The Time-Turner Series || Secrets of Surreal Panchmarhi, Madhya Pradesh (The Heart of Incredible India)

 Me at Pandav Gufa When I look back at the two days I spent in Panchmarhi in 2009, I think of rolling gentle hills with sparkly green grass and shimmery, quiet lakes and lots of interesting spots to visit. For all of these reasons and more, Panchmarhi deserves a Time-Turner post of its own.     Clean, winding roads lined with tall trees The Time-Turner series is my opportunity to pen down the lingering memories and impressions of a place I have visited. It helps me relive the experience a bit and also reflect upon the aspects of the place that stood out the most to me. For more Time-Turner posts, follow this link: The Time-Turner Series.    Trishuls at Bade Mahadev I remember taking a local train from Jabalpur to pipariya, which is close to Panchmarhi, and travelling in a general coach, talking to locals on the way. And then from Pipariya, I took a Jeep to Panchmarhi. The hotel that I had booked in Panchmarhi wasn't anything to write home about, so I won't talk about that, but there's a lot of other things that I remember.    Me at the badi gufa at Reechch Garh  Panchmarhi is a small hill station located in Madhya Pradesh. Unlike the popular Hill stations of North, this is a quiet place where you can stay for 3-4 days, complete the sight seeing and relax. I would recommend anyone who loves traveling to visit Panchmarhi at least once and cherish the closeness to nature.   Panchmarhi Jheel One of the most memorable sights of Panchmarhi was the Panchmarhi Jheel. This little lake is located a few kilometers away from the Panchmarhi main town. We hired a Jeep to get there. Unlike the other popular lakes, this lake is completely uncommercialized. The only commercial activity being the selling of tickets for boat ride. The waters are silvery. We decided to take the road less traveled and went for a walk around the lake instead of taking the boat ride.   Reechch Garh At the outskirts of Panchmarhi, you can find huge rocks that hide big and small caves. This place is commonly known as Reechch Garh and local folk tales associate it with Jamwanth, the legendary reechch who joined forces with Lord Ram against Ravan. In recent past, it is supposed to have been the home of many wild animals, including black bear. There are two main caves. One is gigantic and the other so narrow that you almost need to crawl through it.  Pandav Gufa Pandavs seem to have walked all across India during their 13 years exile. All states have pandav gufas or temples constructed by them. The gufa at panchmarhi is spectacular. The massive igneous rock has been cut and carved beautifully.  Pandav Gufa There are many other spectacular places like Gupt Mahadev, Bade Mahadev, Chauragarh Temple, Dhoopgarh, Jatashankar Caves etc. Panchmarhi overall is a nice place to visit, and I hope it has been able to preserve its pristine grasslands and clean waterbodies over all these years. It sure would be a tragedy otherwise.
