Bhopal Tourist Guide, Hotels, Road Maps & Climate

Bhopal is the capital of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh and the second largest city in MP after Indore. Bhopal is known as the City of Lakes as its landscape is dotted with a number of natural as well as manmade lakes. The city unfortunately attracted international attention as a consequence of the Bhopal disaster, when the Union Carbide plant (now a part of Dow Chemical Company) leaked deadly methyl isocyanate gas during the night of December 3, 1984. Bhopal was built on the site of an 11th century city, 'Bhojapal', founded by the legendary king, Raja Bhoja. The founder of the current modern city was Afghan soldier Dost Mohammad (1708-1740).
