Residents Demand Tourist Status For Old Ashta
Astha (Madhya Pradesh): The residents of old Ashta want to make it a tourist destination. The old Ashta, located 1.5 kilometers from Nipania village on a hill 500 feet high, came into existence nearly 600 years ago.
It used to be the residence of kings, but now one can see a lush green environment with temples, cottages, and trees.
The beauty of nature at this place is such that anyone who visits feels delighted. Now, people are demanding to include it as a tourist destination. In old Ashta, there used to be military barracks on both small hills in the east direction of the fort. In the south of the fort, there was a pond for water management.
The broken embankment of the pond still exists. In the place where Bawdikheda village is located to the north of the fort, there used to be a market. Currently, there are temples of Lord Hanuman and other deities, along with cottages.
Ashta Block is the most important place. However, due to the lack of proper maintenance and any other initiatives, many people are not aware of it. People say that if the administration pays attention to this place, it can be an excellent tourist destination, which will further increase revenue for the administration.
