Bhopal – The city of Lakes!!

Bhopal, the capital of Madhya Pradesh in the heart of India is aptly titled “The city of Lakes”. The city, in itself is a green paradise and the lakes only add to its charm.

The main part of the city of Bhopal is situated around these lakes. These lakes also form the backbone of the city’s water system.

These lakes are not only beautiful, but have been maintained very well by the Bhopal city council. I was extremely happy to see a lot of billboards and banners educating people about keeping the lakes clean and that water is extremely precious and its surrounding greenery is what allows them to breathe comfortably.

If you happen to be in Bhopal, do remember to go on a drive through its winding roads that overlook the lake. The drive is simply breathtaking. And, equally inspiring is a late night walk by the lake banks to get a brilliantly lit view of the Bhopal city.
