  A devout centre Maihar in the state of Madhya Pradesh boasts of a rare combination of tradition and history. Maihar literally means Mai-Mother’s Har-Necklace. Historians strongly believe that the necklace of the dead goddess Sati fell here when she was carried by Lord Shiva. 
 The crowning glory of Maihar is the Sharadha Devi Temple which is located on the Trikuta hills, which is about 5kms from the city, pilgrims come in large numbers every year to seek her blessings. The devotees fill their eyes with the beautiful idol of the goddess made of stone. There is an old manuscript near the goddess’s feet. Beside the goddess the statue of Lord Narsingh can be seen. These idols are estimated to be placed in about 502 AD. The introduction of the ropeway to the temple in the year 2009 benefited the pilgrims. The temple is famed to provide fascinating views of the underlying city.
 Alha and Udal who fought bravely with the great King Pritviraj Chauhan belongs to Maihar. Alha took up a tough penance for 12 years and became immortal by Sharadha Mata’s blessings. Alha pond is located behind the temple.  

 Devotees can visit Maihar to attain spiritual enlightenment and spend some time in tranquillity.
