Bada Ganapati
Bada Ganapati - Lord Ganapathi Temple
This temple, built in 1875, is an important religious attraction of the city. People from different parts of India throng Indore to pay their obeisance to Lord Ganesha at this shrine. As the name suggests, the temple enshrines the largest statue of 'Ganapati' or Lord Ganesha in the whole world. This massive idol measures 8m from crown to foot and is made of metallic frames like gold, silver, copper, brass, and iron.
Central Museum
Central Museum - Collections of Jain & Hindu Sculpture
Established in 1929, Central Museum was envisioned as a purely regional institution. The place today preserves and exhibits various antiquities from the western Malwa area of Madhya Pradesh. Some of the focal attractions of the place include paintings, sculptures, terracotta artwork, coins and other architectural relics.
Chattri Bagh
Chattri Bagh - Memorial
Chattri Bagh is a major draw amongst tourist visiting Indore. Located near the Khan River, the place is characterized by a cluster of 'chattris' or memorial canopies, dedicated to the erstwhile Holkar rulers and their family members. These dome shaped cenotaphs, with pyramidal spires on top, are built on the burial sites of the Holkars. The most attractive of the many cenotaphs is the one commemorated to Malhar Rao Holkar I, the founder of the Holkar dynasty.
Kanch Mandir
Kanch Mandir - Glass Temple
Built by Sir Hukamchand Seth in the early twentieth century, this Digambar Jain temple is something you cannot afford to miss on your trip to Indore. The building is unique because it displays austere exteriors and intricate mirror works on its interiors. The doors, ceilings, floors and pillars of this temple are adorned with glass. Colorful glass paintings depicting stories from Jain scriptures, arranged inside the temple, form a major attraction of the place.
Lalbagh Palace
Lalbagh Palace - Impressive architectural monument of Holkars
Lal Baag Palace is one of the grandest monuments the Holkar dynasty left Indore. A reflection of their taste, grandeur and lifestyle, its construction began in 1886 under Tukoji Rao Holkar II, and was carried out in three phases. The final phase was completed in 1921 under Tukoji Rao Holkar III. Many royal receptions were held here. It has a total area of 28 hectares, and at one time it had the reputation of having one of the best rose gardens in the country.
Mahatma Gandhi Hall
Mahatma Gandhi Hall
Formerly known as the King Edward Hall, it was opened in 1905 by the future King George V. However, locally it is known by a third name: the Clocktower. An excellent example of Indo-Saracenic architecture, it was designed by Charles Frederick Stevens of Bombay. Faced in white Seoni and red Patan stone, it has a central domed clocktower and two-storey wings terminated by domed towers. Inside is a spacious hall with a seating capacity of over 2,000. Above it are a terraced roof, minarets and cupolas in Rajput style.
Rajwada
Rajwada - Fusion of Mughal, Maratha and French architectural style
The palace of the Holkars, the ruling dynasty of Indore, is nowhere as old as some of the greatest palaces of India and has very little history behind it. The most notable thing one can say about it is that the palace has been up in flames three times in its 200-year-old history. It was reduced to no more than a facade after the fire in 1984 destroyed most of it. Built by Maharaja Malhar Rao Holkar II (1811-34) in the old part of the town, the seven-storey gateway of the Old Palace towers over the busy lanes of the Kajuri Bazaar. It is the only existing seven storied entrance of a palace. The palace consists of a splendid range of buildings that you’ll love to amble through. To the right of the gateway facing the main square is the Gopal Temple (1832), a large central hall with granite pillars supporting an elaborately carved roof. The temple enshrines the idol of the family deity Malhari Martand.
