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.

In the middle of congested city, bad approach road, area not maintained properly, stink of human waste. All these factors offset the beauty of this natural wonder.

Had a hard time to locate this. It is nothing extra ordinary. It is not a balancing rock at all. The base and the hanging rock are the same rock shaped in that way.

The balancing rocks are amazing to watch and photographed but the place around it is not at all well maintained.It's almost a neglected area with tourists occasionally visiting it.It is on the way to Madan Mahal Fort.

Really a natures wonder to be watched. During earthquake also this rock did not fall. Really natures wonder. The greatest pity is that the place is not maintained and has no cleanliness. As anew person you cannot identify this spot.

Among the several attractions in Jabalpur, eroded volcanic rock formations called as Balancing Rock of Jabalpur. Amazingly this rock survived even in earthquake of mag 6.5. It is said that it`s impossible to disturb their balance,
