Madhya Pradesh is not called the "Heart of India" just because of its location. It 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. Though it is mainly a plateau it is well forested especially in the Vindhya-Kaimur, the Satpura, the Maikala ranges and the Baghelkhand plateau. The state boasts of spectacular mountain ranges, meandering rivers and miles and miles of dense forests offering a unique and exciting panorama of wildlife in sylvan surroundings. It has been declared as the TIGER STATE OF INDIA as it holds some of the most accessible havens for the endangered Leo tigers. These royal creatures can be spotted in the beautiful hill ranges of Vindhya and Kaimur. They can be seen at banks of rivers Narmada and Mahanadi. It also has India”s biggest concentration of tribal population estimated at 22 million. These inhabitants were driven from the well watered Gangetic plains by a succession of invaders and took refuge in this state. This natural beauty and ethnic diversity have given it a unique flavour, which appeals to every traveller.]
