Marble Arch has Bhopal’s Best Views on Display

Marble Arch
Marble Arch, Noor-Us-Sabah Palace, Bhopal

During a recent visit to Bhopal, I stayed at Noor-Us-Sabah Palace, one of the oldest royal residences of the city. Now a plush heritage hotel, Noor-Us-Sabah Palace was once the abode of Sultana Begum Sajida – the mother of Mansoor Ali Khan or Tiger Pataudi. In all fairness, even as a hotel, Noor-Us-Sabah Palace serves like it would, as the private residence for the royal family. So if you desire to get pampered at Saif Ali Khan’s grandparent’s house then this is it. Built by the erstwhile Kings and Nizams, who once lived here, Noor-Us-Sabah Palace is the personification of the old world charm of princely India.

Marble Arch Interiors

Marble Arch being, one such restaurant – that offers you an unrivalled glimpse of the palatial era and the cultural slants of the Regal life. At this restaurant, I discovered a wealthy trove of cultural heritage cloaked in the subtle hues of red and gold. Let not the compact interiors deceive you, but walk right into the outdoor space to enjoy the uninterrupted mountainous views with Bhopal Lake in the sight. Had it not been for a planned day beyond breakfast, I would have spent hours and hours sitting here. On looking on and doing nothing than plainly observing nature.

As for the breakfast menu, I’d say, I was lucky to be here during Ramadan. The menu featured an extensive selection of Mughlai, Indian and continental delicacies. Including Mutton Nalli Nihari, Fish Fingers, potato smileys, sausages, eggs of your choice (Live Station), Tikki station, South Indian food and many other savoury items. In the desserts, there was a variety of bread including deliciously soft doughnuts. 

Breakfast Marble Arch
Breakfast at Marble Arch on the Second Day

The breakfast beverages included milk, tea, coffee and a couple of fresh juices. Everything was freshly prepared and tasted great! More so, because the food was well complemented by unprecedented scenic beauty and antiquated arched architecture.

Marble Arch Ceramic Vase

The royal ambience with an impressive breakfast menu certainly makes this restaurant a perfect place to kick-start your day. I still remember I especially stopped by, to admire the lavish interiors laid with priceless antiques. From the 18th-century Mughal guns depicting conquests to ceramic vases embellished with gold, regal dining takes a whole new turn here. Regardless of the inland grandeur, I decided to have my breakfast by the poolside.

At 7.30 AM, the natural surroundings turn into a magical show curated by nature. Nature’s theatre opens up to birds in transit, flocking together, performing a dance of joy. Thereafter, slowly and gradually, the sky turns golden as the sun rises in the backdrop.

Believe it or not, it’s quite an experience. To reach Marble Arch, walk through the carved wooden doors behind the reception. Until you arrive at a colourful stained glass, that opens up to a world of Nawabi Diner. Breezy in the mornings and warm lit in the evenings, Marble Arch is where you will get far more than what you spend. Like they say, to taste experience to the utmost, reach out eagerly for a newer and richer one.
