Slowly we had reached the fifth day of our lovely stay in Bhopal. Each new day, the city unfolded few of its best features and we were falling in love with almost each and every part of it. We would roam the whole day and retire back to our hotel with a contented heart and blissful mind. It was the day to pay a visit to the Bharat Bhawan in Bhopal. Bharat Bhawan is known to be a museum established by the Government of the State. The museum was inaugurated by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in the year 1982 on 13th of February. There is correlative connection between the different forms of art, like visual, verbal and other performing arts.
Bharat Bhavan faces the Upper Lake in Bhopal and hence there is beautiful scenery to one side of the museum. Classical music, folk music, dance forms, literature, library, folk and contemporary art form are all amalgamated within the museum to bring out the display of the best features of Madhya Pradesh. The museum is well maintained by the Government of Madhya Pradesh and is often filled with different kinds of people who come from abroad and from within the state.
There is terrace garden on the top floor of the museum. Moreover the visitors enter through the highest level and walk down the lane to cover most parts of the building. Each and every part of the museum is independent of the other but still there is some missing link among them. I was totally surprised with the construction of the building and being a Masters in Architecture, I was looking deep into the things to discover it.
There are several contemporary shops and outlets within the museum from where souvenirs can be bought for friends and family. The café and art gallery within the museum is also worth taking a look. There is the cultural center in the museum which is one of the finest places in the museum. I was trying to click as many pictures as I could in my camera but there were few places where camera was not allowed. However whatever I clicked will serve the purpose of a good memory and flashback of the time spent in Bharat Bhawan.
