Updated: Jul 14

Tourist spot Bhedaghat's most famous sights are the Dhuandhar Falls, Marble Rocks, and the Chaunsath Yogini temple. 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 Kalachuris. It commands a view of the whole area around and of the river flowing through the marble rocks.

Its major attraction is a waterfall known as Dhuandhar, which looks like smoke coming out of the river and therefore it got its name as "Dhuan(smoke)-dhar(flow of water)". Another major attraction is 'Bandar Kodini', when one travels in between the marble rocks in a boat, the mountains at both the sides at one point come so close that the monkeys are able to jump across them, hence the name "Bandar Kodini".

Bhedaghat is famous for its jumpers.
