Wonders of Madhya Pradesh


1. Khajuraho

The Khajuraho Group of Monuments are one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in India. The temples are famous for their Nagara-style architectural symbolism and their erotic sculptures.

Most Khajuraho temples were built between 950 and 1050 by the Chandela dynasty. I have visited Khajuraho many times, Winter is best season to visit but I love to explore Khjuraho and nearby areas in monsoon because the panorama is scenic.

4. Kanha

Kanha Tiger Reserve, also called Kanha National Park, is one of the tiger reserves of India and the largest national park of Madhya Pradesh. I have been there twice but was not lucky enough to site a Tiger, but sited many other animals like Deer, Bison, Barasingha, sambar, barking deer and many more

5. Orcha

Orcha is very near from Jhasi and Khajuraho. Ram Raja Temple, Jahangir Mahal, Chaturbhuj Temple and Betwa river are the famous point of interest and are must visit sites. Royal Chhatris are dot the vicinity of the fort and the Betwa river and look mesmerizing. If given a chance you should stay in Heritage hotel at Orcha.

6. Chitrakoot

Chitrakoot is my favorite destination in Madhya pradesh I love the Kamadgiri Parikrama where lots of Monkeys come and have food by holding your hands nicely. Chitrakoot falls are bewitching. Gupt Godavari Caves is very unique and you need to explore the deep caves which is partially filled with water it was the most exiting place in Chitrakoot for me. We took bath at Dawn in Ramghat. Sphatic Shila,Hanuman Dhara,Janki Kund and Sati Anusuiya Ashram are famous tourist points in Chitrakoot.

7. Mandu

Mandu or Mandavgad is a ruined city in the present-day Mandav area of the Dhar district. It is located in the Malwa region of western Madhya Pradesh, . In the 11th century, Mandu was the sub division of the Tarangagadh or Taranga kingdom. Roopmati's Pavilion, Baz Bahadur's Palace, Rewa Kund, Malik Mughith tomb, Darya Khan's Tomb complex, Shri Mandavagadh Teerth, Jami Masjid, Hoshang Shah's Tomb, Jahaz Mahal/Ship Palace and the Darwazas are famous structures in Mandu.

8. Omkareshwar

Omkareshwar is a Hindu temple dedicated to God Shiva. It is one of the 12 revered Jyotirlinga shrines of Shiva. The beauty of this place is that It is on an river island called Mandhata or Shivapuri in the Narmada river; and the fascinating fact is that the shape of the island is said to be like the Hindu ॐ symbol. The boat rides around the island are pretty scary as the waves formed by river was high and looked dangerous to me.

9. Amarkantak 

This is where the Narmada River emerge, the cleanest major river in india.The Amarkantak region is a unique natural heritage area and is the meeting point of the Vindhya and the Satpura Ranges, with the Maikal Hills being the fulcrum. Narmada Udgam Temple, Ancient Temples of Kalachuri, Shri Yantra Mandir, Dudh Dhara Falls and Kapil Dhara waterfall are the major tourist sites. Amarkantak also serve as summer escape destination.
