Indore is a tier 2 city, the largest city of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.A central power city, Indore exerts a significant impact upon commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment and has been described as the commercial capital of the state.

With a Census-estimated 2011 population of 2,167,447 distributed over a land area of just (526 km2), Indore is the densely populated major city in the central province. The Indore Metropolitan Area's population is the state's largest, with 2.2 million people living there. It is the 14th largest city in India and 147th largest city in the world.

Legends say that while on a journey to conquer Ujjain, Raja Indra Singh laid a camp beside the river Kanh (modern name Khan) and was very impressed by the scenic greenery of the place. Thus he laid a Shivling at the meeting place of the rivers Kanh and Saraswati and got the Indreshwar temple constructed along with the settlement Indrapur. Years later under the Maratha Rule, when it was given to the Maratha Subedar (General) 'Malhar Rao Holkar', its name had evolved to Indur. This name was changed to Indore during the British raj.
