History Chhattisgarh – literally translating into Thirty-Six Forts – is among the largest states in India. The area has always held high position, which is amply clear with its mention in epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata. In between the 6th and 12th centuries, the city was reigned by Panduavanshi, Sarabhpurias, Somvanshi, Nagvanshi and Kalachuri rulers. From AD 1741 to 1845, the state was under the Maratha administration and after the British invaded the country, it was under them from 1845 to 1947. While India was struggling to become a free country, the region was fighting for its own identity as a separate state. Finally, on November 1, 2000, the present state of Chhattisgarh came into existence. Attractions The region provides great options for adventure and cultural tourism with a wondrous bundle of ancient monuments, rare wildlife, carved temples, enchanting waterfalls, insightful caves, vivid rock paintings and hill plateaus. Chhattisgarh has a green cover of 41.33 per cent of its total area, which makes it one of the richest biodiversity regions in the country. Noted attractions include Amrit Dhara Waterfalls, Tatapani or the hot spring in Balrampur district and Kutumsar Caves in Bastar district. Hotels The people of Chhattisgarh have their roots grounded to the traditional Indian values of 'Atithi Devo Bhava', which is reflected in their warmth and hospitality towards their guests. The accommodations available here range from hotels, resorts to inns, guesthouses and government lodges. Tourists can choose from this gamut as per their requirement and budget. Some of the finest hotels in the region are Hotel Babylon Inn, Hotel Mayura, Amit Regency and Hotel Shamrock International.
