Balancing Rocks Overview

Ranked 16 of 21 sightseeing in Jabalpur
Balancing Rocks is situated at the base of Madan Mahal Fort, 6 km from Jabalpur, near Shailparna. Though Jabalpur is known more for the famous Marble Rocks, there are many other interesting facts including the unique topography of this place. Jabalpur is covered by low and rocky barren hillocks, mostly formed after a volcanic eruption that must have occurred millions of years ago.
Balancing rock is an independent rock precariously balancing over another rock. The upper rock balances on the base of the lower rock; the area where the two rocks come in contact with each other is about 6 sq in. This balancing rock has sustained a powerful earthquake of 6.2 on the Richter scale and has not fallen apart.
Many visitors come to visit this unique sight. The physics of these rocks has also attracted a lot of geologists who keep visiting this place.
One can walk further up to the Madan Mahal Fort and take a look around or climb up the watch tower in the fort complex to get extensive views of the other rocky formations found around.
Vehicles are easily available to this tourist spot from Jabalpur.

It's huge!

It amazes me sometimes the things nature does and the things it creates and this place is an epitome of such amazement. This place is worth visiting once. Around this there's a temple and Rani Durgavati University.
