The marble artistry of Bhedaghat

The quaint town of Bhedaghat in Jabalpur district is popular with tourists for its misty Dhuandhar fall and colossal marble rocks. Another thing that equally attracts the tourists from all over the world is the incredible craft of marble sculpting that this place has to offer. Marble and stone moulding is a full-fledged business here. The sculptors shape the astonishing white marble into intricate deities and other quirky sculptures. Stones found in the bed of Narmada provide occupation to many carvers and their families.


One can easily get souvenirs from the rows of stalls selling carved artefacts such as the statues of Shiva and Ganesha including other exquisite decorative items. While walking along the shopping streets and ghats, one can witness carvers at work, busy making the masterpieces.


If you are on a visit to Jabalpur, do not forget to visit the Bhadaghat's dhuandhar fall, marble rocks and shop marble handicrafts for your family and friends.
