Chhatris or cenotaphs erected in memory of the Holkar rulers and their families are incomparable examples of Maratha architecture and sculpture. These Chhatris were the temples where Holkars used to attend Poojas. The largest and the most impressive is that of Malhar Rao Holkar I lavishly decorated with frescoes while that of Rani Ahilyabai is also important. As time passed, they were neglected and shopkeepers and hawkers encroached the land around them. But recently, District Administration forcefully got them moved from the place and secured back the significance and beauty. Thus they got back historic significance and glory. On the banks of River Khan, it has seven memorials of the Holkar kings but the inner sanctums are locked.
