Posted on July 6, 2017 by ghoomophirosisters
Bhedaghat is one of those very few places in Madhya Pradesh that offers perfect combination of the natural and manmade marvels to feel amazed about. Also known popularly as the place of the marble rocks, Bhedaghat is one beauty of a city. Reaching here isn’t also very difficult as the nearest airport, the Jabalpur airport happens to be about 30 kilometres away from the place. Coming here through the roadways is also quite easy and straightforward. Government buses runs in innumerable numbers to the city from Jabalpur.
Home of the Narmada River, Bhedaghat has a lot of things to offer to the visitors. A few among them are listed below.
Marble rocks- Remember the movie Asoka? Starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan? We know you do! The film was extensively shot here. The huge marble rocks are located at the place and are a great source of amazement to the visitors. The gigantic Magnesium and limestone rocks flow freely in the Narmada river and that provides a great view that seems mystical and outwardly. This is one of the biggest attractions in the city and hopefully will keep attracting the massive number of tourists each year.
Dhuandhar Falls-The Dhuandhar Falls famous with the name Smoke cascade, which refers to its name ‘Dhuan’ means smoke and “Dhar” means flowing water. The beautiful picturesque art of Mother Nature, the famous waterfall of north India is located at Bhedaghat 30 km away from Jabalpur. The Waterfalls are always a definite win when it comes to visiting a place that remains largely under appreciated. As the Narmada Rivers makes its way swiftly through the massive marble rocks, there comes a spot where the distance narrows down to a great degree and that results in the great waterfalls. Dhuandhar literally means crazy and wild, get the idea yourself now.
Boating- Boating is always a great experience and when it takes place amidst some of the most delicious landscapes, it’s worth a lot. Bhedaghat and the Narmada River offer the same to the tourists. A boat ride down the smoothly flowing water of the Narmada River while having a surrounding view of the villages that comes in the way. Most of the boating takes place under the night when the nature is calm and composed. It’s just you, your loved ones and the clear sky full of stars.
Chausath Yogini Temple- This particular attraction is for the more religious ones among the tourists. Dedicated to the fierce goddess Durga, the temple is said to have been built in the 10th century. There is intricate stone work that has been done on the inside along with the very magnetic idols of the goddess that reeks of artistic brilliance.
Soapstones Artifacts- If you happen to be one of those very few people interested in the intricate stone work, then you must take a look at what artists of this little place are actually capable of. The locales are quite well versed in giving some amazing and delicate design to the marbles. You can’t leave the city without buying a few of them.
Bhedaghat is open for visitors in all seasons but travellers must note that boating remains closed in monsoon season i.e. from July to September.
