Travel Alert: Swiss woman gang-raped[edit]

The couple from Switzerland were also robbed of ₹10,000 and a laptop computer. Besides, is camping overnight at a village (in this case, in Datia district) an unsafe idea? --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 03:13, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

P.S. Here's the BBC News article. --Lo Ximiendo (talk) 03:14, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

From "Understand"[edit]

There are some nice highlights in this section, but they might be better placed in "See," and the prose needs to be untangled:

Madhya Pradesh has beautiful cities and historical places are here. One temple is in Indore famous which made of glass. Indore is a commercial center of the agriculture region. The main industries of cotton and Jewelry are in Bhopal. India’s largest Mosque is there. Modern Bhopal was founded in 1970. A king Mohammad in earliest eighteen century ruled there,also Bhopal was the capital of the former princely state of Bhopal. Jain cliff carving is in Gwalior Mansingh was ones the king and a Sikh temple is here.

Khajuraho was the last of 10 cities added, so I move its listing here:

  • 1 Khajuraho — Khajuraho Group of Monuments is a group of Hindu and Jain temples in Madhya Pradesh

Khajuraho is a very important attraction, but it's mentioned in "See". Should it be one of the 9 listed cities, and if so, which one should it replace? Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:44, 13 March 2020 (UTC)

Other destinations[edit]

This was the 10th "Other destination":

  • 1 Van Vihar National Park — in Bhopal city, managed as a modern zoological park.

There should be no more than 9 per Wikivoyage:Avoid long lists, and in any case, a municipal zoo is not a separate destination but a place to go while in Bhopal, and it should be listed in the Bhopal guide; it should not have its own article. Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:55, 13 March 2020 (UTC)
