But still, in the wake industrialization and growth resulting in conflux of people, Bhopal retains its eternal quaintness and charm.

The Begums of the royal family ruled it for almost a hundred years, before Nawab Hamidullah, son of Nawab Sultan Jahan, the third Begum, ascended the throne in 1926. He acceded Bhopal to India in 1947.
