Bhedaghat (Dhuandhar)..Famous place in Jabalpur


Bhedaghat is a town and a nagar panchayat in Jabalpur district in the state of Madhya PradeshIndia. It is situated by the side of river Narmada and is approximately 20 km from Jabalpur city. Its most famous sights are the Dhuandhar FallsMarble Rocks, and the Chaunsath Yogini temple
The temple is one of the four major extant temples containing carvings of sixty four yogini, female yoga mystics. It was built in the 10th century under theKalachuri empire. It commands a view of the whole area around and of the river flowing through the marble rocks.
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 Kodini". In a moonlit 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.
