There is an influence of outdoor microclimate on indoor thermal comfort, all engineers and architects are aware of this fact. In hot humid climatic zone, main issues for thermal comfort is solar gains due to sunlight. With the strengthening emergences of Green Building concepts there is not only a challenge of considering outdoor microclimate issues but to integrate them into the fundamental design and operation of the building. Also, Green Building concepts are raising the quality of the indoor microclimate to account for occupant comfort, satisfaction, and productivity. Outside, streets micro climate is affected by its shape, size, material used, altitude, waterbodies nearby, orientation, built density and greenery around it. In residential areas of new Bhopal, street morphology is an outcome of the semidetached or detached buildings, usually controlled by building construction rule i.e. open spaces around the houses and wide roads. While in old city it is different, narrow and attached road side houses of two-three storeys. The factors which affect the microclimate of the streets are directly affect the outside and inside temperature of the buildings. In this paper we have analyse the outside microclimate through streets of Bhopal city.
