Bhopal is a twin city divided by two lakes present almost at the heart of the country and rightly fitting in to the tagline of Madhya Pradesh Tourism ‘Hindostan ka Dil Dekho’. Towards South, you find the Old city embellished with history and towards the North you find the Modern city filled with shopping complexes and plush hotels.
It is highly ornamented with the majestic mosques, beautiful havelis and museums. The Nawabi food found here is an absolute delight for the foodies.
Bhopal is also the cultural hub with numerous art performing centers in the city. Sadly, the city is also a reminiscence of a tragic disaster in the chemical plant of Union Carbide that took a toll on a thousand lives.
Summers (April - June)
This is when the temperature range from 24° C to a whopping 47° C. The Summer months are hot, dry and sultry. This isn't a very good time to visit the city. If you do visit Bhopal during Summers, make sure you carry your summer essentials like scarves, light cotton clothes and keep yourself hydrated.
Monsoon (July - September)
Any place becomes beautiful during the rainy months. Although due to increased humidity and heavy rainfall, visiting places might get difficult back at Bhopal. Monsoon months are a good time to visit the city after lowered temperatures and cool showers. The added greenery and beauty is breathtaking.
Winters (October - March)
The weather at this time is misty and chilly. The temperature is an average 6° C. These months are perfect to visit Bhopal. This period witnesses a lot of tourists from far and wide.
Things to do and Places to be in Bhopal
Explore history at Yodhasthal Museum or get awestruck by the ancient paintings in the Rock Shelters of Bhimbetka Caves. Go meditating amidst the Buddhist architecture at Sanchi Stupa. Go for picnic at Van Vihar National Park or enjoy a boat ride in Bhojtal.
As much as the town is for religious seekers it is alike for foodies where you can enjoy Mughlai, Awadhi and Peshawari cuisine or go skinny-dipping your taste buds in the immense variety of Biryanis. You can also head out for a shopping spree at the DB Mall.
