Next we went to a road side food stall near local hospital to stuff ourselves. They served delicious puri bhaji, misal pav and tea. While walking back to hotel, we spotted a secondary school and I had to capture it because of the fact that we are so used to seeing modern schools in cities. The care taker welcomed us inside when he saw us clicking outside the gate. These few things make you fall in love and connect with villages in India. It was time to check out and head to Harihareshwar.Hardly 35 KMS away, we reached there by afternoon heading straight to Shiva temple first. Just on the sidelines of temple is the flawless beach. Sand being too hot at this time of the day can burn your feet. The beach has mud like textured sand which is very soft as it gets compressed when stepped upon. Advise you restrict entering deep inside, as one might get stuck due to ultra soft sand and due to its uneven sea bed.
