This is a rock that feels very delicately balanced. It feels as if it will roll any moment but its somehow very firm. With some trick you can get a photo as if you're lifting the rock. its just near mandan mahal and worth your 10 Mins.

The Balancing Rocks in Jabalpur is situated in the hilly area and very near to Madan Mahal Fort.The approach to the same from NH-6 near Madan Mahal Square is via a very narrow single track road.It is wonder to behold a huge chunk of rock (probably granitic) balancing on its tip on the underlying rock of the same formation and...

Balance rock is an awesome place to visit in the city for its self made natural miraculous look. actually, two rocks are there, the above one is placed on the lower one on a tip and even it moves, shakes but never fell down. The great balance between both of these rocks makes them outstanding to watch.

Yes, it must be a horizontal oval shaped rock weighing at least 2 / 3 tons. It has very little contact with another rock acting as pivot. It is on the verge of falling, but not falling down. One can drop near Madan Mahal bus stop and chose to take auto rikshaw to climb the mountain. The first point is... More

One of the great and unexplainable phenomenon of nature wherein a huge rock balances at one point on a small rock for years. Upon hearing about the tourist spot, I was quite excited and thought that it will be in a park or something, however to my utter surprise, it is located in the middle of city surrounded by garbage...

Aha! You will smile definitely once you really see this. The place unfortunately is dirty, don't know why, but this is some work done by Nature. I really loved it and enjoyed the work thoroughly.

Many people are not aware of this, but this one is a must try. visit this place.you will find much dust/dirt/garbage around but even then it is worth to watch and visit such place where a big big rock is lying with point contact on a small rock. google the picture and site you will love it.take your kids there.

While taking enjoyment of boating in river Narmada at Bheraghat around marble rocks, we come across to see this unique rock which moves even if a small bird sits at this rock. They are so balanced that they are since ages undisturbed Seeing this is an amazing experience.

Actually, it is a huge piece of rock strangely balanced at quite an altitude. But very close to this is the Rani Durgavati Mahal at about 200 steps containing an old fort, Mahadev mandir & a mosque.
