Sight Seeing

Bhojpal was built by Raja Bhoj in the eleventh century and thus inherited the prosperity of the Gupta Dynasty.  Later on, the Mughals captured the city and ruled it till the beginning of the eighteenth century. The Afghan soldier – Dost Mohammed established the princely province of Bhopal in 1723. Well supported by the tribal queen – Rani Kamalpathi, he was able to ward off the neighbouring Rajput kings. When speaking about the History of Bhopal, the contribution of the Begums cannot be written off. The females of the royal family ruled the state for almost hundred years. They led austere lives, followed their religion faithfully and were able administrators. Begum Nawab Sultan Jahan was one of the greatest Begum rulers of Bhopal.

Sultan Jahan's son Hamidullah inherited the throne in the year 1926. Under him, the Bhopal State signed the 'Instrument of Accession' and became the part of the Indian Republic in 1947. The sleepy town of Bhopal has today transformed into a swanky modern city akin to a State Capital. Today Bhopal is one of primary choices of MNCs trying for expansion on one hand and for individuals to settle down in this peaceful city on the other.  With the upcoming ISBT and BRTC and the boom of real estate business, Bhopal is certain to become one of the beautiful cities in the near future.
