Amarkantak : Jabalpur Directory


Birthplace of the sacred river Narmada

Amarkantak is a religious town, being the birthplace of the sacred river Narmada, located at a distance of 218km from Jabalpur. It is called as the "Teerthraj" meaning the king of pilgrimages. It is a mesmerizing and natural marvel and the meeting point of the Vindhya and the Satpura mountain ranges.

Amarkantak is a place of great religious importance for the Hindus. It is actually a Sanskrit word meaning "which is immortal". The poet Kalidas has mentioned it as Amrakoot. People believe that the dense forests of this region were once full of mango (amra) trees. So Kalidas named it as Amrakoot, which later became Amarkantak.

It is believed that who ever dies in Amarkantak is assured of a place in heaven. Mythology says that when Lord Shiva destroyed Tripura the ashes of one fell upon mount Kailash, the ashes of another fell upon Amarkantak, which turned into crores of Shivalingas. But today only one is visible at Jwaleshwar in Amarkantak.
