about bhopal

Surrounded by verdant forests, picturesque landscape, majestic mountains and beautiful artificial lakes, Bhopal calls for a fun-filled and memorable vacation. The beautiful mosques, museums and havelis are incredible testimonies of its rich culture and heritage. Bhopal is not only about the glorious past, it is lively, vibrant and cosmopolitan in nature. With a number of art performing centers, Bhopal is a cultural hub for tribal and folk artists. The place is also famous for its amazing cave paintings. Some of the major attractions include Taj-ul-Masjid, Van Vihar National Park and Upper Lake among others.

Situated to the north of the Upper and Lower Lakes, old Bhopal is where you will find the regal echoes of the era of Begums and Nawabs. The newer city spreads to the south. The lakes in the centre provide balm to the eyes and moments of leisure on summer evenings and wintry afternoons. Legend has it that Parmara Raja Bhoj (1010-53 CE), affected by leprosy, was advised by sages to build a lake and bathe in it. Thus was born a bund— and a city. The Parmaras went on to rule over Malwa till the 13th century. By 1565, the region was part of the Mughal Empire and, with its decline in the 17th century, it came to be dominated by local chieftains, the Gonds. The Afghan Dost Mohammad Khan fortified the fiefdom and laid the foundation of what was to grow into Bhopal city in 1723. Dost Muhammad's successor, Ghaus Mohammad, was Bhopal’s fifth nawab. His wife Zeenat Begum was famed for rallying the women of Bhopal to fight in times of siege. Zeenat’s widowed daughter, Qudsia, became the first of the famed Begums of Bhopal, in 1819. Successive queens ruled the city, in an India ruled by kings and princes, through the 19th and early 20th centuries.
