Jabalpur is a small city in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. It is an ancient city on the shores of the holy river of Narmada. My friend Akshata and I decided to travel to this city last December as part of our yearly travels. Since we had just one day in the city, we hired a taxi for a day which costed us INR 1800 for 2 people.
The first stop was at the Balancing Rock. It is a rock formation where an oval rock is sitting on top of another rock. No entrance fee require.
The second stop was to Rani Durgawati Fort. This Fort was used as a watch tower by armed forces of Durgawati. No entrance fee required.
The third stop was at Dhuandhar Falls. It is a spectacular waterfalls. No entrance fee required.
The fourth stop was at Marble Rocks or Bhedaghat. The boat ride here is a must. The cost of the boat ride by MP Tourism is INR 50. But the boat ride ends a certain point. So an additional INR 50 per person will take you to a further point till the waterfalls.
The last point was at a Jain temple. It again has about 300 steps to reach to the top. No entrance fee required.
I think one day was sufficient to explore Jabalpur. But it depends on each one if they wish to cover all in one or more days.
