Islamnagar has history behind it. This is a fortified city 11 kms from Bhopal which was founded by the Rajputs who then called it Jagdishpur. In the early eighteenth century, Muslim attackers occupied it and changed the name to Islamnagar. There used to be two palaces which are badly damaged and only remains are left. The walls enclose the village and tell the history of the place. There is a Mughal Water Garden which was constructed by Mughals.
