The Narmada River flows west of Jabalpur, 14 miles to the sheer cliffs made of marble at Bhedaghat, through an impressive gorge. It narrows and drops dramatically over the great Dhuandar Falls, which are commonly called the "Smoke Cascade." Interesting rock formations are a ledge called the Monkey's leap and the Elephant's Foot.

Marble Rocks

The Marble Rocks are a gorge on the Narmada River in central India where the river narrows to a width of 10 meters and carves through a large area of white marble, creating a beautiful gorge of about 3 km in length. The Marble Rocks are located near the city of Jabalpur in Jabalpur District of Madhya Pradesh state, and are a popular Indian tourist destination. The local marble is mined and carved into various figures and transported all over India. [2]

 

Just 21 km west of Jabalpur, is a small village called Bhedaghat. The village is world famous for splendid Marble Rocks on the banks of Narmada River. Covered with dark volcanic seams of green and black, they tower to almost 100 ft above the soft flowing Narmada on either side. They are fabulous to look at during the daytime when sun sparkles on the pure white surfaces of these rocks. During the night as well, they give you a mesmerizing view under the moonlit skies. The Marble Rocks have been considered as one of the thousand places that you should see before you die. The best way to enjoy the sheer charm of these rocks is by taking a boat ride in Narmada. [3]
