Madhya Pradesh - A quick visit

Got an opportunity to explore bit of Madhya pradesh in last December 2012.

As I had enough leaves, I was lucky enough to accompany my Dad whose research paper was published in 5th Ayurveda world conference which held in Bhopal.

We left Bengaluru, (Karnataka) by train and reached by Bhopal, capital city of Madhya Pradesh. Attended world conference for couple of days there. Got a chance to meet research scholars from around 40 countries .... UK, US, Europe...along with our own Indian Eminent Physicians in the field of Ayurveda..

Here are couple of photos..

From Bhopal we went to explore and went for sight seeing to near by places : Ujjain , Sanchi , Tropic of cancer , Birla Temple, Bhojpur , Bhojtal  , Manav Sangrahalay and couple of other places. From there we went to Gwalior. Thanks to Sister Nive , we could see known Gwalior fort, Jai Vilas Palace 

Private dining hall of scindhias

Known person of world on a carpet. Rare in India

Sun Temple of Madhya pradesh 

I found literacy rate found to be low in Madhya pradesh. But got to know Hindi which is spoken here is in top class, in whole India. People are financially not so secured. Good to see western culture has not yet affected Madhya pradesh. When I spoke to one of the tourist/student he was telling me : Madhya pradesh is less explored state in India wherein hardly we get any information about tourist places in web.It found to be true. People are here  simple. Helpful.

Hope to visit Madhya Pradesh again some time. Thank you MP for making me such a memorable trip, returned with sweet memories..: -)
