Bhopal is situated along the slopes of a sandstone ridge in the north-western part of Madhya Pradesh. Bhopal lies on the banks of an enormous lake spanning several square miles, dominating its landscape and giving it a magnetic, mesmerizing quality. The city was built by King Bhoj in the 11th century. Till 1707 the region was a part of the Mughal Kingdom. The Begums of the royal family ruled it for almost 100 years, before Nawab Hamidullah, son of Nawab Sultan Jahan, the third Begum, ascended the throne in 1926. He acceded Bhopal to India in 1947. Bhopal city is fascinating combination of natural picturesque beauty, rich history and modernity. The city's rich history always welcome those who are inclined towards finding more about the city, Bhopal, The serenity of the lake is perhaps is responsible for an air of almost deliberate lethargy and gratification. Bhopal once a small, sleepy picturesque town with lush forests and laid-back days of shikars, leisure and quiet fishing trips is the capital of the state of Madhya Pradesh. But still, in the wake industrialization and growth resulting in conflux of people, Bhopal retains its eternal quaintness and charm.

The two beautiful lakes that surround this historical city have been and will be two major life lines of Bhopal, as these lakes provide for several people and is a major attraction of Bhopal. The city is divided into two parts one being the newer more modern part that has modern edifices, well laid out city plan, with parks and gardens and the other that still cherishes the imprints that were left on it by the rulers of the past.
