Dewas , Madhya Pradesh

The seat of the Dewas princely state during the British raj and an ancient town situated on the Malwa plateau in Madhya Pradesh, is today one of the leading industrial towns and is making prominent strides to a bright and happy future. The name Dewas is derived from the Devi Vaishini hill in the city, commonly known as Tekri. The hill has a temple of deity Devi Chamunda tulja bhavani and Kalika Mata. This is a place of pilgrimage and people from all over come here to offer their prayers in Dewan Today one of the most progressive places, even though it is a small ton, it houses international companies and their manufacturing units. Companies such as Tata and Ranbaxy have their units here which has provided people with a lot of employment and the town is rapidly developing into an industrial hub. Dewas is known as the Soya capital of India and is a major part of the soya bean processing industry in the country. One of the sights, tough very industrial to watch is the series of windmills that were established on a mountain for power supply. These are massive windmills and provide 15 megawatt of powers for the industrialisation here. This is a plce which makes you realise that even today some of the manmade objects can absolutely awe you with the amount of hard work that they display. Located in the heart of the country, Dewas shows you the life of a typical Indian in n industrial city who is happy to be there. A different take on life, it is a place worth visiting, even other than the pilgrimage.
