Located next to Rani Durgawati Fort, balancing rock makes one think deep about natural occurrance which defies all laws of gravity..Strangely the area is neither developed nor maintained inspite of regular flow of tourist.

The problem with this is that... how long can you look and feel amazed at a balancing rock! It looks nice... it is really big and only a very small patch actually makes contact with the surface below. But thats it. Note: Avoid visiting this place after dark.

Balancing rock is created by the eroded volcanic rock formations. The rock balances on a huge base rock by just touching it. Its a point contact & the contact area is not even 1% of the size of upper rock. It is amazing to note that the balance rock survived an earthquake of 6.5 magnitude & it is impossible to... More

Being a tourism place it should have some shops restaurants nearby or at least any park seats basic things but this place is just like an external area of a jungle having bushes and grass. maintanance is must. Otherwise this was a god's miracle that balance such rocks from lots of years.
