Sehore is a city and a municipality in Sehore district in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. It is the district headquarters of Sehore District and is located on the Bhopal-Indore highway, 37 km away from Bhopal.
Some inscriptions on rocks discovered in the vicinity of modern Sehore state its name as Sidhapur and Sidrapur. On the other hand, some etymologists[which] believe that Sehore derives its name from Sher, a word in Hindi, which means a lion, and a large number of lions were found in the area in earlier times. The location of Sehore in the foothills of the Vindhyachal mountains lends credence to this belief.This city is famous for the ancient ganesh mandir.
