Madhya Pradesh Tourist Places and Travel Attractions


Madhya Pradesh consists of one of the world’s earliest and most highly developed civilizations. It has over 1,800 magnificent monuments bearing witness to the glory that was this land of Malwa. Cheek by jowl with this centuries-old culture of many varied streams, live some of the most primitive of aboriginal tribes in India. And in this great central plateau of rugged mountain ranges, deep ravines and rushing rivers, there are also vast unexplored tracts of thick forest where some of the country’s finest big game roam.

It is known as the ‘heart of India’ not only because of its location in the centre of the country but because it offers diverse experiences in art, culture, nature, religion and history.

The natural beauty of State is equally varied. With plateaus and plains that are interested by meandering rivers and dotted with hills, ravines, one – third of the state is forested, offering an exciting panorama of wildlife. In its National Parks, one can spot the elusive tiger, bison and a wide variety of deer and antelope.

The cultural heritage of Madhya Pradesh is ancient and chequered. Innumerable monuments, exquisitely carved temples, stupas, forts and palaces are reminders of a glorious past. Moments of valour and glory, love and passing have been arrested in them by the sensitive shisels of master craftsman.

Come to Madhya Pradesh and enjoy the hospitality that comes from the heart!
