Priceless plants, animals, and marine remains predating even the Jurassic era abound in the Manawar and Gandhwani Tehsils of the district. These exquisite and rare fossils have attracted repeated expeditions of paleontologist from across the globe. At the initiative of the district administration, this unique museum has been set up in the picturesque fringe of the Kakrakhoh falls close to Mandu. Ashmadha, literally means- ““seated in stone““. The Museum has been opened for public recently.
