Morena is one of the fifty districts of Madhya Pradesh . The place gets its name from "mor" (peacock) and "raina"- which means a place where peacocks are found in abundance and is home to the largest number of peacocks in India. A part of the Chambal division, Morena is the district and divisional headquarters. Morena is mostly covered in farmland and is very famous across the country for its mustard production.

What is today Morena, at one time was part of the Tonwargarh District of the former princely state of Gwalior. Post India's independence in 1947, all the princely states had to agree to the Government of India's new policies and Morena received its current boundaries. The district is located at a rather interesting spot in the country and touches two states, namely Rajastan and Uttar Pradesh. Morena district contains four sub divisions, namely- Morena, Ambah, Joura and Sabalgarh.

Though Morena is a relatively lesser known place in India there are many interesting places to visit here, such as:

  • Kakan Math Temple: It is believed that this temple was built without using any adhesive. This temple was built by King Kirti Raj to fulfill the will of his wife queen Kakanwati. The temple stands 115 feet tall in the Kajuraho style.

  • Jain Temples: In the east of Morena are ruins of Jain temples of the 11th century AD which contain statues of Shantinath, Kunthnath and Arhanath which are 10-15 feet high.

  • Kutwar: This is the biggest ancient village in the Chambal valley.

  • Mitawali: This area consists of 64 yogini temples which are situated on a 100 feet high mountain.
