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.

The place is about 50 kms from Bhopal towards Sanchi. It is located on highway to Vidisha. You need to just get down and have photos.

One can stop by for few minutes on the way from Bhopal to Sanchi (or vice versa) to location said to be where tropic of cancer crosses. One needs to have a watchful eye to ensure it is not missed.
