About Marble Rocks, Jabalpur
On its course, River Narmada cuts a narrow gorge and forms marble rocks on either side, which rise to a height of 100 ft or so. It is an awesome place and keeps you mystified and breathless with its beauty and serene surroundings. A boat ride through these marble rocks is sure to give you one of the best experiences in life. It was said that once these two mountains of marble rocks were so close together that monkeys could easily jump from one mountain to the other. But with time, these mountains drifted apart and now there is a width of 3 km between the two mountains. The point where the two mountains are closest to each other is called ‘Bandar Kundee’.
The boatman accompanying you will provide a lot of stories and legends connected with the rock formation. He makes your ride a memorable one with lots of wits and funny jokes. Although these marbles are mainly white in colour, there are also marbles that are blue, brown and black in colour. A ride through the river in a moonlight night is sure to take your breath away with excitement. At night these marbles glitter like diamonds in the silvery light of the moon. This, accompanied with the soft blabbering of the boatman in the still night and the water of the river flowing without a murmur, is an experience that words cannot express. It is only to be experienced.
The boatman also shows you many rock formations that resemble the foot of an elephant, horns of a cow and so on. During the day time the marble glistens brightly offering a treat to the eyes. The water of the River Narmada is very deep at places and after flowing in total silence for a long way, it falls down as Dhuandhar Falls.

Nice place to enjoy your holiday. With a beautiful view of the marble rocks,the room service is satisfactory. The small kitchen with limited capabilities have smiling n helpful staff always trying to please the customers. Putting up in an AC tent with nice view ..is a blissful experience
Amazing views, fast and courteous service and good Indian food. The place can do with a better ambience but then it's a state tourism property so can't expect everything!
Very good quality of food....all freshly prepared.... served hot....so tasty... I liked the restaurant... will love to visit again..
It is the worst resort amongst all the MP tourism hotels. Even if you wish to stay there, DO NOT BOOK THE ROOM ONLINE. They cheat you by charging 1000 rs. more. If you personally book your room on visiting the hotel, MP tourism officially gives 15% discount which these staff people didn't give us! They really cheat you in every way possible! View of the river from the hotel is pretty. But, their swimming pool is very dirty. They never change the water, just filter it. And trust me you would not even like to step your foot into that dirty water. I was really disappointed with the hotel. Room's A.c also didn't work properly, it took 4-5 hours to cool the room. Food was good though. The resort is not worth it as per their tariff.
Amazing view of marble rock and river. Great place to unwind.
