Vinod, Madhya Pradesh Travel Expert

Madhya Pradesh means The Middle Region, and rightly so. Carrying the moniker the Heart of India, this state is located in Central India and is the second largest state by area in the country. Till date, Madhya Pradesh has been the road less travelled and has been an elusive region on the travel maps of tourists in India.

A trip to Madhya Pradesh can satiate anyone’s thirst for cultural discovery and immersion in heritage. Visit the Rajwada Palace in Indore, a beautiful historic palace which was built in 1766 and is a heavenly blend of Maratha and Mughal architectural styles. The medieval Hindu and Jain temples famous for their erotic sculptures in the town of Khajurahu will prove to anyone that India truly is the land of the Kamasutra. It makes you wonder how conservative the Indian society has turned over the centuries. Explore the Jama Masjid in Bhopal which shares its name with the prominent mosque in New Delhi, however this one in is a small and beautiful mosque with an impressive structure.
