Exploring MP is like discovering a historic treasure, buried under the dust of historical landmarks, Ayurvedic forests, traditional handloom, and extensive national parks. From Khajuraho’s 10th-century temples to 800 sculptures of Kandariya Mahadeva, each of these marvels have a story to tell. In fact, some of the inscriptions on ancient landmarks will take you by surprise. Not only, do they depict an ultra-liberal abode but also, the extraordinary craftsmanship of its time.

Adventure seekers traverse into the tribal zones of Chhattisgarh, explore Ujjain, Omkareshwar, and take a cool dip in the Narmada River. Both Ujjain and Omkareshwar are Jyotirlingas which make them a famous tourist spot. At Omkareshwar, the Ghat, sums up life and death, in one frame. On one end is the fiery fire of burning dead, while on the other corner, a newly wedded couple, seeking blessings for their new life. An emotional blend of the beginning of the end!
