This spot comes in the way of going from Bhopal to Sanchi. Always heard about this in geography class so interesting to see in real life. There isn't anything else to see around so doesn't take more than 5 mins to visit.

It was a wonderful experience standing on the tropic of cancer. Something that we have studied in books since childhood.

The Tropic of cancer can be seen enroute to Sanchi from Bhopal as the line passes here. A small stopover for a picture.

The "Tropic of cancer" was okay for a stop over on the way from Bhopal to Sanchi and do some pics. But nothing more.
