The capital city of Madhya Pradesh, with it's many mosques from the Mughal era, new developments, two beautiful lakes and numerous wildlife sanctuaries; Bhopal really is a vivid mix of the old, the new and the natural. After befalling a major industrial disaster in 1984, this city created by King Bhoj around 1000 years ago has become the greenest and also one of the most beautiful in India.
The Mughal influence is strong in the city; it can be seen in the food, the harmonious coexistence of religions and the grand old monuments and mosques. Your Bhopal tourist guide will take you to see the largest mosque in India, the Taj-ul-Masjid as well as the Jama Masjid and Moti Masjid. Another throwback to the Mughal connection is the exquisite beadwork and hand embroidery for which a visit to the Old City is a must. Just outside the town is Bhimbetka, a world heritage site with some of the oldest cave paintings in the world. A visit to Bhopal is as sweet, sour and spicy as the 'chaat' it is famous for.
