The true beauty of Madhya Pradesh cannot be fathomed from pictures alone, and so, to experience its spirit and diversity, you will have to spend some time there. There are world-famous historical monuments which will amaze you with their architectural superiority and religious shrines and fill you with peace. Madhya Pradesh is truly a land of wonders which you must explore first-hand on your next vacation.
Madhya Pradesh is dotted with historical landmarks of international repute. The Mandu Fort, the largest fort of India, is located in the city of Mandu, which was built way back in 6 century BC. Another point of attraction of Mandu is the Jahaz Mahal, which is a majestic palace resembling a ship. There are numerous other ancient monuments in Mandu that make it one of the must-visit destinations in Madhya Pradesh.
Over the years, Madhya Pradesh has become synonymous with the mesmerizing Khajuraho Temple which is a startling evidence of how evolved artwork was in the 9 century AD when it was built. It depicts a grand celebration of life and is also an important site for pilgrimage for the Hindus and the Jains.
The Mahastupa at Sanchi, built by Emperor Ashoka of the Maurya dynasty, is a sacred monument of the Buddhists and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Mahastupa contains intricate carvings depicting the life of Gautama Buddha and there is also an Ashoka Pillar inside the temple complex.
Ujjain, Bhopal, Indore, Gwalior and Burhanpur are some of the other cities in Madhya Pradesh that have innumerable religious and heritage sites, architectural wonders and mesmerising landscapes. The Datia Palace in Datia City, the Shahi Qila, Royal Hamam (bath) and the Asirgarh Fort in Burhanpur will take you back to the times long-forgotten and remind you of our glorious past. Other than these, the intricate cave drawings of Bhimbetka made by the ancient man over 30 thousand years ago will dazzle you and leave you awestruck.
The Holy Pashupatinath Temple in Mandsaur, and the Pataleshwar Mahadev Temple and Narmada Udgam Kund in Amarkantak are important destinations for pilgrimage for Hindus. Amarkantak is famous for its scenic beauty, and its forest contains many medicinal herbs and is home to the Kapil Dhara and Dugdha Dhara Falls which never fail to amaze the tourists.
The Kanha National Park, Pench National Park and the Bandhavgarh National Park in Madhya Pradesh are home to hundreds of birds and animals. No tour to Madhya Pradesh is fully complete without a safari in one of these parks to get the chance for an encounter with the royal Bengal tigers. Barasingha, leopards, wild dogs and multiple species of birds and other wildlife can also be found abundantly in these parks.
