Vidisha Tourism & Travel Guide

Vidisha in Madhya Pradesh is believed to have been visited by Lord Rama and his foot impressions are still there to prove it. They have been named Charan Teerth and are situated at the Betwa ghat. Vidisha has found mention in the Pali scriptures, and today it is famed for its valued heritage and the presence of ancient sculptures. The Udayagiri caves here are worth a visit. A cluster of about 12 caves, some dating back to 400 AD, this place is secluded and often overshadowed by other imposing sites. Many of the caves are engraved with Hindu religious scenes. You can pay a quick visit to the Heliodorus Pillar that holds valuable historical records in the form of engravings. It stands as a monolithic column and bears testimony to the cross-cultural exchanges during the 2nd century BC. Towards the east of Vidisha are the ruins of Bija Mandal, a beautiful 11th-century temple dedicated to goddess Vijaya. It was destroyed by Aurangzeb and a mosque was erected in its place. The unending number of religious sites feature the temples of Maladevi, Bajramath, Girdhari and Gadarmal. At the heart of the city is Lohangi Pir, a small hillock providing a sweeping view of the town. Travellers who are interested in history and architectures should not miss this humble town.

Bhopal
Best time to visit - N/A
Considered to be one of the greenest cities in the country, Bhopal, is a place that one cannot afford to leave off their tourist trail. Adorned by many natural and as well as manmade lakes and water bodies, Bhopal is often referred to as the ‘City of Lakes.’ The city is home to a number institutions and places that are of great national importance. The city houses ISRO’s Master Control Facility and the famous National Institute of Technical Training and Research (NITTTR), AIIMS and BHEL. The city has a number of attractions that lure many a tourist to tread along its roads. If one does plan a visit to this city, do not forget to pay a visit to the Bhimbetka Rock Caves, the superb artificial Upper Lake, try out the food at the historic Lazeez Hakeem Restaurant and visit the many mosques here. An unfortunate incident in December 1984 propelled Bhopal into the international arena. The case of the Union Carbide India Limited, a plant that manufactured pesticide, saw the leakage of a poisonous mixture of gases, especially methyl isocyanate that lead to the great disaster. Nevertheless, the city is clean now and promises one a great visit.

A rapidly developing city in Madhya Pradesh, Indore is the perfect example of a small town packed with the right kind of holiday experiences. Especially if you are a foodie! The Sarafa Bazaar which is open till the wee hours of morning is a must visit and should not be missed! The market opens only around midnight and this is perhaps what makes it a little more special. The bazaar offers a plethora of street food and it's one of the best foodie experiences you can have in the country. Other than that, you can visit the beautiful Central Museum. The museum houses collections dating back to the pre-historic era and if art and history interest you, do head here. Indore is also at a prime location for tons of tourist spots including Shri Omkareshwar Jyotirlinga, Patalpani and Maheshwar. If you are in the mood for trekking, you can head to Ralamandal Wildlife Sanctuary for a bit of adventure. The summer months here are quite harsh, so it's best to go during winter. The people of Indore are warm, welcoming and quite adventurous so if you happen to know an Indori, you will have a chance to explore a different side of the city.
