History of Indore

According to the records, Rao Nandlal Chaudhary who was the chief landlord or Zamindar in Mughal period established the city of Indore. Once he went to the Indreshwar temple which was on the bank of the river Saraswati or Khan. Where he felt the location is so much safe and protected by hills and rivers from every sides and he decided to do establish a new city and gave name to this city Indrapur. He made a fort here and latter Indrapur became Indore.

We can say present Indore city started to develop in Mughal period. After Mughals it has been controlled by Nizams and after them Marathas ruled on it. In Marathas Maratha Peshwa Baji Rao became ruler of Malwa region and he appointed Maharaja Malhar Rao Holkar as Governer of Indore region/State. This way he was the first ruler of Indore and founder of the Holkar dynasty also. His daughter in law Ahilyabai Holkar moved the capital of state to Maheshwar. But then also Indore remained an important commercial place.
