    Destinations - Bhojpur
Bhojpur, the 11th century city located on the characteristic sandstone ridges of Central India, is one of the tourist hotspots in Madhya Pradesh. The Betwa River flows beside the laidback ancient city add that old world charm to Bhojpur tourism. The city is at a meager 28 kilometers distance from Bhopal, the state capital of Madhya Pradesh. Bhojpur gets its name from Raja Bhoja (reg. c. 1000–1055 CE), the most famous ruler of the Paramara empire. There is no archaeological proof from Bhojpur before the eleventh century, a fact established by local myths which tell how Bhoja prepared a vow to make a series of dams to hold the streams of 9 rivers and ninety-nine rivulets.
