About the Book

This is a highly visual guide to the hill station of Pachmarhi, the Queen of the Satpuras. Located in Hoshangabad district of Madhya Pradesh, 195kms from Bhopal, Pachmarhi nestles in the craggy Satpura ranges at an altitude of 1,067 m.

This idyllic hill resort, complete with cascading waterfalls and ancient cave paintings, was rediscovered by the British in 1857. Overwhelmed by its beauty they developed it as a sanatorium for their forces.

The book explores Pachmarhi through its pristine landscape and the old world charm of its quaint bungalows and churches. There is also a detailed chapter on Pachmarhi Biosphere Reserve, which includes Satpura National Park, Pachmarhi Wildlife Sanctuary and Bori Wildlife Sanctuary.

The book has a well-researched section on nearby excursions – Bhopal, Bhimbetka, Bhojpur, Tamia, Patalkot and Jabalpur.

With over a hundred and thirty stunning photographs, hand-drawn illustrations and maps, and an up-to-date Practical Information section, this guidebook is a perfect companion for not just the intrepid tourist but also the armchair traveler.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom

Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
