Jabalpur is well known for its rocky and barren hillocks, which are mostly formed by volcanic eruptions that have taken place millions of years ago. Balancing Rocks is such an example, which attracts tourists and geologists from all over India and the world with its unique rock formation. It is considered as one of the wonders here, which no science can explain.
It is often said that nature is the greatest architect of all and the Balancing Rocks prove it to be absolutely true. The works of Nature cannot be compared with any of the engineering skills of man. It makes you speechless and spellbound with its perfection and skill.
Tourists who visit MadanMahal Fort also visit the balancing Rocks and marvel at it. It is found at the base of the fort and attracts all visitors with its strange form of balancing.
Here one rock is balanced on top of another and the point of contact between the two rocks is just about 6 sq inches. As you watch the rocks, you may feel that it may fall in a few seconds, but it is not so. How it balances on the base rock is still a wonder for the scientists and geologists.
No external force is able to disturb this balance may it be wind, storm, rain or earthquake or mechanical force. It has even withstood an earthquake of 6.2 on the Richter scale. A visit to this place makes you wonder what all surprises Nature has in store for you.
