The Vindhya Mountains

The Vindhyas is a range of mountains in central India logically separating the northern parts with the southern India.

The western end of the range rises in eastern Gujarat state, near the border with Madhya Pradesh, and the range runs east and north nearly to the Ganges river at Mirzapur. The southern slopes of the range are drained by the Narmada river, which drains westward to the Arabian Sea.

The Vindhyan tableland is a plateau that lies to the north of the central part of the range. The cities of Bhopal and Indore lie on the tableland, which rises higher than the Indo-Gangetic plain to its north.
