Brief History of Bhopal

Bhopal, the beautiful capital of Madhya Pradesh has a wonderful skyline; minarets, domes, steeples of temples, spires and towers. If you are in an open area you would also be able to watch the lush green gardens, hills and the lakes of the city. Bhopal is situated on a hill and the lakes make it even more beautiful. The city with medieval architectural charm is now developing into an educational hub and a modern city with glitzy lights, tall buildings and wider roads. It was originally called Bhojpal, which was later on renamed as Bhopal. In ancient India, it was a neighboring town of Ujjain, the historical capital of Bhoj kingdom.

Bhopal has seen one of the worst calamities post independence in the form of Union Carbide gas disaster. This US Company, which produced pesticides using methyl isocyanate (MIC) as an intermediary, failed to comply with safety norms and its plant located in the heart of the city accidentally released a lot of poisonous gas one night in 1984, when people were fast asleep. Thousands of people died and thousands more were left sick and crippled. Apart from that incidence the city is largely peaceful and progressive.
