Madhya Pradesh is a state in central India. Its capital is Bhopal. Madhya
Pradesh was originally the largest state in India. On November 1, 2000, the
state of Chhattisgarh was carved out.
Madhya Pradesh means Central Province, and it is located in the geographic
heart of India. The state straddles the Narmada River, which runs east and
west between the Vindhya and Satpura ranges; these ranges and the Narmada are
the traditional boundary between the north and south of India. The state is
bordered on the west by Gujarat, on the northwest by Rajasthan, on the northeast
by Uttar Pradesh, on the east by Chhattisgarh, and on the south by Maharashtra.
Madhya Pradesh comprises several linguistically and culturally distinct regions,
Malwa: a plateau region in the northwest of the state, north of the Vindhya
Range, with its distinct language and culture. Indore is the major city of
the region, while Bhopal lies on the edge of Bundelkhand region. Ujjain is
a town of historical importance.
Nimar (Nemar): the western portion of the Narmada River valley, lying south
of the Vindhyas in the southwest portion of the state.
Bundelkhand: a region of rolling hills and fertile valleys in the northern
part of the state, which slopes down toward the Indo-Gangetic plain to the
north. Gwalior is an historic center of the region.
Baghelkhand: a hilly region in the northeast of the state, which includes the
eastern end of the Vindhya Range.
Mahakoshal (Mahakaushal): the southeastern portion of the state, which includes
the eastern end of the Narmada river valley and the eastern Satpuras. Jabalpur
