Nice place near balancing rock at Jabalpur. You have to climb lot of steps to reach the ruined fort. You will get excellent view of Jabalpur city from the top.

A number of stairs take you to this fort. This fort is small and mainly in ruins. Nothing spectacular about it. No fee for entering.

Madan Mahal Fort is very ancient fall is in very bed condition, not maintained well. It does not attract too much but it's ok. Nothing special.

The place was used as a check post in the time of Rani Durgavati at 1100 AD. The place is very neglected and one has to ride more than 1000 steps to reach that place
