  • Van Vihar is unique because it allows easy access to the visitors through a road passing through the park, security of animals assured from poachers by building trenches and walls, chain-link fence and by providing natural habitat to the animals. Van Vihar National Park is a national park in central India. It is located in Bhopal, the capital city of Madhya Pradesh. Declared a national park in 1979, it covers an area of about 4.45 km².  Although it has the status of a national park, Van Vihar is developed and managed as a modern zoological park, following the guidelines of the Central Zoo Authority. The animals are kept in their near natural habitat. Most of the animals are either orphaned brought from various parts of the state or those, which are exchanged from other zoos. No animal is deliberately captured from the forest.

  • Good place to start day. You can go by bicycle Rs 30, motorcycle , car rs 250- 400 or can walk rs 20 ticket. But it's worth going there. Very calm and peaceful place. One side of the road has animals like zoo which makes it even better. People come here for photography

  • One of the best place in Bhopal. The cleanliness is always maintained here. It's very peaceful for a quite walk, jog or just simply meditation. Most of the animals specially Tiger can be tracked down in the morning and around 4-5 pm during their feeding time. Some of the animals like deer peacocks and monkeys can be seen on road , which makes it feel like a real forest. A must visit place. (Kindly contact for picture credits)
