Bheda Ghat-Marble Rocks
Bheda Ghat-Marble Rocks in Jabalpur

On the banks of river Narmada this small place of Jabalpur is situated, and widely famous for its marble rocks is at a distance about 25 Km from Jabalpur by road. Soaring in glittering splendour, the marble rocks at Bhedaghat rise to a hundred feet on either side of the Narmada. The serene loveliness of the scene is one of cool quiet, the sunlight sparkling on the marble-white pinnacles and casting dappled shadows on the pellucid waters. Sunlight, now glancing from a pinnacle of snow-white marble reared against the deep blue of the sky as from a point of silver ; touching here and there with bright lights the prominences of the middle heights; and again losing itself in the soft bluish grays of their recesses. Here and there the white saccharine limestone is seamed by veins of dark green or black volcanic rock; a contrast which only enhances, like a setting of jet, the purity of the surrounding marble.


Dhuandhar
Dhuandhar in Jabalpur

In Bhedaghat The Dhuandhar Falls is a well known sight where one witnesses beautiful scenery and complete tranquility. The beautiful falls is rough yet calm, soft yet loud and undoubtedly breathtaking.The waterfall is located 25 km from Jabalpur on the Narmada river.Dhuandhar Falls or the smoke cascade is a beautiful waterfall in Bhedaghat. The Narmada River after passing the Marble Rocks narrows to become a smoky waterfall. The plunge of Dhuandhar Falls is sudden and hence has a greater effect. This beautiful fall is a spectacular sight in Bhedaghat.


Lamheta Ghat

Vaishnav and Shaiva temples constructed by the Beohar-dynasty in c. 17-18th century CE in LamhetaGhat near Jabalpur alongside the eastern shore of holy river Narmada upstream of the Marble Gorge 'BheraGhat'.

The holy location is a few kilometers upstream of the Marble Rocks accessible from the Dhuadhar Waterfall as well as the Tilwara-Medical bypass. There are several temples constructed by the Beohar dynasty between 16-18th century CE, including the till-top Radhika-Madhav Temple (also referred to as Radha-Krishna/Radha-Govind Temple), and Rudra-Bhaskar (also known as Shiv-Surya Temple). The entire temple complex, housing about 6-7 temples and a dharmshala on the banks of Narmada, is collectively referred-to as "Shankarji Maharaj Mandir Parisar" after the main temple. Following the earthquake of 1997, some of these are dilapidated whereas others have been repaired and/or renovated. While the temples belong to a private family trust, the "Sri Radhakrishna Charitable Private Trust, Managing Trustee Beohar Dr Anupam Sinha", the local custodianship is under the family priest Pandit Santosh Dubey Ji Maharaj.


Bargi Dam

On the river Narmada. Local authorities have started a cruise boat which runs on the reservoir of Bargi dam. Bargi Dam is located on the Jabalpur - Nagpur NH - 7 highway. About 40 km / 45 mins. from Jabalpur city, Tourist Destination Bargi Dam is built on Narmada river. Tourists can enjoy water-sports in Bargi Dam.

Antique frescoes on the walls of 'Shaheed-Smarak', this one depicting the 'Quit India Movement' in Jabalpur by famous artist Beohar Rammanohar Sinha from Santiniketan.


Shaeed Smarak

Shaeed Smarak is a historic and monumental circular building in what was Shaeed Smarak in Jabalpur known as Gole-Bazar during British times and also as Wright Town. Shaheed Smarak has fresco murals or wall-paintings by Beohar Rammanohar Sinha and his colleagues from Santiniketan on the walls, balcony, parapet and dome. The central theme of the frescoes is India's war of independence, fought between 16th and 19th century AD, starting with Rani Durgavati gearing-up against Moghul Emperor Akbar's attack on Gondwana (now Jabalpur and Mandla). Painted by the famous Beohar Rammanohar Sinha, this is the first painting ever made on Rani Durgawati. The provincial congress committee in the 1950s constructed an auditorium in the shape of a miniaturized version of Delhi's Parliament House with a hall in the middle, a corridor running around it, and rooms for art and cultural activities including an Art Gallery. It is now being looked-after by a Public Trust.
