Day 1:

Departure          : 0615 hr  
Arrival          : 1420 hr

  • Morning: take a train for Bhopal. Reach and transfer to the hotel.
  • Bhopal, capital of Madhya Pradesh combines scenic beauty, historicity and modern urban planning. It is situated on the site of an 11th century city, Bhojapal, founded by Raja Bhoja.
  • Bhopal today presents a multi-faceted profile; the old city with its teeming market places and fine old mosques and palaces still bear the aristocratic imprint of its former rulers; among them the succession of powerful Begums who ruled Bhopal from 1819 to 1926. Equally impressive is the new city with its verdant, exquisitely laid out parks and gardens, broad avenues and streamlined modern edifices
  • Proceed for the sightseeing tour of the city visiting
  • Jama Masjid: Gold spikes crown the minarets of this beautiful mosque built in 1837 by Kudsia Begum.
  • Moti Masjid: Architecturally akin to Delhi's Jama Masjid, this imposing mosque was built by Sikander Jehan, daughter of Kudsia Begum, in 1860.
  • Taj Ul Masjid: The Taj-ul-Masajid is one of the largest mosques in Asia, built by Nawab Shahjehan Begum around a courtyard with a large tank in the centre and with an imposing double storeyed gate-way with 4 recessed archways and 9 imposing cusped multifoiled openings in the main prayer hall. The Quibla wall in the prayer hall is carved with 11 recessed arches, while the mimber is made of black basalt. The structure is enlivened by the limpid expanse of water in the tank outside the northern wall. The monumentality of this structure was much greater originally when it faced the towering bastions of the Fatehgarh Fort. A three-day Ijtima congregation held here annually draws people from all over the country.

Prior to becoming a National Park, the forests around Bandhavgarh had long been maintained as a Shikargah, or game preserve of the Maharaja of Rewa.  The Maharaja and his guests carried out hunting – otherwise the wildlife was well protected.  It was considered a good omen for Maharaja of Rewa to shoot 109 tigers.  His Highness Maharaja Venkat Raman Singh shot 111 Tigers by 1914.
  • There are 32 hills in this part of the park, which has a large natural fort at its center.  The fort’s cliffs are 2625 feet (800 meters) high, 1000 feet (300 meters) above the surrounding countryside.  Winter temperatures (Nov-mid-February) vary from almost freezing at night to around 68 degree Fahrenheit in the daytime.  Summer nights are also cooler than the daytime temperatures, which rise to 104 degree Fahrenheit.  This park is closed during the breeding season, which coincides with the monsoon (July-October).  Rainfall in the park averages 50 inches (120cm) per year.
  • Bandhavgarh is justifiably famous for its Tigers, but it has a wide range of other game.  The undergrowth is not as dense as in some northern terai forests, but the best time to see the park inhabitants is still the summer months when water becomes scarce and the undergrowth dies back.

After ruling for about 500 years the Chandela dynasty fell to the might of Islam and consequently the religious centre of Khajuraho was abandoned.  The temples remain as a reminder of a society that believed in the full enjoyment of life, with all the senses being a path to nirvana.  Of the eighty-five original temples only 22 remain, but many are in very good condition including the Kandariya Mahadeva, the Chatrabhuj, Parswanath and Ghantai Temples, each remarkable for its beautiful design and architecture.
