A 360-Degree walkthrough of the city of lakes, Bhopal

Every adventure begins with an expectation. When you are at the heart of India’s rich cultural environment, you witness one of its cleanest cities (hyperlink this), Bhopal. With the enormous Bada Talao, a hill that’s known as the hill of museums and numerous other leisure activities, you are spoilt for choice as a tourist or as an explorer. The 360-degree walkthrough is a witness to that expectation.

What you see in sequence here is

The Bada Talao or The Big Lake

The bada talao, an expanse rumoured to have been dug out by thousands of workers to help cure the king’s (Raja Bhoj’s) disease, because a set of sages had advised him to take a dip in the water of 365 different tributaries, simply takes your breath away.

Best time to visit: Sunset.

The Kerwa Dam

Known as the city of lakes, Bhopal’s spillway contains in itself, a water body that boundaries the habitat of tigers, deer and other wild beings. While the wild does not disturb you, it sure provides for a visual delight. Ropeways and parks stand at the edge of the dam, which is merely 16 kilometres away.

The city of mosques

Over nine hundred and seventy-five mosques exist in this city of diverse cultures.

When the prayers go off in the speakers, the whole city enters the mode of tranquillity and peace.

If one stands on the edge of the Qudsia Begum’s mosque, they can see the Gohar Mahal on one side and the Iqbal maidan on another. If you fancy a heritage walk in this city, then our guide to it’s culture, Sikander Malik might be of some help to you.

The Taj –Ul – Masajid

Bearing a close resemblance to the Jama Masjid of Delhi, this massive structure houses a centre of learning too. The kids in the 360-degree walkthrough, introduce you to this place, in their own style. They say that the minars can be seen from any part of Bhopal.

The Land of flavour

Once done with the exploration, you are bound to head to the epic food markets housed in the heart of this city. Be it Zam Zam, a fast food centre, or the dessert place in Itwara. The food reaches your heart and makes you want to come back for more.

Needless to say, the people, the hospitality and the views, even this article are only virtual, to see it in its true sense, we suggest you visit it in reality.
