Van Vihar National Park, Bhopal


During last five years i am frequently visiting Bhopal, but never got chance to visit the beautiful Van Vihar National Park which is situated in the heart of city along with big lake. This time stolen some time from busy schedule in morning and visited the van Vihar National Park. Van Vihar National Park was declared in 1983 with an approx area of 4.45 sq KM.

The animals are kept in almost natural environments here. The park is located along with bada taal in bhopal. The biggest attraction for me was the various birds in the park. As i entered in the park, there were several indian spotbilled ducks swimming in the big lake. As i traveled alongwith the road, i spotted-

  1. Myna
  2. Indian Cormorant
  3. Red wattled lapwing
  4. common kingfisher
  5. white throated kingfisher
  6. lesser whistling ducks
  7. spot-billed duck
  8. black winged stilt
  9. common moorhen
  10. purple swamphen
  11. painted stork
  12. asian openbill
  13. bronze winged zacana
  14. oriental magpie robin
  15. southern coucal
  16. red avadavat
  17. great tit
  18. red vented bulbul
