This temple locates in the way from Rajwada to Ahilyabai ghants. Orange colored and large temples were closed during my visit. There are good seating where you can seat and rest.

Beautiful and serene place and a must visit when in Maheshwar. Loved the bright orange colored temple though we didnt know much history of Kartavira Arjun. We visited in August with not many tourists around and it had rained - so was just beautiful !
