water fall bhedaghat



Bhedaghat is a town in Jabalpur district in the state of Madhya Pradesh, India. It is situated right by the side of river Narmada and is approximately 20 Km away from the Jabalpur city. It is famous for water fall “Dhuandhar” and white marble rocks. Soaring in glittering splendor, the Marble Rocks at Bhedaghat rise to a hundred feet on either side of the Narmada.
Its major attraction is a waterfall known as Dhuandhar, which looks like smoke coming out of the river and therefore it got its name as "Dhuan (smoke)-dhar (flow of water)". Another major attraction which needs mention is 'Bandar Kodini', when one travels in between the marble rocks in a boat, the mountains at both the sides at one point come so close that the monkeys are able to jump across them, hence the name "Bandar Kudini". In a moonlite night, the travel between the marble rock mountains in a boat on the river Narmada is a heavenly site which should not be missed for anything.

These marble rocks are basically metamorphic rock that are produced when limestone buried under the ground goes through constant physical and chemical changes. Marble rocks in Bhedaghat are the only of its kind in India. Lying across the river Narmada, these rocks soar high up to 30 mts, and have emerged as an inevitable tourist destination. To watch these rocks with volcanic ridges of green and black is a marvellous experience. Be it day or night, these marbles are a treat to the eyes. These orthogonal genius are milk white and rise 100 ft, on either side of the calm crystal-clear waters of Narmada.

This in not all. The best experience can be procured only if you enjoy the boat ride on a moonlit night. From November to May, which is an ideal time to visit these saccharine rocks, boating is allowed here. A new ambit, of floodlighting has been done here, that adds to the glamor. The view of these rocks amongst the river on moonlit night make them appear like a sparkling of diamonds on a silver blanket.When you are on the boat do not forget to ask your guide to show you the Monkey's Leap, the point where the mountainous rocks are the closest to each other. Fables have it that this is the spot where Hanuman (character from Ramayana) had set foot on his way to Lanka. 
Another interesting point is the rock formation called the Hanthi ka Paon (Elephant Foot), some other interesting rock formations include a deer (Miran Kunch), the horns of a cow (Craay Singh) and also the Horse's footprints that are also worth a visit.
Chausat Yogini Temple, standing on a hillock, is the venue from where one can eye the marble rocks and the Dhuandar waterfall concomitantly. This 10th century ancient temple, in itself is a great attraction that is exclusively maneuvered and has baroque figurines of deities belonging to the Kalchuri period. This temple is easily approachable from different areas of Bhedaghat. This temple also has an interesting legend associated with it. It is said that this temple has an underground passage that connects it to the Gond Queen Durgavati's palace. 
Though, this fact is yet to be proved you can always try to look for the secret passage. You may never know when can you become an ardent explorer.

It is believed that the 10th century Chaunsat Yogini Temple in Bhedaghat has an underground secret passage that connects it to the Gond Queen Durgavati's Palace.
