Mahu Sadhana Shivir

Mahu is located 23 kilometres (14 mi) south-west of Indore city, towards Mumbai on the old Mumbai-Agra Road.

Jagadguru Shree Kripalu Ji Maharaj studied advanced Sanskrit and Ayurved in Ashtang Ayurved College, which is in Lokmanya Nagar, Mahu, Indore. Therefore Mahu holds a special significance for the devotees of Shree Maharaj. When Maharajji was 17 years old, he led a 6-month continuous chanting of the “Maha Mantra” in Gopal Mandir, which is also near Mahu. 

Apart from that, Omkarshwar Temple which is one of the 12 revered Jyotirlinga of Lord Shiva, is also around Mahu. It is on an island called Mandhata or Shivapuri in the Narmada river.
