Welcome to Madhya Pradesh
 
Madhya Pradesh
 

Madhya Pradesh is called the Heart of India because of its location in the centre of the country. It has been home to the cultural heritage of Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism etc. Innumerable monuments, exquisitely carved temples, stupas, forts & palaces are dotted all over the State.

The natural beauty of Madhya Pradesh is equally varied. Consisting largely of a plateau streaked with the hill ranges of the Vindhyas and the Satpuras, the State has everything. The hills give rise to the main river system - Narmada and the Tapti, running from east to west, and the Chambal, Sone, Betwa, Mahanadi west to east. Spectacular mountain ranges, meandering rivers dotted with hills and lakes and miles and miles of dense forests offering a unique and exciting panorama of wildlife in sylvan surroundings.

One third of the state is forested and offers a unique and exciting panorama of wildlife. In the National Parks of Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Shivpuri and many others one has the rare opportunity to see the tiger, the bison and a wide variety of deer and antelope in sylvan surroundings.

World heritage sites

Although the modern state of Madhya Pradsh came into being in 1956, its cultural heritage is ancient and chequered. Innumerable monuments, exquisitely carved temples, stupas, forts and palaces on hilltops, raise in the visitors mind visions of empires and kingdoms, of the great warriors and builders, poets and musicians, saints and philosophers; of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Islam. India's immoral poet-dramatist Kalidasa and the great musician of the Mughal court, Tansen, were from Madhya Pradesh.

Several cities in Madhya Pradesh are extraordinary for their architecture and or scenic beauty.

Four sites in Madhya Pradesh have been declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO:

* The Khajuraho Group of Monuments (1986)
* The Devi Jagadambi temple (1986)
* Buddhist Monuments at Sanchi (1989)
* The Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka (2003)
