Bhopal Travel Guide

Bhopal, the charming capital of India’s largest state, Madhya Pradesh is also referred as the City of Lakes because of the two beautiful lakes that are situated in the center whereas the city itself is situated on gently rolling hills.

Bhopal is an interesting heritage city - a mixture of the traditional and contemporary. The old city with its crowded markets, narrow alleys, beautiful palaces, old havelis (manors) and fine mosques, lies juxtaposed with the well-planned new city of broad avenues, modern buildings and well planned residential colonies. A tourist's delight, Bhopal has happily managed to retain its green, clean look.

Bhopal was the site of the world’s worst industrial disaster till date. The reason being that in 1984 the accidental leakage of toxic chemicals from Union Carbide factory, which released deadly fumes of Methylisocyanate gas, killed thousands of residents.
