The capital of Madhya Pradesh, Bhopal is a fascinating amalgum of scenic beauty, a proud heritage and modern urban planning. An Afgan soldier of fortune Dost Mohammed was the founder of the existing city which is situated on the site of the 11th century city, Bhojpal founded by the legendary Raja Bhoja. Bhopal represents a harmonic symphony of the old and new. The old city with its teeming market places, beautiful mosques and quaint palaces still bears the aristocratic imprint of its former rulers.
Panchmarhi is Madhya Pradesh's verdant gem. A lovely hill resort girdled by the Satpura ranges, it offers absolute tranquility. Bridle paths lead into placid forest grooves, of wild bamboo and jamun, dense sal forests and delicate bamboo thickets.
The Vindhya mountain range is covered by huge rocks and recent discoveries here of over 600 rock shelters (the largest group in the world)have revealed paintings that date back to the early stone age.
Bhojpur is famous for its ezquisite 11th century Shiva temple, Bhojeshwar and the lake built by Raja Bhoja Paramana. The temple also houses an enormous 7.5ft shivalingam carved out of a single stone.
