Bhopal lake - its big..really big!!

Bhopal Lake 'n' me>>

Today I thought of showing you a place in Bhopal (India). I often visit this place almost every week or so, whenever I m on semester break.. The bhopal city sprawls over seven hills, like Rome. Well you just can’t compare Bhopal with Rome at all, I m just talking in terms of topography…lol!! There are many lakes and for this reason, bhopal is known as the City of Lakes. Upper Lake is in the center of the city and its so large that you can't see all the way across and, for a moment, you imagine you're at the seashore.

Boating, water sports and kayaking....or simply hanging around are the most common thing that people use to enjoy in this lake. I just include here some images or photos of Bhopal Upper Lake and ya me...hehe.


lake view from promenade
Thats me!!

There is a temple in the center of the lake in just a small island. And you can go up to the temple by boating. When to go there?? Well best time to go there according to me is in the evening when the sun is near the horizon and about to verge. Cold wind of the lake in the evening will take away all the sorrow and tensions off your mind, this thing goes for me I dunno about others. This is a peak time and you will majorly find couples and college youth hanging around in promenade and cafeterias....and ya the fresh water cruises (namely "LakeView Princess") are another center of attraction.

Evening time!! Isn't it captivating!!

In the other side of the lake, there is marine drive and it must be around 4-5 Kilometres long. The road is totally straight and it runs by the side of Upper Lake.

At marine drive, bhopal!!

This Marine Drive is even a better place to hang out with friends in bikes and other open vehicles to feel some fresh air during summer and autumn...ahh this place is definitely a paradise if you are committed or into some kind of relationship, just come here with your dear ones, I bet you will remember time spent here for quiet a long time....


But plz do think twice before coming here if you are a SINGLE DUMB like me, mentally prepare yourself to keep yourself cool, and don't get frustrated chewing peanuts and cashews all alone...lol!!


Cheers:)
