Central India is dominated by the huge state of Madhya Pradesh and the adjacent state of Chhattisgarh. Madhya Pradesh, known as the heart of India, has no coast line and is bordered by five other states.
Madhya Pradesh has a rich cultural heritage and some of the best National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries in the whole of India. There are a number of domestic airports and good rail links. Chhattisgarh is still developing its tourist infrastructure and is currently a great place to visit if you are interested in tribal culture.
