Bhopal is the capital of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.

According to folklore, Bhopal is said to have been founded by the king Bhoja, who ruled from his capital at Dhar. This theory states that Bhopal was originally known as Bhojpal after a dam ("pal") constructed by the king's minister.

Bhimbetka Caves are about 35 kilometers from Bhopal city. They have evidence of dwellings of prehistoric man during the Paleolithic era. Rock paintings in the caves are specimens of prehistoric settlements in India. There are about 600 caves, but only 12 are open for visitors. UNESCO declared Bhimbetka Caves as a World Heritage Site in 2003.
