The state is of great historical importance as it was the seat for the Mauryas, Guptas and a host of other Rajput kings. In terms of development significant strides need to be made, as the state still has to match-up in certain areas.

These include the popular Kanha National Park, Van Vihar National Park, Bandhavgarh National Park. Indore, jabalpur, Gwalior, Ujjain are some of the major cities of Madhya Pradesh.
