You will experience diversity, rich cultural heritage, vivacity, solitude and natural splendour at Amarkantak, a tourist's paradise in every sense. It has something to offer for everyone.
Amarkantak, literally meaning "The one with the Voice of God", is not only a religious centre but also a place with an abundance of natural beauty. It is famous as a source of two rivers, the Sone and the Narmada and also is a meeting spot of the Satpuras and the Vindhyas. It has several beautiful monuments and temples which reflects the glorious past, as each of them has an interesting story attached to them. The city is blessed with picture perfect scenic landscape, verdant forests, a fresh healing air, glittering streams, grassy hills and warm people. Some of the major attractions include Sonmuda and Bhrigu Ka Mandal.

At Amarkantak, you can follow the river that the adivasis of this region call ‘Ma Rewa’, from her divine source to her first tentative steps down the green sal woods, red earth and black basalt rocks, to her ebullient leaps down to the plains. Amarkantak is really a hamlet; most of it lies on one main road, which takes in a market with a few dhabas and ashrams, and the Narmada Temple complex. If in a hurry, a day is enough to cover all main sights by car or jeep. Amarkantak is also the place to realise that the tribal idyll described by websites is a fissured one. The tribals — repositories of forest-based knowledge — are now construction labourers, mine workers, taxi drivers and waiters. The forests, in the words of a local, are “hollow”. And the Narmada is making her joyous way forward to face 30 big dams, 135 medium dams and 3,000 small dams on herself and her tributaries.

Antiquity is an apposite word in discussing Amarkantak. Geologically, these mountains are much older than the Himalaya and the Narmada is said to be 150 million years older than the Ganga. Among the humanmade structures, the Narmada Temple, made by the Bhonsle kings of Nagpur, dates to the 18th century. Nearby, a group of 10th century temple remains called Karna Matha temples stand with weathered but towering shikharas, apparently built by the Kalchuri Dynasty of Jabalpur. Not in use anymore, these are protected by the ASI.
