Bhopal Things to Do

  • Bhoj Temple

    The 11th century Bhoj temple. There is an interpretation centre that gives the history of the Raj Bhoj empire. There are some rails around the rocks and some miss what this is. They are 11th century architectural plans carved in the rock instead of blueprints. There is a view of the river that had a dam by Bhoj more than one thousand years ago.

  • Boat Club

    There are three kinds of boats you can ride at Upper Lake Boat club. The big Lake Princess Boat upper or lower deck. The speed boat or the paddle boat.

  • Kaliyasot Dam

    This is a place for walking. Near IEHE institution so students hang at this walking path along the dam.

  • Tribal Museum

    Madhya Pradesh has the most tribals and the best tribal museum in India. But don't pick up and play with the bow and arrow we found out.

  • Van Vihar National Park

    Drive through or rent bicycles at the gate. You will see lions, tigers and bears and many other animals.

  • The Taj-ul-Masjid

    The Taj-ul-Masjid, or Crown of mosques is, the largest Mosque in Asia and is a treat to see, as much because it is Asia’s largest Mosque, as for its beautiful setting in the Old City.Madhya Pradesh is often described as a Gateway to History, and while the Masjid was finished 40 years ago, it retains an antique feel amidst the labyrinthine alleys of...

  • Taj-ul Masjid

    The Taj-ul Masjid Minarest are 18 stories high and my Road atlas of India says Taj-ul Masjid is India's biggest Mosque. Other references say it is Asia's largest Mosque.

  • City view from Manua Bhan Ki Tekri

    Manua Bhan Ki Tekri, is a Jain temple and pilgrimage destination. It offers tourists a panoramic view of the Bhopal lakes and city. There is a footpath or cable car to the top. Even if you do not go to the top (I did not go up) you can at least be aware of it. This photo is the view of Manua Bhan Ki Tekri from the Raja Bhoj Airport and you can see...

  • Bhojpur-great day trip

    Bhojpur is about 28 kms from Bhopal and a great day trip.It was founded by the Raja Bhoj , and is an architectural feat with those giant stone slabs.The magnificent Shiva Temple draws thousands of devotees and tourists from far, all year long.

    Fun city, an amusement park, built in the outskirts of Bhopal is a wonderful place to spend a weekend with kids and grown ups, both assured of a great time.We especially enjoyed the Waves pool, resembling the ocean waves.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    20 years on from the world's worst chemical disaster, the remains of the Union Carbide factory is still killing of disguring thousands. It is estimated that up to 20,000 may have died from the effects of the explosion (8,000 on the day, 12,000 following) and up to 150,000 afected in various ways. Birth defects, cancers and other problems are still life. Union carnides new owners (Dow Chemicals) admit no liability whatsoever.

    The groundwater in the area may be affected for several miles. Anybody with any sense always buys bottlewater in Idia anyway, but be especially careful here to make sure you don't recieve ice, or eat salds that may have been washed in local water.
