Balancing Rocks, Jabalpur

2.3
#3 of 6 in Parks in Jabalpur
Marvel at Balancing Rocks on a top of a rocky hill, a famous tourist spot near the base of a historic fort. See an eroded volcanic rock balancing on a huge boulder and enjoy a panoramic view of the ancient Jabalpur town and the surrounding countryside. Looking like a giant potato under a tree and amidst peculiar rock formations, the rock balanced through an earthquake measuring 6.1 on the Richter scale in 1997 so it is safe. Located on a narrow road on a way to the temple and surrounded by picturesque low, rocky and barren hillocks, the site provides a good and relatively quick photo opportunity.

    The balancing rock is not as large as the one at Mahabalipuram but amazing none the less. Worth a stop over. It is on the way to the Fort anyway so one doesn't have to make a special trip for this one...  more »
