“Great spot but no facilities”
Review of Markanda

Ranked #33 of 83 things to do in Nagpur
Attraction details
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Markanda is one of many hidden jewels in Central Inida but due to govt. apathy there is lack of proper maintenance and facilities at these spots. Our govt. needs to do more to promote Markanda and other historical places of Central Inida and offer basic amenities to tourists.

Markanda is a must on the pilgrim's itinerary. Situated on the bank of the Vainganga river this town is said to have derived its name from the sage Markandeya who lived and worshipped here. It has an undoubtedly spiritual character with no less than 24 temples in its vicinity, including the Markanda temple. The temples reflect the architectural style of Khajuraho, although no inscriptions exist to indicate their exact age..
