Bhoopali or Bhupali, is a Hindustani classical raga.
It is a pentatonic scale (uses 5 notes in ascending and descending scale).

The same raga in Carnatic music is known as Mohanam.

Aroha & Avaroha

The scale of Bhopali uses only Shuddh swaras.

* Aroha (ascent): Sa Re Ga Pa Dha Sa Re
* Avaroha (descent): Sa Dha Pa Ga Re Sa
