Panna is an Indian city located in the state of Madhya Pradesh and is known famous for its diamond mines. Panna diamonds, though not world class in quality and clarity, are famously auctioned off by the District Magistrate at the end of each month.
The city also holds a lot of religious importance for the Hindus. It was here that Mahamati Prannath preached the message of self awakening and also unfurled the flag of Jagani. It is believed that the Mahamati decided to take his Samadhi in Panna after having spent eleven years here along with his disciples.
Tourist places in and around Panna

A Home to the Tigers
The Panna National Park is a major attraction of Panna tourism especially because this wildlife reserve is one among the very few national parks where tigers can be found. The Park is at an easy distance from Khaujorao, and there are plenty of resorts and hotels for night stay.
