Day 3

The next day I woke at around 6AM in the morning and went for the darshan. If you went early in the morning for darshan than you will hardly find any rush or line for darshan and within 30 minutes I had the darshan at Trimbhkeshwar Jyotirlinga. This temple is said to have all three Tridev here i.e. Lord Shiva Vishnu and Brahma here together. After having the darshan I went for breakfast and this place is also famous for its breakfast. After having the darshan I decided to continue my journey with third Jyotirlinga which is Gruhneshwar Jyotirlinga.
But in between these two temple two very famous temple lies wiich is Shirdi Sai baba and Shri Shani Sham.
So from Trimbhkeshwar Jyotirlinga I book a tempo Traveller to Shirdi Sai baba which cost me around 200/- rupees and the distance is around 120/- km and it took around 3 hours for me to reach there. As it was Thursday so there was huge line for darshan. So I decided to took a vip darshan ticket which cost me around 200/- rupees but the benefit is I had the darshan in 15 minutes. It was lovely to see and have the darshan of Shirdi Sai baba.
Let me warn you of some people who will try to sell you Prasad and ask you to keep your belongings with them for free. The Prasad they made costs alot and free lockers are easily available in Shirdi.
After having Shirdi Sai baba darshan i enjoyed the lunch at the free bhandara. One can have the meal at any time. The bhandara runs 24*7 on everyday. It never stops.
After having the lunch I went to Shri Shani Sham and took a shared cab. The distance is around 65km and it will cost you around 100/- rupees for two hour journey.
After reaching Shri Shani Sham I went for the darshan and after having darshan I begin my journey for the third Jyotirlinga which is Gruhneshwar Jyotirlinga which is located in Aurangabad city.
From Shri Shani Sham to Aurangabad I took shared cab which cost me around 200/- rupees for 80km and two hour journey. From Aurangabad Stand, Gruhneshwar Jyotirlinga is 35km away and the shared cab took around 110/- rupees.
As it was late in the evening so I went to a lounge and book a room which cost me around 450/- rupees. As the temple was still open and there was hardly any queue for darshan so I went to the temple and had the darshan in 5 minutes and attended the evening aarti. After aarti I went for dinner in the nearer restaurant and after that went for a nap.

Day 4

I woke early in the morning and went for early darshan. There was hardly any queue up there for darshan. I had the best darshan here in my entire journey even did some praying by sitting inside the temple as there was no rush. After having the darshan and having my breakfast I went back to Aurangabad bus stand from Gruhneshwar Jyotirlinga. 3km away from Gruhneshwar Jyotirlinga there is one of the best and famous archeological site named as Ajanta caves. The beauty and the design is astonishing. I visited this Ajanta caves and enjoyed some peace time there. After that booked a shared cab from Ajanta Caves to Aurangabad bus stand and it cost me around 110/- rupees. From Aurangabad bus stand shared cabs easily available for Pune Bus stand or to Shivaji Nagar Bus stand Pune. The both would have cost me around 600/- rupees so I took shared cab and reached Pune by in 5 hours. After taking a nap and I end for local site seeing in Pune and the next day took the flight back to Delhi.
