Founded by the Hindu philosopher Mandan Mishra, Mandaleshwar is situated east of Maheshwar, on the banks of the river Narmada. It is believed that Mandan Mishra had his famous theological debate with Adi Shankaracharya at the Gupteshwar Mahadev Temple here. This is where he firmly established his Mayavada philosophy. The town`s main attractions include a palace built by Tukoji Rao Holkar II and a stone fort built by the Mughals. Mandaleshwar served as a British cantonment from 1819 to 1864.
There are a series of temples on the Ram Ghat here. A flight of 123 steps leads down to the wide ghat. The Rama, Hanumana, Dattatreya and Chappan Dev temples here draw thousands of pilgrims each year. Interestingly, an annual abhisheka (ritual anointation) is performed in the Dattatreya Temple in the name of Albert Einstein, and another in the name of Lenin, but no one seems to know when this practice started.
