The Upper lake is divided from the Lower lake by an overbridge and is 6 Sq.km. in area. Madhya Pradesh tourism has developed a Yatch Club on the upper lake, which provides facilities of sail, paddle and motor boats.
Said to be the largest mosque in the country, the construction of this towering edifice was begun by Shah Jehan Begum (1868-1901) but was incomplete on her death. The great queen, Bhopal's eight ruler, left many monuments in the city and to her goes the credit for Bhopal's postal system, railway and waterworks. After her death, lack of fund prevented the completion of masjid and construction was resumed only in 1971.The most striking features of the mosque are the impressive main hall with its inter-arched roof, broad facade, spacious courtyard and smooth marble floor. A three-day Ijtimaj congregation held here annually draws people from all over the country.
It is a unique multi-celled hall of arts. Designed by the world-renowned architect Charles Correa, Bharat Bhavan is the centre for visual and performing arts. It consists of a museum of tribal and folk arts, an art gallery, a workshop of fine arts, a theatre, an indoor and outdoor auditorium and an excellent library.
This safari park is located adjacent to the upper lake, with an area of 445 hectares where wildlife watchers can see a variety of herbivores and carnivores in their natural surroundings.
In the heart of the old city, the chowk is lined with old mosques and havelis, reminders of a bygone era. The shops in its narrow alleys are treasure troves of traditional Bhopal crafts: silver jewellery, exquisitely fashioned beadwork, embroidered and sequined velvet fashioned purses and cushion.
Situated near Lalghati in a hill having many natural caves lies this ancient temple. It is believed that this temple was rediscovered in 1949 by Swami Narayandas.

This structure is located in Old Bhopal on a major road to Shahjehanbad. This structure was built during the reign of the Nawabs fs. At present, it has been transformed into a memorial for the freedom fighters of the Independence movement. There also is an ever-glowing torch in honour of local heroes.
