Out edge of the city of Jabalpur. In front of the Rani Durgawati fort. Interesting site here as you can see how strangely the rock is balancing. What if you climb up or even briefly push? Does it stay? Probably not😅 It's such a unique view.

The spot is very close to the road and there is probably only one outcrop left showing a great deal of centre of gravity. Other than stopping for a few minutes, this spot does not have any other attraction Even shrubs have grown around it and have been quite neglected. Close to it over a hill top is Madan Mahal...

If you are from Hyderabad or anywhere in Telangana, you may wonder what the big fuss is about, as these kind of rock formations are not unusual in those areas.

Spend at least 5-10 minutes to watch this place.Balance of rocks is amazing and wondering. But this place is not well maintained. Little bit dirty and untidy. But, still it is one of the great wonder of nature.

As their are only two such balancing rock in India. So this is to be included. Though this place is not well maintained and on the way to Madan Mahal one can see it on vehicle also but I suggest take out 5 min of time. It makes you wondering how could it have survived the earthquakes.

This place is quite good. Butbthe science behind the balance can't be told by anyone. But next to ot there's a fort which the local people will say you not to go because of any unknown threat or unknown superpower

Its in madan mahal area.There is nothing much to do there and takes about 5 mins to see..The rock structure as such is nice surrounded by trees..You can have some nice pics here.. If you in nearby area or have time in hand do visit it.But can be skipped by people who are short of time..
