Best Places to Visit in Katni

Vijayraghavgarh

Vijaraghavgarh, 33 kilometres from Katni, is a historical site that is 350 metres above sea level. Prince PRAYAGDAS established a new town between MAUJA, PADRIYA, and LOHARWADA and built a shrine to Lord VIJAYRAGHAV, and the fort was named VIJAYRAGHAVGARH. The new town bears the same name as the old one.

A court is accessible on one side of the fort, and on the other side is a gorgeous structure known as RANGMAHAL. There are stones throughout the fort created by KARITALAI. In the Katni region, this is the most magnificent fort.

Roopnath

Roopnath is a pilgrimage site 3 kilometres from Bahoriband where there is a PANCHLINGI (five lingam) statue of Lord SHIVA. There are three KUNDS (tanks) one above another on a standing stone water is there all the time. The lowest one is named SITA KUND, the next above it is known as LAXMAN KUND, and the topmost is known as LORD RAM. A 232B.C. verse has been painted on a large stone.

Following Buddhism requires some sort of order, such as that expressed in Pali language. It chronicles Ashoka’s 212 years of Buddhist practise, yet little has been accomplished thus far. Four antique sculptures have been taken from the mountain one kilometre from ROOPNATH in Sindursi village, and this area is known as JOGINI KA STHAN (place of Jogini). It is thought that the statues are related to monarch JAINAT or SARVANTH of the 6th century.
