Swami Vivekananda International Airport (IATA: RPR, ICAO: VARP) (formerly known as Mana Airport) is the primary airport serving the state of Chhattisgarh, India. The airport is centrally located at Mana, 15 km (9.3 mi) south of Raipur between the old city and the new seat of the state government Naya Raipur. In 2006, this Airport witnessed an 82% increase in passenger traffic (the highest in the country for that year). The Airport is one of the 35 non-metro airports recently modernised by the Airports Authority of India (AAI).
Swami Vivekananda – The Airport is named after this great saint.
On 24 January 2012, the Union cabinet of India approved the State Government’s proposal for renaming Raipur airport after the well known Indian saint Swami Vivekananda who spent 2 years of his teenage in Raipur. It is currently served by Air India, Jet Airways, Jetlite and IndiGo while Kingfisher Airlines suspended its operations in November 2011 due to its bad financial condition. There are also non-scheduled services by Air Odisha to Bhubaneswar and Air Taxi services by Chhattisgarh Air Link which flies from here to other cities of Chhattisgarh.
New Integrated Terminal
A new integrated terminal covering an area of 18,500 m2 (4.6 acres) has been constructed by a joint venture of Era Infra Engineering and KMB from Ukraine at a cost of INR136 crore (US$21 million).
It was inaugurated on 7 November 2012 by President Pranab Mukherjee. The new terminal has 2 aero-bridges, 20 check-in counters, 2 x-ray luggage machines, 3 security check points and 3 conveyor belts for luggage. The building is designed to handle 700 passengers including 200 international flyers at a time.
The terminal also has a provision on 15 immigration counters for prospective international flights.
Shoppers Stop has opened a retail store in the new integrated terminal making it one of the five Airport Stores operated by Shoppers Stop Ltd. in India.
The airport however, is likely to remain ‘dry’ as the Airports Authority of India has abandoned the proposal for opening of a beer bar after opposition by the public against the sale of liquor at a place named after a great saint.
The proposed international terminal is being upgraded along with the runway expansion project to enable the airport to handle larger aircraft for starting international operations, connecting the city to South-East Asia and the Middle East. The new terminal will be used for domestic flights, while the proposed international terminal is being renovated to handle international operations. Currently 4 international carriers have shown interest to start operations to Bangkok, Dubai, Qatar and Singapore once the airport is ready to start international operations.
The Airports Authority of India has also cleared the way for starting air cargo operations from the airport by giving nod to develop the old terminal building into a cargo complex.
The airfield is equipped with night landing facilities and a CAT- 1 Instrument Landing System (ILS) as well as Navigational facilities like DVOR, DME, and an NDB.
The founder of this math (temple) was Shri Balbhadra Das Mahantji. However no body knows the exact date when he came to Raipur. Mahantji was great devotee of Lord Hanumanji. He started worshipping a piece of stone as if that was the Lord Hanuman himself. Everyday a cow called “Surhi” would come and bathe the stone with milk which the Mahantji drank and in fact stopped eating food. Hence with the passage of time, Mahantji’s food was “Dudh-Ahari” meaning food consisting of milk and hence the name of the math followed. In days of yore, when Raipur came under the Nagpur region, it used to be ruled by the Bhosles. Shri Raghu Raoji Bhosle who was then king built the “Balaji Temple” in 1610 AD.
The village is identified with Champaranya, the birth place of the Saint Vallabhacharya, the reformer and founder of the Vallabh Sect for whom this place has religious sanctity. A temple was constructed in honour of Guru Swamy Vallabhacharya. Near to this Temple, there is the temple of Champakeshwara Mahadeva.
An annual fair is held every year in the month of Magh (January – February). Birth Anniversary of Mahapprabhu Vallabhacharya is celebrated every year on Eleventh bright day of Baisakh (April-May) and a large number of followers of the Sect assemble here to pay homage.
Majestically located in the midst of the magnificent Vindhya and Satpura ranges at an elevation of 1065 meters, Amarkantak in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh wraps up the beauty and charm of a typical sylvan environment. This lovely tract of land is a major pilgrim centre in the entire central province and is famed as the source of two pretty rivers, the Narmada and the Sone.
Amarkantak is a Sanskrit word with much mythological significance, which gains it the prestigious sobriquet as Theertharaja. Holiness of Amarkantak is greatly associated with the holy river Narmada. Perhaps it is due to the presence of this holy river that this locale in the Vindhyans gets much popularity as a devout centre. As per the Holy Scriptures, River Narmada transcends all other sacred rivers with her indomitable virtue as the daughter of Lord Shiva. Legends has it that a mere glance of this beloved daughter of the destroyer God would fetch innumerable boons and the devotees strongly believe that who ever dies at Amarkantak would fetch salvation.
A land with a vivid history, Amarkantak narrates the tales of various dynasties, right from the Pandavas to the foreign rule of the modern times. Each edifice in Amarkantak portrays diverse styles that recount the period during which these architectural grandeurs were materialized. This stunning facade of Amarkantak gently adds the magnificence of this legendary spot to a great extent.
Internationally acclaimed as a natural heritage zone, the dense forests of Amarkantak depict a unique ecosystem. Its far-off valleys and atolls showcase an exceedingly diverse floristic genre, where ratio between species to genera is comparatively minimal.
A relatively off track destination Amarkantak is a veritable paradise, with a salubrious climate and most pictorial environs. Its ever-pervading air of composure, the grassy hills, woody backgrounds and the bewitching cascades makes it a popular wacky destination.
At Amarkantak one can feel the pristine nature in its full bloom and the place is all set to enthrall the onlooker with its sacred ponds, glittering streams, snooty knolls and the dense woods.

Chitrakot falls, also sobriquet as the ‘Niagra falls of India’ is scenically located at a distance of 48 kms from Jagdalpur in Chhattisgarh. Claiming to be the broadest waterfall in India, the waterfall is formed by the river Indravati, when it falls from a height of 29 mts, i.e. 96 ft.
The breadth of the waterfall varies from season to season as the river dries up during the summer. An interesting fact about the waterfall is that there is a vast difference in the view during the summer and in the monsoon. While the waterfall looks white and clear during summers, it gains the brown colour of the silt during the monsoons. Also the water appears to be milky in the morning, crystal white during the afternoon and then reddish as the night grows.
Since the river settles down quickly, boating is also possible. The best time to visit this giant is during the monsoons when it its effect is at the mightiest. Surrounded by lush green forests, the view of the chitrakot waterfall from a distance gives a very pretty picture.
Many government rest houses are available for sojourn. Tourists can also indulge in shopping for local handicrafts made by the tribal. Located a just a stone’s throw away from Jagdalpur, one can visit this waterfall only via the road.
