A divine place in Rajnandgaon dist. of Chattishgarh ,almost on border part of Chattishgarh and Maharashtra,(100 km form Raipur and 200Km from Nagpur) easily reachable from Nagpur by number of trains( just make confirm the stoppage of selected train at Dongargarh rly station). The temples of Maa Bamblehwari (badi and choti Bambleshwari) and Buddha statue at hill pragyagiri (on opp hill of Badi Bamblehswari temple hill) are beautiful and peaceful places to visit.One can take an auto to pragyairi hill from station ( a big beautiful statue of buddha at hill ,about 225 steps to climb) the same auto will drop you to Badi Bambleshwari temple at reasonable fare . Badi Bambleshwari temple can be reached easily by walking from rly. station. You can reach to temple on hill either by using the 1000+ steps or by taking the cable car/rope way( fare and time required for your turn, depends on the rush and days/season,like- public holidays, navratri ,vacations).climbing steps is also not much tiring as they are well constructed and at proper distance and slop, and are covered by sheds. while taking cable car also people have to climb some steps. plz. check availability of meal(mahaprasad) on temple side at reasonable coupons.
Choti Bambleshwari devi temple at ground level is nr. about 1 km away from this.This temple is very beautiful in architecture and peaceful and spacious place to visit.Food shops are not much available here. From here one can go back to rly station or to bus stand , by 15/20 min walk, through the very rich,good and attractive market of Dongargarh. From bus stand frequent busses are available for 'Chichola'(20 km,30/40mins) from where the busses to Rajnandgaon, Bhandara and Nagpur are available.
Edibles and food are available at ground level and on road side of Badi Bambleshwari temple area, around Rly station and in Dongargarh market area .Quite clean and cheap hotels and restaurants with mild and tasty vegetarian refreshments and food is available in Dongargarh. For accommodation lodges and hotels are also available very reasonable charges.
In short,one can enjoy comfortable, relaxing and economical a day long trip by visit to all these three places including photography of natural beauty from the hills, some shopping and food.

We visited this place on 14th Mar2017 with Family. Worth visit this place during Winters.

This temple is well connected by Road, Rail and Air. The nearest Airport is Raipur. Its about 110km from Raipur by Road. Dongargarh has Railway station.Its about 25km from the highway.

There are 2 temples, one on hill called Badi Bambleshwari and the other one is away by 1km is called Choti Bambleshwari.

There are about 1100 steps and you can climb or take a cable car. The cost is Rs.50 for to & fro and Rs.30 for one side. But, on festive season, the rate will be more. But, sometimes, the cable car shut for maintenance.

There is a small pond which has boating where you can spent some more time.

Jai Mata di.

It is near about 80km from Bhilai. You can go by road or train. From Dongargarh Rail Station you can see temple which takes 5 mins in auto(5-10rs per person) from station. Ropeway is their or you can use more than 1000 stairs to reach main temple. Go as early as possible. Ropeway starts near about 8:00am. Place is peaceful and well maintained. Very beautiful view of the city from the temple.
