Water-colour drawing by Sir Richard Hieram Sankey, of a shrine with bells in a forest-cave near Pachmarhi, dated c.1860.

Pachmarhi is a quiet hill station of Madhya Pradesh situated at an altitude of 1067 metres. The large plateau is surrounded by the Satpura range of hills. Around Pachmarhi there are some interesting archaeological places. Around the hilltop shrine of Chaurgarh, near Mahadeo, the summit is covered with emblems of Mahadeo's (Shiva) worship. In the Mahadeo hills there are some cave temples containing very old rock painting.
