About Bhojpur Temple in Bhopal

Bhojpur Temple is a large heritage temple of Lord Shiva in Raisen District in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The Shiva Temple has earned the title of the Somnath of the East and is called Bhojeshwar Temple.

History of Bhojpur Temple

It was founded by the Parmar king of Dhar, Raja Bhoj (1010-53) and was named after him. 28 km from Bhopal, Bhojpur is famous as an archeological site because of its magnificent remains of Shiva Temple and Cyclopean dam. King Bhoja built a series of dams to harvest water of nine rivers at the site of Bhojeshwar Temple in MP. 

The temple houses a 18-feet tall and 7-feet wide lingam. Bhojpur Mandir is a simple square with outside portion of 66 feet, there are no re-entrant angles usual domes, though it is incomplete but has a magnificent soaring strength of line and is supported by four pillars. Like dome the pillars are also massive but they retain a remarkable elegance due to their tapering form. The doorway is richly carved from above and from below it is plain throwing sharp relief against the two exquisitely sculpted figures that stand on the either side. The other three sides are balconies each supported by massive brackets and four intricately carved pillars.

Due to reason unknown the temple was not completed and the earthen ramp used to raise it to dome level still stands. If it would have been completed than definitely it would have been a masterpiece of its kind, and would have had no comparison to any other, anywhere in the world. Bhojeshwar Temple is one of the finest examples of temple architecture of the12th and 13th centuries.

Bhojpur Temple in Bhopal also have a few unfinished statues of Shantinath,  Suparshvanatha, and Parshwanath in a Jain Temple.

    • Trip to Madhya Pradesh

      We were 5 ladies travelling to Bandhavgarh for jungle safari. The trip was well arranged and planned. The accommodation, staff service, ambiance of the resort was really good. The food options were less, however i would still rate it as best for making things available in a place of dense jungles. The transport facility was also punctual and responsive. I would definitely recommend travel triangle, especially Mr Alan Sahu for arranging everything so smoothly with his contacts and for having quick responsive attitude anytime. Thank you so much Alan Sahu :)

      Overall experience was nice. Reg Hotel at Jabalpur we had already offered our opinion. Pl try to avoid that hotel for future guests. Other hotels were ok. We had opted for stay at Orchha. But it was without knowing abt place. U can offer stay at Zasi rather than at Orchha which is more convenient. Bedhaghat was superb.Duwadhar fall also very nice. Bandhavgarh tour was nice. We could see Zasi Fort. As Rani Laxmibai was from Maharashtra, it was a proud feeling for us to visit the place.

      Traveled for the first time using TravelTriangle and Bandhav Journeys to Madhya Pradesh. Bandhav Journey is extremely responsive to all the requests and questions. The whole trip was excellently coordinated and smooth. Whole team was available all the time. few hiccups arose but they were not due to the travel agent but du to last minute location changes. If Local coordinator would have been more vocal, this could have been avoided. But still, issues were resolved immediately. Both Alan Sahoo and blocal agents were available on call and took ownership and sorted out the issues.Drivers provided were very helpful during all trip.

      Booking through Travel Triangle is hassle free. Agents listed are quick and more friendly. Its home like feel from day one of booking to end of Trip. Rewa Resorts at Omkareshwar , Hotel Panchawati at Maheshwar and Hotel Atharva at Indore are best choices of Hotel in Itenary. We have planned in such way that we check-in at destination a day before i.e in evening to plan darshans and holy poojas of next day. This saves time and gives peace of mind to cover all interested poojas at holy place.

      The trip was really good and we did not have any issues during the trip except for one place at Bhopal, wherein our hotel room was booked in hotel Tilak but we had not checked in until evening as we had to visit other places on the list before we could check in. So when we reached the hotel a smaller room was allocated to us instead of the standard room and were asked to wait until 8 pm and then we were requested to adjust in the same small room. I was not happy with the so called Hotel Tilak at Bhopal and when we asked him to allocate another room he asked us if we can shift to another hotel called hotel Alankar. This was not acceptable after a long days travel. Apart from this inconvenience at the Bhopal hotel, everything else was fine with no hassles. I request to kindly have an option of hotel Alankar which was much better in service and rooms then hotel Tilak as neither the staff nor the hotel services were at par at Hotel Tilak.

      The services provided by the agent were great. We were a group of 50 people and all our needs were taken care of efficiently by Ms.Neha. From organizing private parties, to arranging for guides, getting us packed lunch during city tours, all our impromptu demands were met successfully. Would definitely recommend them for future trips. The hotel properties were great. Personal service / constant feedback during the trip.

      It was best sightseeing trip at our ease. Club 7 vacations helped with different planning options, locations and guided through optimum itinerary. We booked travel arrangements through them. Cab driver was courteous and modest. He also introduced us to local tastes and flavors that we were interested, in addition to general outing. Admin team was in touch with us for our smooth trip. We were group of only ladies and entire trip was safe and carefree. Kudos to everyone in team, BIG Thanks. Travel Triangle Rocks for making this happen, Thank You!
