Been travelling through MP seeing many sights. Was thoroughly disappointed and disgusted with this place. It’s filthy, with a very rude and unpleasant pandit.

Bade Mahadev temple is situated on a hill approximately 11 kilometers from Pachmarhi. You can take a shared gypsy to reach there. Gypsy people charge 50 Rs for one way travel. No ticket is required. Parwati gufa & gupt mahadev is also nearby.

10 km from city but worth it to drive. Drive yourself if you an expert otherwise take local jeep. Drive through the hilly narrow roads. Adventurous. Breathtaking when you reach there. Temple in cave with natural wate
