  • Must visit for those interested in Archeology. Located closer to Sanchi. Not much written about it and no details also. Less crowded.

  • Worth visiting. It's a great historic site having rocks from pre-dinosaur era.

  • Amazing in scenic beauty. Good for photography, picnics or school/college tours. Small museum which shows ancient monuments. It's in open environment. Present during early monsoon season. But during this season it's not much safe as rocks become slippery.

  • You are a history person? Please visit this place. Get a camera and your gps on and live one of the oldest beautiful place in India.

  • Nice place to spend ur holiday. Good for both family and friends. Try to stay here till sun set, u'll be amazed with the view from the top. Parking is good and is free and safe. No entry fee. Very nice local villagers.
