Bhedaghat Marble Rocks Jabalpur - Travel information

This article gives complete information on Bhedaghat Marble Rocks Tourist Attractions and the Dhuandhar Falls at Jabalpur Madhya Pradesh.

The small town of Bhedaghat, located in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh has evolved into a major tourist attraction thanks to the Marble Rocks. The Bhedaghat Marble Rocks is featured in the Shahrukh Khan-starrer Bollywood film Asoka, in the song Raat Ka Nasha Abhi.

The Rocks are not located in just one spot, but stretch in majestic splendour on both sides of the Narmada river, Madhya Pradesh. Soaring to towering heights which reach up to nearly 100 feet, the Marble Rocks look benignly down upon the gently flowing waters of the Narmada river. These placid waters turn into a roaring white torrent some distance away, forming the Bhedaghat Dhuandhar Falls.

Thank you for sharing the details. My mother-in-law wanted to visit this place since she has some attachment to this place. Is this place safe for old people? She is around 82 and can't walk long distance. Is there a lot of walk to see all the places?
