Situated on the site of an 11th century city, Bhojapal, founded by Raja Bhoja, Bhopal today presents a multi-faceted profile; the old city with its ethnicity, fine old palaces and mosques and the modern new city with its well laid out parks and gardens, broad avenues and streamlined modern facilities.
Bhopal, the capital of Madhya Pradesh, is a city of historical, economical and as well as political importance. The monuments of the city still reflect the aristocratic lifestyle of its rulers, which one can feel on the tour packages to Bhopal. Dost Mohammed, an Afghan soldier, was the founder of the existing city. It is said that on his journey back, from Delhi after the death of the Mughal emperor, Aurangzeb, he met with queen Kamalapati. She took his aid after the death of her consort. A legend states how the queen would drift in a lotus barge on a full moon day across the lake. At present there are two lakes in the city, which are divided by an over bridge, adding further beauty and glory to this city of Begums who ruled the city for more than a century.
The Lakes: The larger Upper Lake covers six square km and a bridge separates it from the cross the other way there's a footbridge which brings you out right on the Hamidia Rd corner. You can rent boats to go out on the lakes which are very pictuesque when they reflect lights fror houses around the lake at night.
