Serene Pachmarhi

Situated at a mounting height, Pachmarhi, popularly known as 'Satpura ki Rani' (Queen of Satpura) sits beautifully amidst the Satpura range. This attractive town was snuggled in the hills and forests until it was discovered by Captain James Forsyth in 1857. It is one of the most popular destinations in Madhya Pradesh and is a treasure trove of rich history and nature's bounty. The 'Pandavas Caves' in the town is a popular attraction which has a fascinating tale. The legend has it that these caves were built by the Pandavas who lived here along with their wife Draupadi during their exile. 

Another point of interest is the stone formed JataShankar cave that resembles the hundred-headed divine snake Seshnag. As per folklore, it is where Lord Shiva had supposed to have hidden from the Demon Bhasmasur. The rocks of this sacred cave looks like the tangled hair of Lord Shiva, hence it is named Jata Shankar.

From spiritual sites, gushing waterfalls to panoramic vantage points, Pachmarhi has something for everyone. Besides scenic beauty, you can enjoy adventure activities like jeep safari in Satpura tiger reserve and para-motoring in the heart of Pachmarhi to add more thrill to your trip. If old architectures interests you then Christ Church, a true blue building from the colonial era cannot be missed upon! The best time to travel to Pachmarhi and see around beautiful places is during monsoon and winter as the beauty of the hill station multiplies a thousand folds.
