Madhya Pradesh, the heart of India both in location and in culture, has been home to the cultural heritage of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Islam. Innumerable monuments, exquisitely carved temples, stupas, forts and palaces are dotted all over the state. The natural beauty of Madhya Pradesh is equally varied. Consisting largely of a plateau, the State has everything. Spectacular mountain ranges, meandering rivers and extensive forests. But perhaps the best part about MP is the accessibility. Bordered by five states, it is equally close to major tourist destinations from the North, South, East, and Vi/est. Whether you are in Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Chennai, you're never very far from Madhya Pradesh!
