As compared to Mahadeo, this one is just average. But decent in its own right. You may like steep edges of the mountains on both sides.

Jata Shankar, a cave temple of Lord Shiva is a must go place for Hindus. The temple has religious significance. The caves, rock formation, Shivling, the pond and the ambiance makes you feel you are in the presence of the god himself.

The trek to the temple... More

It is a wonderful and a must visit location in Pachmarhi. You need to walk down the valley for this. But the experience is good. It's better if you have a guide with you who will explain you about the place and also show naturally created Gods in the mountains. The Jatashankar point itself is a very nice natural place... More

Me and my girlfriend have been travelling around Asia for close to 1 year now so we are a little tired of temples and shrines etc but this place is well worth a visit even just for the walk there. You are taken through a stunning gorge which is pretty clean by Indian standards and it is a great short... More

There are lot of stairs to go down to but they are not too steep, so if you have any issue, please take a note. 2. Check the weather before going there, if its raining steps might trouble you.
