Bhind Tourist Guide, Hotels, Road Maps & Climate
Bhind is in the Chambal region of Madhya Pradesh state in central India. It is named after the mythological Hindu saint Vibhandak Rishi or Bhindi Rishi. The Chambal ends a confluence of five rivers, including the Chambal, Kwari, Yamuna, Sind, Pahuj, at Pachnada near Bhareh in Uttar Pradesh state, at the border of Bhind and Etawah districts.
The Chambal ravine or 'beehad' has been relatively famous, or infamous as you can put it, for dacoits (bandits) for centuries. One of the famous dacoits is Phoolan Devi,who terrorised the entire Chambal valley. The bandit Daku Man Singh and his son, Subedar Singh, were shot dead in an encounter in Bhind in 1955. The bandit Gabbar Singh was killed in Bhind in 1965, based on which the super hit Hindi film Sholay was made in 1976. (Under wikipedia GNU)
