Bhedaghat Tourism

Also regarded as the Marble Rocks of Bhedaghat, this small town has earned a reputation for the 100 feet rocks on either sides of Narmada in not only India, but all across the world.

Bhedaghat is in close proximity of one of the major cities of Madhya Pradesh of Jabalpur. Bhedaghat is also known for the Dhuandar Falls (Dhuan means smoke and Dhar means flow), a huge cascade of water that falls from a height of 98 feet. Boating in Bhedaghat especially during the moonlit night would surely make up for an unforgettable experience. The boatmen of these place are storytellers that will tell you about the place in the form of interesting stories.

The other notable attractions include 64 Yogini Temple and 'Bandar Kudini', a spot where two cliffs are so close to each other that monkeys hop over from one side to another.

More on Bhedaghat

History of Bhedaghat

Bhedaghat, often finds its history brought under the umbrella of the history of Jabalpur, owing to the close distance at which these two are located. However, Bhedaghat has some interesting mythological tales associated with it. There are some debates amongst various historians on the issue of what is the real story behind the name “Bhedaghat”. One strand of people believe that the name Bhedaghat was named after the Rishi, Bhrigu Rishi, who lived on the banks of the Narmada river. Another strand believes in the fact that “Bhedaghat” is the modern name of “Bhairavi Ghat”, where the Shakti Pooja used to take place (after research of some archaeological remains, it has been proven that Bhedaghat was indeed the place where the famous Shakti Pooja used to take place). A few others believe that the modern name came about from the term “Bhada”, which means “meeting” (indicating the confluence of the two rivers: Narmada and Pavananga).

Boating Experience

What with the beautiful, towering marble rocks, Bhedaghat is often referred to as the “Grand Canyon of India”. Thus, a boat ride in the river Narmada, to have a view of these beautiful marble rocks is a must. Normally, a boat ride takes about 45 minutes to one hour, where the guide takes the tourists to the different scenic locations where a number of Bollywood movies have been shot, and also to the various rocks with interesting colours and shapes. With the boating options open till 7 P.M., this experience becomes even more special under the moon, when the marble rocks have an entirely different show and appeal. So, if there happens to be an evening with a completely moonlit sky, boating in the Narmada river, meandering around these marble canyons is an absolute dream come true!

A Sea of Marble Rocks

Bhedaghat is known for its marble rock formations which are gigantic and breathtaking when one witness it in real life. From the banks one cannot see the actual formation of the rocks, hence a boat ride in the Narmada is a must. The rocks rise to about a hundred feet on either side soaring and glittering in splendour. The visit to this place is nothing but an out worldly experience which you can only feel and not talk about.

Restaurants and Local Food in Bhedaghat

Bhedaghat doesn't have much to offer for foodies as it is a small area and mostly visited just for the waterfalls and marble rocks. However, there are few stalls which serve snacks which can cater to the hunger needs of travellers.

One Day Itinerary

Reach Bhedaghat in the morning and head to the Chausath Yogini Temple which is dedicated to goddess Durga in Hindu Mythology. It is a climb of 150 steps to reach the temple but the view is spectacular and worth it. After the temple, visit the beautiful Dhuandhar Falls. Rejuvenate along the mighty waterfalls. It is an incredible and calming experience. Save the marble rocks for sunsets as it looks prettier during the sunset from the boat ride.

Ask a question from the travellers who have experience.

Q. Is it a better idea to visit Bhedaghat on a full moon night or any night is just as great?

Although Bhedaghat is one of those places which look straight out of a fairy tale pretty much whenever you visit it, moonlit nights here are just amazing. The river looks silver in the glow of the full moon and the imposing marble rocks. The experience of boating on a moonlit night is mesmerizing.

- Have a guide with you or make a well researched plan for yourself and only then embark on to your trip.
- Do not get fooled by the locals while buying artefacts, enquire in a couple of places.
