Bhedaghat in Jabalpur
Bhedaghat at a glance
Dhuandhar Falls is one of the most visited places of Jabalpur city. Its charismatic experience catches the attention of tourist since many years. In this fall, the jet flow of Narmada River throws the droplets of water so forcefully that it will form a smoky white effect along with a powerful thunder which declares its presence from a long distance. That's why we called it Dhuandhar (Dhuan denotes "Smoke" and Dhar denotes "Jet Flow").
Soaring in glittering splendored, 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. These white rocks with views of black and dark green volcanic seams are truly majestic, and produce a magical effect on moonlit nights. The holy river flows by tranquilly flanked by the towering cliffs which reflect in it like a mirror the changing moods of nature. A little distance away, it becomes turbulent as it plunges in a mighty water fall known as Dhuandhar.

Facts about Bhedaghat
In his Highlands of Central India Captain J. Forsyth speaks eloquently about the infinitely varied beauty of the rocks: "the eye never wearies of the ... effect produced by the broken and reflected 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 prominence 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."
