In the month of January, I planned to visit ancient city of Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. I reached Indore, nearest airport, by evening and took a cab to Ujjain. But I completed my Mahakaleshwar and Omkareshwar darshan in one day. I had full one day in hand before my return flight. The cab driver suggested me to spend my day at Mandu, just 100 km from Omkareshwar. I was doubtful because I had no knowledge about the place. But driver assured me that it’s safe and worth a visit. All excited to explore a new place, I agreed and we started our journey towards Mandu in evening.
It was a wonderful ride until we entered dharam puri road, after which it got scary. I wanted to check GPS if we are on route but beauty of GPS – it does not work when most needed. I was regretting my decision. I asked the cab driver if there are any decent places to stay and confidently he said- “O! yes. Plenty.” At around 9 pm, I reached hotel.
