Dewas is a city on the Malwa plateau in the West-central part of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. It is located about 143 km southwest from Bhopal, and 35 km from Indore. It is the administrative center of the Dewas District, and was formerly the seat of two 15 Gun Salute princely states during the British Raj, Dewas Junior state and Dewas senior state, ruled by the royal Maratha 'Puar' (or 'Pawar'). Today, Dewas is an industrial town and houses a government bank note press which is the largest of its kind in Asia.Origin of nameThe name Dewas is derived from the Devi Vaishini hill in the city, commonly known as Tekri. The hill has a temple of the deities Devi Tulja Bhawani, Chamunda Mata and Kalika Mata. The word Dewas is believed to be a sandhi of the words Dev (deity) and Vas Marathi (abode), so Dewas means abode of the deity or god. Swami Shivom Tirtha wrote the history of the hill (Tekri) of Dewas in his book—Sadhan Shikhar. E.M.Forster wrote a book inspired by the area The Hill of Devi in 1953.
