The Sharda temple of Maihar is about 502AD old. Mythology says that when Lord Shiva was in state of deep sorrow and anguish, due to the death of Sati (Wife of Lord Shiva) and was roaming in earth with her dead body on his back. The necklace of Sati fell down in Maihar. And hence it got its name - Maihar which is formed by “Mai” - mother and “har” - necklace. The Maihar Sharda Devi Temple is known for the 1063 steps to the top. In order to promote more visitors here the government has started a rope-way facility to reach top of the Sharda devi temple here.
