Raisen , Madhya Pradesh

Raisen is a place in Madhya Pradesh which is also the headquarters of the Raisen district here. It literally means the royal residence. This is a place which has been a princely state for the most of its existence and ruled by many dynasties, especially the Rajputs. This it still one of the places that bear the legacy of the princely rule in the many monuments that are present in this town. A place that shows you how rich the heart of India is, this is a wonderful place that you can visit in Madhya Pradesh. One of the most important places to visit here is the fort that bears the testimony of all the greatness of this place. The origins of the fort go back to 1200 AD. Up to the 15th century it was under rulers of various Hindu lines, including the Rajputs. This is one very sprawling fort with temples and masjids and mazhars located in the very complex to show that this was always a very secular place and gave all its people the freedom of worship. The most visited place in Raisen is the Shrine of Hazrat Peer Fatehullah Shah Baba who was a well known muslim saint. People have a strong belief that ones desires are fulfilled if asked to God via Hazrat Peer Fatehullah Shah Baba. Near the fort there are some wonderful places to visit. These are some very ancient caves and rock paintings and reveal the age of Raisen to be very very old. A truly very regal and beautiful place to visit, this is one of those places which make you want to believe in the wonderful stories of valour of our country.
