Van Vihar is a National Park in Bhopal and is located right in the centre of the city. The park has been built on an area of 445 hectors and stands atop a hill that overlooks the entire city. The place is quite a popular spot among tourists and is visited each month by thousands.
This national park boasts of softly rolling grasslands that remain green throughout the year. The park is home to a wide variety of herbivores and carnivores who roam in the park as they would in their natural habitats.
However, the place is more akin to a zoo than a park considering the variety of animals that are housed here. Also, Van Vihar is home to many orphaned animals that come from different states of India. Some animals have also been brought in exchange for other animals. The place is a must visit especially if you have children with you.
