Taking this vision forward ‘India City Walks’ organized their first Heritage Walk on the third day of the Madhya Pradesh Travel Mart, 29th October in Bhopal. The three hour Heritage Walk and Sightseeing Experience starting at 6:00 AM covered heritage properties like Iqbal Maidan, Moti Masjid, Sadar Manzil, Sheesh Mahal, Shaukat Mahal, Taj-ul- Masjid and Taj Mahal.
