Along The Narmada: Travel Guide

 
N / A (Author)
Synopsis

Along the Narmada explores the many facets of this major west-flowing river that rises high up in Amarkantak, and meandering through the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, merges with the Arabian Sea off the coast of Gujrat. Along the way it thunders down the Dhuandhar Falls, near Jabalpur before it smoothly glides through the towering Marble Rocks, flows calmly past Hoshangabad, and washes the ghats of the two temple towns of Omkareshwar and Maheswar. Affectionately called 'Ma', the Narmada Pulsates with the life of the people living on its banks. In fact, it is the only river that has the tradition of a parikrama, or ritual circumambulation, along its entire length of 1,312 kms – the most arduous, believed to be the most meritorious, of all Hindu pilgrimages.

In Hindu mythology, Narmada, or the delightful one, is born of the sweat of Shiva. The mere sight of its waters is enough to grant Moksha to the believer.

This Travel Guide takes the reader through the major towns along the river, many of them well – known tourist destinations. It is also introduces the vast Narmada Valley –home to some of the oldest archaeological finds and with a rich and varied biodiversity, India's earliest dinosaur fossil, Rajasurus Narmadadensis, was also found here.

With over a hundred stunning photographs, this is a perfect companion, not just for the intrepid tourist but also the armchair traveller, to feel and experience the heartbeat of the Narmada.
