Bhopal is the capital city of Madhya Pradesh. The city is an important tourist destination and you can easily spend a wonderful holiday in the historically important city. The city is well equipped and welcomes all the tourists to come and explore the land of history and culture.

Bhopal is not a city with modernization but it carries all the historical and the mythological evidence that make the land full of heritage and tradition.

Bhopal is not the land where you will find the civilization restricted to one sect but you will definitely spot the other religious sects and the old monuments that will give you the detailed significance of the city. The city was founded by Raja Bhoja in 11th century and that made the city to grow and flourish in the by gone days. You can locate the evidence from the ruins that still illustrates the story of the glorious pasts.

Bhopal - The Cradle of Art and Culture: Bhopal is also the house of art and culture in Madhya Pradesh, and the Bharat Bhavan which sits atop the Shamla Hills, is a prime example of that. Designed by Charles Correa, the museum houses an art gallery, a repertoire company and libraries of poetry, classical and folk music. and since Madhya Pradesh has a large concentration of adivasis (tribals), a visitor at the Tribal Habitat in Bhopal gets a feel of village life in the state.

However, the most interesting facets of the district are the spectacular cave paintings at Bhimbetka, a short distance away from the city of Bhopal. Etched in rock, some of the work is more than 30,000 years old, while the more recent ones belong to the medieval period. The cave paintings are valuable, not just for their artistic merit but also because they constitute a treasure trove of information on the pre-historic age.

Other Tourist Attractions: Bhojpur that is just a few miles away from the city. Bhojpur houses a magnificent Shiva Temple, and apparently was also the site of a huge lake that was destroyed by Hoshang Shah, the ruler of Malwa in mid-15th century. 6km north of Bhopal is Ashapuri which has some old Jain temples. and about 45km from the city is the marvellous Chiklod Palace
