Very few know that the erstwhile walled city of Bhopal was also known as Sheher-e-Khaas. In this walk, we will see some of the precious gems of the city of Bhopal. We will start our walk from the Moti Masjid, a beautiful 19th-century mosque. We will then head towards the Iqbal Maidan and go through the narrow alleys to reach the first palace of Bhopal, the Gauhar Mahal. We will talk about Allama Iqbal's connection to Bhopal at the Iqbal Maidan, as he penned the hearty anthem of Saare Jahaan se Achha. As we go through all the big and small gates and palaces, we will reach the Sadar Manzil and experience the royal past of the venue. We will also try to catch a glimpse of Seedhi Ghat Masjid, Baab-e-Sikandri, Pari Ghaat, Moti Mahal, Shaukat Mahal and Hamid Manzil on our way. We will end the walk with some poha jalebi and hot chai at none other than Raju Tea Stall.
The guided tour is free.
