Central India Tourism Guide
Madhya Pradesh is India’s largest state. It spreads right across the heart of the sub-continent, covering an area much larger than Germany or Italy (443,446 sq. km). Almost a third of the state is under forest cover and it boasts some of the finest wildlife reserves in the country. The denizens of the deep woodlands and forests of Madhya Pradesh are the stately ‘gaur’ (Indian bison), wild dogs (‘dhole’), deer and antelopes like the sambar, chinkara, cheetal (spotted deer), chousingha (four horned antelope) and the majestic Royal Bengal Tiger.
These forests are home to over 900 Royal Bengal tigers, a sixth of the world’s population of this endangered animal. No wonder Madhya Pradesh proudly sports the appellation, "Tiger State"! Spectacular low mountain ranges and ravines, meandering rivers and waterfalls, forts and fortresses, palaces and hunting lodges, ruined cities and temple towns and miles and miles of dense forests
Reaching Madhya Pradesh
By Air : Bhopal, Gwalior, Khajuraho and Indore are connected by air to Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Calcutta. A number of private airlines have commercial services to the state, as does the national domestic carrier. Auto rickshaws, taxis and airport-city buses are available outside the terminus for the ride to the city centre, or you could have a rented car meet you on arrival.
By Rail: Madhya Pradesh lies on the main rail routes between Delhi-Mumbai and Delhi-Chennai. Superfast and express trains link the major cities in the state to other important destinations in the country. The Taj Express and the Shatabdi Express are two superfast trains from Delhi to Gwalior (4hrs) and Bhopal (7hrs).
By Road : Towns and cities in Madhya Pradesh are well connected by inter state buses that ply to Madhya Pradesh from the neighbouring states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Chattisgarh and Maharashtra. The major highways are well maintained, making for pleasant driving conditions. The distances between Bhopal (the capital of Madhya Pradesh) and Bombay is 789 km, Aurangabad-588 km, Ahmedabad-571 km, Agra-523 km, Delhi-728 km.
The best time to visit Madhya Pradesh is in the winter months, anytime from October to March. Bhopal has an extremely pleasant climate, so all times of the year are good to travel. Gwalior, Mandu, Indore and Jabalpur can be very hot in summer months with the mercury climbing as high as 40°- 42° Celsius.
The best time to visit the National Parks in Madhya Pradesh differ slightly depending on which one you wish to visit: Bandhavgarh is good between November and June; for Kanha, the best time is February to June, though travellers would find the weather more comfortable during the cooler winter months of November to January. The parks are closed during the monsoon season from 1 July to 31 October.
Bhopal was founded in the 11th century and was the capital of the Parmar. But what you get to see in Bhopal today for the most part dates back only to the 18th century. As far as sightseeing goes, it is an interesting city, a mixture of the traditional and contemporary that sprawls across hills and lakes. The old city, with its crowded markets, narrow alleys, beautiful palaces, old havelis (manors) and fine mosques, lies juxtaposed with the well-planned new city of broad avenues, modern buildings and well planned residential colonies.
On a hill, a few miles from Bhopal stands the prettiest and the oldest stupa in the world, the famous Sanchi stupa, ringed by a stone fence with exquisite toranas at its four gates. The stupas and ruins at Sanchi are places to visit as they tell the tale of the spread of Buddhism across the plains of Central India.
Gwalior was for long the seat of the powerful Maratha kings, the Scindias. The Scindia family is still very much in the thick of political things, having the made the transition from rulers of the kingdom to contestants and winners of general elections. Their influence over the city continues to be strong. Take a sightseeing tour to this city with a strong cultural heritage and some of the finest exponents of Indian classical music claiming it as home. The Gwalior Fort is the city's chief attraction.
Travellers come from far and wide to see the world famous temples of Khajuraho. The temples are unique in architecture and stunning in their ornamentation, making Khajuraho a great place to see. The temples are all there is to see, but you don’t need much more than these magnificent monuments to the gods, as you try and absorb the breadth of man’s artistic ability and aesthetic vision that breathe life into mere slabs of stone.
Most people visiting the state head for Khajuraho to explore the thousand-year old temples whose outstanding architecture and ornamentation have made them a World Heritage Site.
However, Madhya Pradesh has a lot more to offer. It has the world’s largest cluster of stone-age rock shelters and cave paintings at Bhimbetka; the imposing forts of Gwalior and Indore, replete with romantic tales of valour and chivalry; the 16th and 17th century Bundela palaces and temples at Orchcha and ethereal Mandu, the historic capital of the Malwa Sultans, now all but a ghost town.
Hindu pilgrims travel from far and wide to pay obeisance at Ujjain. The holy city takes on a colorful festive ambience when thousands of devout Hindus arrive for a ritual dip in the river on the occasion of Simhastha (full moon to full moon of the Indian lunar months of Chaitra and Vaisakha, around April/May). Other places to visit in Madhya Pradesh are Maheshwar, Indore, Orchcha and Omkareshwar, which abound in temples and bathing ghats.
If you are looking for rest and relaxation you could head south to the cool and tranquil environs of Pachmarhi, the highest hill station in the state (alt. 1067m). Bhedaghat is a spectacular waterfall near Jabalpur, where the water cascades over cliffs of white marble. Marble Rocks, as it is commonly called, is an interesting stopover enroute to the nearby wildlife parks at Kanha or Bandhavgarh.
Holy Places in Madhya Pradesh
Madhya Pradesh is the central state of the Union of India and is also a major stopover in the tour chart of the globe trotters. Madhya Pradesh remained the favorite seat of the Guptas from 300-400 A.D and thus subsequently went under the control of the Mughals. The various cities dotted all over the state are the treasure trove of a lot of Holiday Tour attractions that still keep mesmerizing the visitors by the impression of its timeless charisma. Some of the most renowned among these Holiday Tour attractions in Madhya Pradesh are the holy Places in Madhya Pradesh.
