The view is splendid and boat ride gives u a feel as if u r boating in the ocean.the fare is pretty cheap and with safety jackets u r not scared at all. The ride is small though but it is worth.

Any one visiting Bhopal it's a must see spot.

It's a massive and beautiful lake.

Lot of boating options also available over here.

During childhood I had once read / heard about this lake which said "Taal mein Bhopal Taal aur sab talaiya hai" meaning if there is any "taal" (lake) it's the Bhopal taal (lake), others are just small lakes for the namesake. My visit to this lake confirmed the notion - the lake is too too big and is more like a small sea in the midst of Bhopal. This lake had been the lifeline of the city for years.

The site is well maintained and has got boating facilities for the visitors. A statue of King Bhoj (who established Bhojpal city, presently known as Bhopal city) is erected there near the VIP road end of the lake. A very good place to spend time in evening watching sun-set.

- its a HUGE lake that extends to around 35 km.
- easily spotted from air before landing in Bhopal (you will start to wonder how come there is a sea in MP).
- Bhopal Municipal Corp. have done a very good job in keeping the place clean. The place is well kept. (was freshly repainted when we visited). The lake's water is clean.
- Attractions:
1. Boating - Speedboat, Paddle boat or a ride on the boat being rowed by a man. (They provide safety vests, and no crocs/allegators in the lake as well - absolutely safe!)
2. Dargah in the middle of the lake
3. Eateries around the boat club association
4. Sunset - the sky and water turn from Blue to yellow-orange-red to golden before finally turning purple-black of the night on a clear day. try to catch it in the middle of the lake! :)
5. Fishing: nearing the sunset, you will see many ppl trying to catch their dinner using nylon thread and small prawns as bait..
6. After the sunset, the lake reflects the lights of the buildings in the city. The sight is mesmerising.
