Bhedaghat, 25 kms from Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh is famous for its marble rocks.
The River Narmada is the only river in India that flows in a rift valley. The Narmada flows accumulating waters through the central part of India. At Jabalpur, passing through the Marble Rocks, it enters the Narmada valley between the Vindhya and Satpura ranges and cascades powerfully at Bhedaghat.
It is popularly called Dhuandhar or Dhuadhar (translation, smoke cascade). While enjoying the Dhuandhar Falls, I recalled the awe I felt upon seeing the Niagara Falls.
The Narmada is a sacred river for many people in India. From the Dhuandhar Falls, the Narmada river flows into a ravine of marble rocks. The natural topography over there is delightful.
What is unique about Bhedaghat is that just a few kilometers away from these powerful Dhuandhar Falls, the Narmada flows serenely. I covered the distance by foot between these two spots in less than an hour.
