Bhedaghat

“By the side of river Narmada,
In the heart of Madhya Pradesh,
There is a ‘Land of the Marble Rocks’,
Where you could lose yourself into nature.”

If you are a nature lover then, Bheadaghat is definitely one of the finest places you need to consider for visiting and touring.

The major attractions here include the beautiful Marble Rocks (the humongous limestone and magnesium rocks with a beautiful scenic view, featured in many Bollywood movies!),

The exotic Dhuandhar Falls (probably the main attraction over here with the Narmada river swiftly paving its way through the Marble Rocks and plunges into a beautiful waterfall),

the architectural Chausath Yogini Temple ( dedicated to the mother of universe in Hindu mythology with deities belonging to Kalchuri period), the Soapstone Artefacts and the Shopping stores which sell artefacts made out of marble.

The major experiences here include travelling in a boat amidst the Marble Rocks, with mountains on the either sides, at one point coming so close that the monkeys are able to jump across them, hence the name “Bandar Kodini”. On a moonlit night, the travel between the marble rock mountains in a boat on the river Narmada is one of the popular experiences here.The town is known for its jumpers.

The best time to visit this place is most probably in the months from November to May as the summers and winters here are quite moderate with optimum temperatures (the monsoon here is featured with heavy rainfall and the Marble Rocks are also shut during this time).
