Anuppur , Madhya Pradesh

Amarkantak is a town in the newly created district of Annupur in Madhya Pradesh. Located in the Maikal range 1067 feet above sea level, it is a town of great mythological importance. A great many stories have been woven around this place about Lord Shiva and his daughter Narmada. No wonder the river itself originated from this very town and there are about 12 temples in this place dedicated solely to it. Primarily a religious destination for quite some obvious reasons, The Narmada temple built around the source of the river is the most important one. Also important are the Machendranath and patleshwar temples which have been declared as a protected site. These are all worth a visit for their history as well as grandeur. There is a great throng of devotees that come to Amarantak every year to pay their respects. Besides the religious factor, this town is an ideal temperate getaway. With moderate climate all through the year and picturesque surroundings all around, this is a place to be visited by all. It is being actively developed as a hill station and a visit is highly recommended. If you want an interesting forest trek head to Bhrigumandal which is 3 km away. To be overpowered with scenic beauty head to the Kapildhara and Dudhdhara waterfall. A home for the most medicinal plants, the flora of this region will completely astonish you. If there is anything to be healed , the secrets surely lie in the vast collection of medicinal plants sported by these lush forests. Annupur is the nearest railway station to reach this town. And reach you should. To experience perfect blend of peace and tradition in the perfect weather conditions visit Amarkantak.
