The ancient temple town of Maheshwar is best known for the beautiful Narmada river and Devi Ahilya Bai Holkar - its founding queen as well as the beautiful handloom traditions she established and patronised.

Yeshwant has been involved deeply in preserving and promoting Maheshwari handloom through the Rehwa society and restoration project of the iconic Ahilyeshwar chatri in collaboration with the world monument fund. While also promoting luxury must visit Ahilya by the sea and Ahilya fort.
