About Badi Jheel

The Badi Jheel is more famously known as the 'Bada Talab' (bigger lake) as it is one of the biggest lakes among the ones in Bhopal. It is a large body of fresh water that cannot be scanned from end to end by the naked eye, making for a beautiful, never-ending panoramic visual that spans across the horizon. It is a pristine and clean water body, and owing to this fact, it is also a source of potable water in the city, apart from being a major tourist attraction. One of the main attractions of the lake includes a larger than life statue of the former king of Bhopal, Raja Bhoj. The lake offers a beautiful, panoramic view of the Bhopal countryside and is a good place for boating and sight-seeing. It is also touted to be the oldest man-made lake in India.
