On the way from Bhopal to Sanchi we observed this board on the Highway and stopped. This is basically the place where the Tropic of Cancer crosses the road. Just a good place to stop for a break and click a few photos.

On the way to Sanchi from bhopal, I have seen the board of Tropic of cancer or kark rekha. I stopped the cab and when my son saw the line he appreciated the lines. A must visit with your children to show them.

I had been there when we were on the way to Sanchi from Bhopal. If you are geography buff you would be thrilled but other wise it is just a place to take some snaps.

The tropic of Cancer crosses the road from Bhopal to Vidisha. The place is clearly marked. Stop there for a minute to realize the feeling of crossing over from one zone to another on the earth's surface.

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.

This line is situated on main road and if you don't pay attention you will miss the same. It's in the Vidisha district. the place should be developed little more so that unknown travelers notice the same.

This place is just a line drawn on the road and a carved stone that highlights that the tropic of cancer you see on the globe/map passes through here. The location is not much of significance and you can miss it easily as you drive...More

Located at main road but not maintained. Government should do some planning for here . It is very unique thing that our state has.
