Begum's Bhopal

0.00 28 Nov 2020

  • Known as the city of lakes for its natural and artificial lakes
  • Only city to be ruled by the Begums of Bhopal for over 100 years
  • The Bhojtal or Bada Talab is the largest man-made lake in india
  • The Taj-Ul-Masajid is one of the largest mosques in India.
  • The Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalay documents the lives of over 450 of India's Adivasi Tribes

Begum's Bhopal

Split by a pair of lakes, Bhopal is two cities within a city. Two starkly contrasting cityscapes.

Towards the North you have the old city, a fascinating area of mosques, serpentine alleys, chowks, milling crowds, exotic havelis and crowded bazaars.

South of the two lakes is the new Bhopal. Modern, with wide roads, upmarket shopping complexes, and plush hotels and restaurants nestled comfortably in the Arera and Shamla Hills, which overlook the lakes and the old city beyond. The central district is known as New Market. Both Bhopals enamour you in their own way and vie to bring out the child within you.
