About Rewa Tourism

Located in the state of Madhya Pradesh, Rewa covers an area of around 6,240.06 sq km. In addition, it is divided into four parts, viz. Kymore Pahar, Binjh Pahar, Rewa Plateau and Lower-Northern Plain.On the north and east, the district is bounded by the state of Uttar Pradesh. The district on the south is surrounded by Sidhi District, while on the west lies Amarpatan and Raghurajnagar tahsils of Satna District. The destination resembles an isosceles triangle in its shape with its two longer arms extending in the east direction towards Mauganj, while the base of the triangle lies along the border of Satna District. 

Rewa District has derived its name from its district headquarters, which is Rewa town. Originally, Rewa is another name for River Narmada. According to history, it is said that in the 3rd century BC, the territories which are now the part of this district, were under the reign of the Maurya Dynasty. The present Rewa district came into existence in 1950. 

Besides its rich history, Rewa is also known for its white tigers as the first white tiger was caught in this district. In addition to hiking through the dense tiger reserve, tourists can also explore several interesting places. These include the Rewa Fort, Baghael Museum, Royal Museum, Pili Kothi and Govindgarh Palace. The other points of interest include the Shilpi Plaza, Shiva Temple, Rani Talab and APS University Stadium. Travellers can also visit Bansagar Dam and the many waterfalls along with the Ranipur Sanctuary in the areas surrounding Rewa. 

With the availability of flights, buses and trains, travelling to Rewa is not difficult. Those travelling by air, can board flights to the nearest airport-Khajuraho Airport. In addition, tourists travelling from international destinations can board flights to Jabalpur Airport.Tourists can also head towards the destination by trains, which are served by Rewa Railway Station, located at a distance of 5.8 km from Rewa.

"Birthplace of the exotic white tiger" new review

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 3 days ago
Rewa always reminds of the song 'Ma Rewa' by Indian Ocean. It's also the hometown of Mohan, the first white tiger this planet ever saw. Some place you must definitely visit in Rewa are the Baghel Museum which is home to some of the finest relics from the last 200 centuries, the White Tiger Zoo, and my favourite - Govindgarh fort with it's enchanting lake view.
One of the best experiences I had at this sleepy little town last month is the visit to the Baghel Museum which stands as a living testimony to the legacy of Baghels.

"Home of White Tiger" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 6 days ago
Rewa is also known as the birthplace of the white tiger species known as the Bengal tiger. The world's first white tiger safari is located in Rawa near Govindgarh palace. It is a small and quaint town but rich with history especially with Rani Talab and Baghel Museum and Govindgarh Palace. You will really jog into history when you visit the baghel museum where all the belongings of the kings were preserved with the display of the weapons that were used in war and hunting as well.

"Historic city crumbling under the weight of negligence" new review

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Borrowing its name from Narmada river's other alias, Rewa is a historic town with crumbling remains of a fort, museum, other heritage buildings and a rich legacy.

The main attractions are the remains of the fort, of which nothing much is left to see. The fort ramparts are converted into a shopping complex but the entrance gate still stands impressive. The fort also houses the Baghela Museum where several historic artifacts belonging to the rulers of the erstwhile princely state of Rewa are up for display along with entire history and lineage of Mohan, the first wild white tiger sighted in the forests of Rewa. While it's clear that the town has lot of stories to tell, there isn't enough tourism infrastructure yet to aid the traveller in understanding its history. You're on your own here. Apart from these, another attraction is the Rani Talab that is a large water well with few temples along its banks. Good for a pleasant evening walk.

Rewa, is best visited by road from Satna, closest major railhead.

"Visit Rewa for its heritage and ruins" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Rewa is one of the towns in Madhya Pradesh that grows on you. The town seems noisy and dusty like any other town, but it is filled with culture, heritage and ruins. There is the local pond here, filled with temples - Rani Talao. While locals come here for boating, it's beautiful during sunrise and sunset. You could even try some night photography. There are stories and legends and the locals will tell you if you are interested. There is an old museum here as well, a treasure trove of royal collection. Its one of the best guided Tours that I have ever had although you cannot take photographs and it can be maintained better.

My favourite destination however is the Gobindgarh fort. The ruins speak to you. Apparently the Maharaja spotted the first white tiger here many years ago. It is slightly on the outskirts of the city, facing the lake and it is one of the best places to go if you love photographing ruins, monuments and pillars.

"A Trip to Rewa" new review

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
I had been to Rewa by road in the month of October 2016. Rewa is a must-visit attraction in the tourism circuit of Madhya Pradesh. The must-visit attractions around Rewa include the Purwa Falls, Rewa Fort and Chachai Falls. The Purwa falls is located 32 kilometers from Rewa on State Highway 9. Travelling by a cab is the best option to reach this natural wonder. The Rewa Fort is just located 3 kilometers from Rewa through Jail Road. One can easily reach this majestic place through the mode of local transportation too. Chachai Falls is located just 37 kilometers from the central part of Rewa. The Rewa Fort is basically a city museum containing antique items. The Chachai waterfalls is a gorgeous waterfall to watch with it endowed by infinite beauty.

"A nice place to visit"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Apr 25, 2016
Small city to visit. Don't have much places to go. People can visit Rewa fort here it is a small fort with river flowing behind it. There is a famous Mahamritunjay Temple dedicated to Lord Shiv in the fort. The fort also have a good museum. Beside fort there are various temples in the city. One can visit peeli kothi here.

There are various beautiful waterfalls near the city within the distance of around 50 to 60 KM. Keoti falls and Dhuandhar falls are the both beautiful falls which one could plan to visit. There is also a tiger safari near the city which can be visited if one is a wildlife lover. Overall don't expect much as it is a small city. But still a good option as there are many places nearby to visit.
