Some of the options which are worth a try are Ranjeet Hotel (Tariff – Rs. 800), Silver Inn Hotel (Tariff – Rs. 800), Gaurav Hotel (Tariff – Rs. 700) and Hotel Sonali Regency (Tariff – Rs. 650).
The official language of Kithore along with the rest of the region is Hindi.
Krishna Janmashtami in September and Holi in March are some of the popular festivals in the region.
Places of Interest
The village in itself may not have anything interesting to offer. However the state in itself is a haven of tourist attractions, often referred to ‘Hindustan-ka-Dil’ or the heart of India. The neighbouring city of Bhopal has a couple of tourist attractions among which Van Vihar National Park, Taj-ul-Masjid, Bharat Bhavan and Lower Lake are worth a visit.
