Welcome to Madhya Pradesh -

the very Heart of India

Jabalpur

Jabalpur the capital and pleasure resort of the Gond Kings during the 12th century is famous for its natural wonder Bhedaghat.  Jabalpur was ruled by the Kalchuri dynasty in the later years. The Marathas were ruling over Jabalpur until 1817, when the British took over Jabalpur from them and left their impression on the spacious cantonment with its colonial residences and barracks. Jabalpur is a significant administrative centre today, bustling with commercial activity.


What to see in Jabalpur:
 


Bheraghat
 (Marble Mountains)

The marble rocks at Bheraghat rise to a hundred feet on either side of the river Narmada. A boat ride over the river Narmada flowing between the seven colored marble mountains is a lifetime experience.

In his high lands of Central India Capt J Forsyth wrote of them: ‘The eye never wearies of the effect produced by the broken and reflected sunlight, now glancing from a pinnacle of snow-white marble reared against the deep blue of the sky as far from a point of silver; touching here and therewith bright lights the prominences of the middle heights; and again losing itself in the soft bluish greys of their recesses..’. These white rocks with views of black/dark green volcanic seams rise to 30m on either side of the Narmada river and in moonlight produce a magical effect. Boating on a moonlit night, when the whole stretch of water is transformed into a sheet of liquid silver is absolutely magical and enchanting. 

 

Dhuandhar Falls 

The Narmada making its way through the Marble Rocks narrow down and then plunges in a waterfall known as Dhuandhar or the smoke cascade. So powerful is the plunge that its roar is heard from a far distance. The falls and the breaking of the volume of water at the crest present an awesome spectacle of nature’s power unleashed.

 

Evening Rituals and Aarti at Gwarighat, Jabalpur
The evening Naramda Aarti performed daily with rituals and chants at Gwarighat, Jabalpur is an event must see. A large number of people gather on the banks of river Narmada for the evening rituals and aarti. The atmosphere becomes divine and delightful when people offer prayers to thank river Narmada as being their mother and feeding them with her pious water since ages.

Chaunsath Yogini
