Bhopal Tour Packages
A paradise for art lovers, historians and, of-course, curious travellers, the City of Lakes is one pristine place to get lost in.
Popularly known as the city of lakes, Bhopal is the capital city of Madhya Pradesh. It is located roughly 360 miles far from the Indian capital, New Delhi. The origin of Bhopal dates back to the 11th century. It was founded by King Bhoja, king of the Paramara dynasty (1000 CE - 1055 CE). Thus, the city was named after him as Bhojpal. Later in the 13th century, it was attacked and plundered by its neighbouring cities. The city was re-established as Bhopal when Dost Mohammed Khan of neighbouring Islamnagar built a fort (Fatehgarh) here in 1724. Although Bhopal was a small city, it survived several wars and became a princely state in British India in 1818.
Without recounting the glorious rule of Begums, the history of Bhopal is incomplete. The ladies of royal families ruled Bhopal between 1819 and 1926. During the peaceful rule of Begums, Bhopal witnessed great inventions. It was the last city to join the other states of India after independence. At that time, Nawab Hamidullah Khan wanted to retain it as a separate unit, but agitations broke out against the Nawab in December 1948, and so, in 1949, Bhopal joined other Indian states. In 1956, Bhopal got merged with Madhya Pradesh and was named its capital.
