The heritage attractions
Let us learn a few more things about these heritage sites in Bhopal, so that when you finally visit them, you will already be equipped with the facts and figures of its significance.
It is important to know that all the heritage sites are mostly spread over large areas and hence none of them will be found in proper Bhopal. You will have to travel a certain amount of distance to reach these sites, and hence, it is best to keep plenty of time in hand to explore and learn about these places.
Temples of Khajuraho: Khajuraho has earned international fame and repute being one of the wonders when it comes to architecture. This group of temples is believed to have been eighty five in number but today we get to witness the remains of only twenty five of them. These temples are full of exquisite carvings and are made up of varied materials like granite, sandstone of different hues etc. This is a must visit heritage sites and one of the prides of Bhopal. These temple clusters are located quite far away from the city close to around 374 kms from the main area. So you need to make sure that you have enough travel time which would roughly come down to seven and a half hours one way. So it will be best if you book a hotel at Khajuraho itself, for one night.
Bhimbetka Rock shelters: On an unsuspecting corner on the way to Hoshangabad, you will chance upon what look like simple caves. However, the moment you take a sneak peek, you will realize its significance. Being roughly 45 km away from the main city, the rock shelters here are one the most interesting things that you can find in India. In a small area of only a width of 3kms, this place houses close to 700 shelters and paintings in their walls. These paintings are of the daily life of the people of the prehistoric age, which helps us in archaeological works.
