  About Bhopal

Bhopal is the capital of the state of Madhya Pradesh. It is the second biggest city in the state, after Indore. The entire municipality is spread over a total area of about 286 square kilometres. It includes the administrative headquarters of Bhopal District as well as Bhopal Division. It is often referred to as the 'city of lakes' because of the numerous natural, as well as, artificial lakes within its territory.

According to historians, Raja Bhoja built a city Bhojpal in the 11th century (the original Bhopal city). Later the control of the city came into the hands of the Mughals and remained under them till the beginning of the 18th century.

The princely province of Bhopal was established by an Afghan soldier named Dost Mohammed in 1723. Rani Kamalpathi, a tribal queen, made great contributions and protected him from the Rajput kings in the neighbouring areas. The Begums also had an important role to play in the history of Bhopal as the state was under their control for about hundred years.

The women of the royal families lived a rigid life, were strict followers of their religion and were capable administrators. Begum Nawab Sultan Jahan is considered as one of the greatest Begums who ruled Bhopal. Her son Hamidullah inherited the throne in 1926. He signed the 'Instrument of Accession', after which the state of Bhopal became a part of the Indian Republic in 1947.

The city gained worldwide attention after the Bhopal Disaster of 1984. It was the most disastrous industrial accident where deadly gases like methyl isocyanate leaked from a pesticide manufacturing plant of Union Carbide India Limited (UCIL) and cost thousands of life. The impact was so severe that some people suffer serious birth defects even today.

Bhopal is popular for its silver jewellery, embroidered and sequined velvet purses and cushions and beadwork. The monuments in the city represent the perfect blend of Hindu and Islamic cultures and at the same time the works on these monuments give an insight to the traditions of North as well as South India.

Some of the most popular attractions in this place include religious places like Taj-ul-Masjid, Jama Masjid, Moti Masjid and Lakshmi Narayan Temple (Birla Mandir). Some other places of tourist interest include Sadar Manzil, Lower Lake, Upper Lake, Bharat Bhawan, Museum of Mankind (Tribal Habitat), Birla Museum, Archaeological Museum, Gohar Mahal, Shaukat Mahal and Van Vihar National Park.
