Shivpuri Tourism

A town in the northern part of Madhya Pradesh, Shivpuri is an ancient town and a sacred place for Hindus in India. The name Shivpuri is derived from the Hindu God name Lord Shiva. Talking about the historical relevance of the town, its reference came in the Mughal Era when Mughal Emperors used to visit the dense forest of Shivpuri for hunting and camping purpose.


This small town of Shivpuri houses several attractions that are a must visit. Madhav National Park is one major attraction of Shivpuri. The park boasts of some of the most exquisite species like the little Chinkara, the Indian gazelle, and the Chital, Nilgai, Sambar, Chausingha or four-horned Antelope, Blackbuck, Sloth Bear, Leopard and the omnipresent common Langur.

Another popular attraction here is Chhatri. Set in a formal Mughal garden and constructed under the rule of the Scindias, the Chhatri is one of the famous monuments that show a fine blend of both Mughal as well as Hindu culture. The Hindu-Islamic fusion here is such that there is a Mughal Garden in the backyard housing the royal tombs of the Scindias. These tombs are surrounded by huge trees, green orchards and verdant bushes reflecting the Mughal styles of architecture.
Bhadaiya Kund is another major attraction here. It is a natural spring, and is known for its high mineral content. Several tourists visit this picnic spot near Shivpuri, especially during the monsoon season.

The Madhav Vilas Palace is another popular attraction here. An immensely sophisticated architecture, the palaces reflect the wealth and clout of the pas rulers. This lavish residence served as the summer palace of the Scindias. It is yet another magnificent example of the display of a majestic style of architecture. The Palace now serves as a training centre of the Intelligence Bureau of Government of India.
