Jabalpur, seldom called as Sanskardhani, is a city in the state of Madhya Pradesh. It was the pleasure resort of the Gond Kings, which was later occupied by the rulers of Kalchuri Dynasty. The historical diversity was further enriched by the Marathas and then by the Britishers who took over the town in 1817. Today, the city stands as an important commercial centre of the state with Jabalpur tourist places making huge contributions to its popularity.
Among tourist attractions in Jabalpur, Rani Durgavati Memorial and Museum stands apart with its collection of artefacts, sculptures and traces of the rich history of the city. The Madan Mahal Fort, which was built by a Gond King, is also reminiscent of the past. Situated atop a hill, this fort provides bird's eye view of the city. Tourists can also visit The Tilwara Ghat, from where the ashes of Mahatma Gandhi were immersed in the Narmada River. Those looking to pay obeisance to deities can head towards the Gopal Lal Ji Maharaj Ka Mandir, Bade Mahaveer Ji Ka Mandir and Jain Mandir.
A Jabalpur tour is incomplete without visiting Bhedaghat which is at a small distance from the city. The splendour of the Marble Rocks found on either side of the Narmada River in Bhedaghat is unique. Among other things to do in Jabalpur is exploring the Bandhavgarh National Park which is around 155 km away from Jabalpur. The park, known for its highest density of Bengal tigers, will be a treat for all wildlife lovers.
