Balancing Rocks, Jabalpur

Home » Destinations » Jabalpur » Attractions » Balancing Rocks

Balancing Rocks in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, is a sheer geological marvel in the true sense. Located on the way to the Madan Mahal Fort which was built by Raja Madan Singh, a Gond ruler, Balancing Rocks is a rocky formation of uneven rocks, which is said to be created by volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago. The archeologist and geologist fail to sight exact reason stating how these rocks could stay unmoved for so many years.

However, they assume that it might be their weight and positioning along with the gravitational pull that has allowed these rocks to even withstand an earthquake that rocked Jabalpur in 1997. Balancing rocks can be seen from the top of the Madan Mahal Fort along with a panoramic view of the whole city. A sheer delight for geologists, a trip to Jabalpur is incomplete without visiting the famous Balancing Rocks.
