The capital city of Madhya Pradesh is as rich in history and culture as the state itself. However, what will strike you about this city is the fine amalgamation of the old and the new. With development taking quick steps here, modern amenities have joined hands with the old city’s history and heritage. The Upper Lake and the Lower Lake form the centre of attraction and the city as well. The Upper Lake has many facilities like boating and water sports for tourists and can be an ideal place to spend an evening. However, one should not leave Bhopal before taking a round of the Chowk, at the centre of the city. The narrow alleys here are filled with small shops stocked with traditional treasures. From exquisite silver jewellery, bangles, embroidered goods and traditional crafts you will find them all in this place.
