Tribal Art

The two main groups of Central India are the Baigas and the Gonds. Very few people are aware of the fact that the Baigas are the National Tribe of India and many anthropologists consider them to be the original inhabitants of this land.

The Baiga culture for the most part has remained unchanged over the years, and the vast majority of them still eke out an existence from the dwindling forest resources still accessible to them. Although they intrinsically understand the importance of maintaining a balance from within the forest ecosystem, they are unduly persecuted by officialdom.

Tribal Art

The Baigas worship nature and revere the tiger as their deity. They have a wonderful saying that when they walk alone in the forest they feel safe only when they walk with the tiger. Their dance form and traditional dress may be witnessed during important events on their nature centric calendar.

The Gonds on the other hand are more assimilated into mainstream society. They have adapted their appearance to mimic the wider populace. However, they still preserve some of their traditional cultural practises and their paintings are witnessing a resurgence in the metropolitan art scene.

Relive the life of a Tribal Ruler
Kawardha Palace is one of the most beautiful palaces of central India, located approximately 130kms from Raipur in Chhattisgarh. The 20th century Kawardha Palace was designed and built by Maharaja Dharamraj Singh between the period 1936-39 AD, using Italian marble and stone. Set amidst 11 acres of lush green landscaped gardens, Kawardha Palace is a tranquil and isolated retreat, surrounded by the verdant Maikal hill ranges.

The architectural design of the Palace is an interesting blend of Italian, Mughal and Colonial Styles. The interiors of the Palace are beautifully appointed with grand marble staircases, elegant sweeping verandas and high-ceilinged guestrooms which have been traditionally decorated and retain all their original furnishings.

Rowing through marble rocks that rise 100ft
Situated on the banks of the Narmada– Bhedaghat – a small town in the Jabalpur district of Madhya Pradesh has much more to offer than one can think of. Blessed by the holy river, Bhedaghat is one of the major tourist attractions of the state which is the heart of ‘Incredible India’ Mostly famous for its view of the Dhuandhar waterfalls passing through the Marble rocks on a moonlit night, and the Chaunsath Yogini temple.

Having carved a natural path over the years through soft marble rock, the river flows peacefully across the gorge and eventually tumbles into the powerful Dhuandhar Falls, an apt name for the hazy illusion created by the sheer force of the water.

The Marble Rocks are a gorge along part of the Narmada River’s 1,077 km (669.2 mi) path through Madhya Pradesh. There is a cable car to take visitors across the gorge, row boats for guided tours of the river downstream of the falls and many small shops filled with crafts made from the local materials.

The temple is one of the four major extant temples containing carvings of sixty four yogini, female yoga mystics. It was built in the 10th century under the Kalachuri empire. It commands a view of the whole area around and of the river flowing through the marble rocks.

The Temple Town at the source of the River Narmada
This Region was controlled by the Chelia Dynasty, followed in the 10th Century by the Kalchuri Dynasty and subsequently by the Baghelas in the 15th Century and is famous for the Kapildhara Temple of the Kalchuri Dynasty, the Narmada Kund from where the river Narmada originates and a number of Ashrams.

Legend has it that Lord Shiva blessed Narmada with unique purifying powers. Whereas to purify himself, a devotee requires taking one dip in the Holy Ganga, seven days’ prayers on the banks of Yamuna and three days prayers on the banks of Saraswati, the mere sight of Narmada is enough.

Amarkantak is located at an elevation of on the upper reaches of the densely forested Maikal Range which connects the Vindhya and the Satpura Ranges. The River Narmada flows through the Rift Valley between these two hill ranges.
