The Balancing Rocks in Jabalpur is situated in the hilly area and near to Madan Mahal Fort. It can be missed. It is nothing but an oval shaped rock balancing on another rock.

It is a rare sight. An oval shaped rock is balancing on a rock with a small area of contact, as can be seen in the picture. One feels that one can give a push to the oval shaped rock and it will loose balance and fall down. So many travelers have tried it and failed. It is an unusual... More

If you can imagine well, the photo given in this site is what it is. A rock precariously balancing on another rock.

Average spot. One can check out how the rock is staying without any support. It balances itself so nicely. One can click photos and visit nearby Durgamati Fort, nothing else.

This huge egg shaped boulder seems to be perfectly happy to sit on a foot wide contact with its base. It inspires awe to stand under it, and while its reassuring to know that a Richter 6.5 was unable to dislodge it, its still unnerving to see this marvel of nature right in the middle of a trading town.

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.

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...
