The heart of India offers you not just the grandeur of medieval cities, but also boasts of geological marvels dating back to the Mesolithic era. The region is also known for pristine dense forests that enchant you with its greenery. If you have not yet planned to visit the goldmine that Madhya Pradesh is, the following itinerary will surely make you plan a trip to it right away:
