“BHOPAL” the city of lakes also known as “Nawabon ka Sheher” as its name symbolizes, the city is famous for the beauty of lakes. But lakes are not the only center of attraction of this city. There are much more places to explore other than jheels. So grab your bag along with your DSLR and lots of snacks and LET’S START OUR RIDE!


Upper Lake:

It is obvious to mention it in the first place in this list. Lakes are the main identity of this city.  It is situated on the western side of the city. The primarily upper lake was known as Bhojtal as it was made under the Kingship of Raja Bhoj. It is a beautiful place to visit and even the path to reach there i.e. VIP road also carries Raja Bhoj Setu on it which is one of the best roads of Bhopal.


Van Vihar National Park:

One of the beautiful places in Bhopal is Van Vihar National Park. The architecture of this place is the most fascinating thing to observe. One side of the National Park is a jungle and the other side is the lake which symbolizes the unity among aquatic and terrestrial living beings. This is a must-visit place and I would strongly recommend you to visit there.


Lakshmi Narayan Temple / Birla Mandir:

This temple is one of the oldest temples of Bhopal. It is situated at the top of area hills. Also, it is situated at the highest point of Bhopal. This temple provides us not only a spiritual environment but also a landscape scenario of the city from the peak point. Tourists from all over the world visit this temple to experience our religion.


Manuabhan Tekri:

This temple is situated near Bairagarh road almost 7km away from Bhopal on the top of a hill. There is a Jain Temple on this Tekri where people go either rope-way or by their vehicle. If you love heights and you are in Bhopal, then do visit this place for sure.

Kerwa Resort :

If you are a hardcore biker and want a smooth and empty road to ride, then the way to Kerwa resort is the best for you. This place is my personal favorite in the city. The road to Kerwa resort is surrounded by dense forest on both sides. You’ll get a great display of flora and fauna while reaching the resort. And the resort itself is a paradise. This resort is situated on the heights you can see the beautiful waterfall from the balcony of your room. The best part is, you can even go down the hill to do the trekking in the jungle of Kerwa dam.


Sair Sapata:

Sair Sapata is amusement in Bhopal. It is located in the Banks of the Upper Lake. It is a good place to spend your eve time whether with your friends, family or couple. Evening time will be better because the light effect in Sair Sapata looks very beautiful and you can definitely have your photo session done. There are many rides and a tiny train that takes a whole round covering the entire Sair Sapata. Boat rides are also available. This is an open place and has many trees and a big beautiful center bridge

So, these are some of the amazing places to visit in the city. If you ever come to Bhopal, don’t forget to include these places in your bucket list. There are still more places to visit but I’ll keep that secret. You have to visit our beautiful city and explore with us to discover more exciting places.
