I also visited some of the cities like Bhopal and Gwalior. I visited Gwalior in the month of July. At this time there was so much hot and humidity and visited Bhopal in month of December and again in the month of February. So, I think December or February is the best months to visit in Madhya Pradesh. Famous food includes Poha jalebi , Biryani etc.
