Living in Bhopal

Bhopal, the capital of the state of Madhya Pradesh in central India, is known as “the City of the Lakes” due to the natural and artificial lakes within the city. Rich in heritage, Bhopal houses the Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya Anthropological Museum, or Museum of Man, a collection of artefacts reflecting human habitation, whilst the Taj-ul-Masjid Mosque, the largest in India, is a fine example of Moghul architecture. Bhopal is a combination of old and new, rich and poor areas, cutting edge technologies and space research contrasting with ancient markets offering beadwork and hand embroidery. InterNations, the online social hub available to expatriates living and working in Bhopal or elsewhere, is a global network of international professionals who share a desire to socialize with fellow expats living in cities worldwide. Expatriates in Bhopal are welcome to join InterNations and network online with fellow expats in the Madhya Pradesh region, to organize social events and other activities.

Moving to Bhopal

Relocating to a new country can be a stressful and worrying time, and your move to Bhopal will almost certainly raise questions which only those who have themselves undertaken the same process of upheaval can understand and answer. Members of the InterNations community are often able to advice on the subject via online forums and discussion groups on the InterNations website. As an expatriate moving to Bhopal, you may find expatriates in Madhya Pradesh or other parts of India who can give more precise information on relocating, but for general queries, the Expat Magazine, an exclusive publication from InterNations, is a recommended read. With many articles on a wide range of expatriation related subjects, you should find answers to your questions. The InterNations website is ideal for networking, building contacts globally as well as locally, and your search should start before your relocation to ensure you already have online friends to help you through the first few weeks as an expat in Bhopal!

Working in Bhopal

Bhopal is the home of a number of nationally important institutions and multinational companies, and its expatriate community reflects the amalgam of nationalities working in the research and technology sectors. The Indian Space Research Organization, for example, has its Master Control Facility in Bhopal, and the All Indian Institute of Medical Sciences and the Advanced Materials and Processing Research Institute, with biotechnology, chemical engineering and pharmacology departments to the fore, are just some of the leading organizations and institutions in modern Bhopal. Registering with InterNations gives expat professionals in Bhopal the opportunity to network and organize social gatherings and events with like-minded individuals and their families in a trusting and friendly environment. Bharat Bhavan, the main cultural area of Bhopal, has been developed as an arts center, and with the Museum of Man, two theaters, an art gallery and an open-air amphitheater facing the Upper Lake and its water sports facilities, so there is something for every expatriate in Bhopal to enjoy.
