore was built by Rani Ahilyabai, the brave Holkar queen. Situated on the banks of the rivers Saraswati and Khan,this vibrant city has some beautiful monuments associated with the medieval Holkar dynasty. The largest city of Madhya Pradesh and its commercial capital, it is also the hub that drives most of the activity in central India be it political ,commercial, educational ,entertainment or trend-setting fashions. And being surrounded by large and important industrial towns and proximity to Mumbai gives it just that gripe. No wonder it has acquired the sobriquet of 'Mini Mumbai'. Regal Chowk is named after a cinema hall that still run films but it is a meeting point for the new and old Indore.
Cross the bridge over the railway and you enter the crowded environs of the city that eventually lead to Rajwada, the erstwhile palace of the Holkars and around which all activity revolved in regal times. On the southern side is the more spacious city that has now become the commercial hub.Lined with elegant malls,highrise office buildings, the high court, banquet halls,hotels, restaurants -this area wakes up early and retires late. Most of the hotels and many of the good restaurants are located in this area.
