  • Sharda mata mandir - beautiful temple on the height. I love the place very much because of cool air continuously touches our body, that awesome feeling, the nature we can see greeneries all around. Also there is best facility of rope way for the people who can't climb around 1100 stairs but actually there is a great enjoyment if 1 can climb up by the stairs for darshan. It is like, it gives us positive power.
  • Very nice place, visiting since childhood. Some say that this place is among 51 Shakti Peethas. I feel very blessed when come to here. To reach here one has to climb 1000+ stairs or can come via ropeway also and believe me most of the time climbing stairs takes much lesser time compare to ropeway. Jai Mata Di
  • One of the Shaktipiths, It is said that when lord Shiva was carrying the body of the dead mother goddess (Mai in Hindi) Sati, her necklace (har in Hindi) fell at this place and hence the name "Maihar" (Maihar = Mai+Har, meaning the "necklace of mother").[1] there is also one fact about Maihar, that related to famous king Alha and his brother Udal.As per locals of Maihar, the warriors Alha and Udal, who had war with Prithvi Raj Chauhan, were very strong followers of Sharda Devi. It is said that they are the first ones to visit the goddess in this remote forest. They called the mother goddess by the name "Sharda Mai", and henceforth she became popular as "Mata Sharda Mai". Alha worshiped for 12 years and got invincibility with the blessings of Sharda Devi. Behind the temple and downhill is Alha Pond. At a distance of 2 km from this pond is situated an "akhara" (wrestling ring) where Alha and Udal used to practice kushti (wrestling). The people of Maihar believe that Alha is still alive and comes at 4:00 a.m. to worship the Goddess
