Kabir chabutra

 

 

Name of the place

Kabir chabutra (the platform of saint Kabir)

State

Madhya Pradesh

Reason for sanctity

It is an old belief that the great saint Kabir performed austerities here and achieved spiritual powers. It is, therefore a holy place for the Kabir Panth sect. The local people, the Panikas, consider Kabir Chabutara as one of the holiest places of the Kabirpanthis because San Kabir spent many years here in  meditation .At this very place Kabir and Nanak met and discussed spiritual matters and introduced the way of better living for human beings. It is the meeting point of three districts, Anuppur and Dindori districts of Madhya Pradesh and Bilaspur district of Chhatisgarh.
