Madhya Pradesh exploration expedition: Discover the 'Heart of India'
Madhya Pradesh is known for its extravagant culture and heritage, its vibrant temples, untamed ranges of Satpura along which major sanctuaries reside and colloquial food items. However, there is always something more for travellers to explore and learn about this state.
With an aim to attract tourists, the state tourism department organises several events throughout the year. This is not just for the state to get tourists, but for the people to take a peek into the rich culture, understand the state's ethnicity and learn from the on-ground practices.
We have curated a list of activities that any traveller can participate in if visiting the state in the month of September and October.

The event was kickstarted on the occasion of World Photography Day and will continue to take entries till September 18. So hurry up and start capturing the beautiful moments.
