Introduction

Jabalpur, is a city in the state of Madhya Pradesh in India. Soaring in glittering splendour, the Marble Rocks rise to hundred feet on either side of the Narmada. The serene loveliness of the scene is one of cool quiet, the sunlight sparkling on the marble-white pinnacles and casting dappled shadows on the pellucid waters. In this 'Highlands of Central India' Captain J.Forsyth speaks eloquently about the infinitely varied beauty of the Rocks: "The eye never wearies of the... effect produced by the broken and reflected sunlight, now glancing from a pinnacle of snow-white marble reared against the deep blue of the sky as from a point of silver; touching here and there with bright lights the prominences of the middle heights; and again . Here and there the white saccharine limestone is seamed by veins of dark green or black volcanic rock; a contrast which only enhances, like a setting of jet, the purity of the surrounding marble."
