View of marble rocks on the Narmada river at Bhedaghat, taken by Bourne and Shepherd in the 1860s. The marble rocks of Bhedaghat, near Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh, rise to a hundred feet on either side of the Narmada. Here the fast-flowing river cuts a gorge and forms intersting rock formations. The whole stretch of rocks, called Bhedaghat, resembles a bhed (sheep) and hence the name.
