Take the quaint city of Sagar, for instance. Its original name Sougar combines the words ‘Sou’ (hundred) with ‘Garh’ (forts), alluding to times when numerous small forts dotted the entire region. Sagar is a beautiful weekend getaway from Bhopal, located 200 km away from the capital city. An easy drive away from the chaos of the city will bring you to Sagar’s pristine waterfalls, cascading lakes, and ancient temples.
Sagar is called Lake City for a good reason! The gorgeous Lakha Banjara Lake and its peaceful waters are a popular attraction in the city With rapid development and urbanization taking over, the lake offers a refreshing spot of calm and fresh air for the residents of the city.
Revisit ancient history with a trip to the beautiful Pateria Ji temple in Garhakota.

With idols 7 feet high and spires that tower 50 feet above, the temple is a remarkable sight to behold.

Another site worth paying a visit to is the town of Makronia. It contains a dargah of Bujurg Hazrat Sayyed Makraan Saha Wali Rahmatullah Alleh. Makronia is also home to the fabled Osho Hill, where Acharya Rajneesh himself is believed to have spent time doing meditation.
