Lucknow or the City of Nawabs sitting on the banks of the Gomti river, is regarded as North India’s cultural capital. ...
Lucknow, The city of Nawabs...A place for history Lover as well as Foodaholic...There are so many places vistit in the city or near by city Like : Imambara(Bhulbhulaiya), Namisharanya, Chandrika Devi, Kukrail, Ambedkar Park, Janeshwar Mishra Park etc.But there are more place to eat then places to visit.. So before going to Lucknow check out the list and make a note wha you want to try and eat and one more thing dont eat before going to anywhere otherwise you will miss yummilicious food... Choose wisely and eat heavily
We started our journey from Lucknow To Naimisharanya around 8o'clock Morning. The distance between these two places are near about 91 KM so if you travel at the consistent speed of 50 KM per hour you can reach Naimisharanya in 2 hours and 12 minutes.How to Reach :There are all faciliies availabe like UP Govt Buses, Train but I like to say that you have to prefer Cab from Lucknow so you can go there in the morning and back to lucknow by the evening without any husstle.
From Agra, leave for the capital of Uttar Pradesh, Lucknow. A foodie's paradise, Lucknow is known for the world-renowned tunday kebabs. But there's much more to explore in this underrated city. Buildings reminiscent of the British Raj, mausoleums, and a bhool bhulaiya (maze) to get lost in this city, make it a fun place to visit.
The journey from Bhairahawa to Lucknow marked the final leg of TON 2017. After crossing the border (which happened surprisingly quick), we traversed 360 km of Indian highways through Gorakhpur and Faizabad to arrive at Lucknow. There was celebratory ceremony marking the conclusion of this epic journey. Receiving certificates of completion made the riders ecstatic and emotional which was evident in farewell addresses by fellow mates and crew members.
The Nepal journey began from Lucknow at the Golden Tulip Hotel. It felt like déjà vu entering the hotel lobby, seeing the riders wait with their riding gear and luggage with curiousity and high hopes in their eyes. Some of the people from the Bhutan team were back again for this one and I could completely understand the excitement in their hearts as we caught up and discussed old episodes.The highlight of the team this time were the 4 female riders who had joined us from Bangalore and Aurangabad. They seemed confident, experienced and ready for the challenging ride with all their charm.Day zero was First aid training by Tarun (Rashtriya Life Saving Society) followed by tour brief by Shawn Dsouza and Rohan Pimpley (RE team) with a thorough Q&A session breaking the ice and setting the tone right for the team to kickstart the journey next day.
We started from Lucknow, aka The City of Nawabs & reached Gaya Junction, the nearest railway station to Bodhgaya after a twelve-hour journey by train. Without any delay, we took an auto-rickshaw to Bodhgaya that is around 17 km away. You can find a number of transport facilities to go Bodhgaya from Gaya Junction.Where to Stay –
Lucknow, also known as the city of Nawabs has developed over the years but hasn't lost its rich cultural heritage. The city is divided into two parts the old city and the new city . The old city primarily consists of the Imambaras (shrines), the monuments, the very famous tundey kababs. The new city has the malls and the parks. There is a startling difference between the two, the new city is cleaner , better roads and it's easier to get a mode of transportation, whereas the old city is dusty and the main mode of transportation is cycle rickshaw, electric rickshaw and shared autos, however, it has most of the places that are worth seeing.

Allahabad enjoys the prestige of being one of the four holiest spots of India and thus host Maha Kumbh in every 12 years...
As I commence this blog I tend to wonder how am I going to put an end to it. The experience of this Excursion is so vast and Mystical that it gives complex to our minuscule lives. I'd never seen such an ebullient environment in my life and it is officially stated as the largest human gathering in the world. People perform bizarre acts in the name of Religion, which they certify as Religious devotion, which to me is amusing and absurd. But then- my thoughts are of an individual! Although it does seem that my tasks to accomplish are in process. My Reincarnation in this lifetime as a Hindu has led me to this festival called the Maha Kumbh Mela 2013 at Allahabad! I felt blessed because to Hindus this event is imperative. I mentioned about my lecturer from "Delhi School of Photography" Mr. Jotirmoy Das in my First blog and his persuasive nature. After the two trips I took with him I was sure of him to baffle everyone, so much that it has evolved into a talent from his nature and somehow I'm enthralled by it now. But when he spoke to me about this Photography Jaunt the tone was different. It was so genuine as if the Head of a Religious Community defined Proclivity for Religion. And when you are at a start of your creative career every prospect seems enticing even if you have to click pictures or write an article amidst a Dunghill. With his sincere coaxing I agreed and when he told me that I have to board the train from Old Delhi Railway Station, the thought of going there was repugnant to me. But being a natural traveller that I'm there's always adrenaline that gets me going and I love to challenge comfort sometimes. When I reached the Rusty Red most crucial Station of the country I wonder where People come from, there are so many of them that anyone will think of it as a whole universe instead of a railway station. At the station I met Mr. Das along with Mr. Deepak Virmani , the owner of Delhi School Of Photography and 3 American Educators teaching at The American School, New-Delhi and Mr.Vijay. All of us being Travel & Photography enthusiasts out to explore an overwhelming event seemed nonetheless than National Geographic employees. The moment I heard that my ticket is unconfirmed I was infuriated and couldn't help with an outburst of profanity. I agree that I have a habit to condemn my country because of poor Infrastructure, Government and much more. But I have decided that this habit shall soon stop. Mr. Das told me to just board the train with no doubt assuring me that he would take care of it and I must say with his glib talking to the Ticket Checker I was stunned. It took no time to settle the adverse situation. The train Journey was marvelous probably because of the company that I had, The Americans with us were engrossed in playing board games such as chess and some mathematical game which was out my league but I did try my best to play and compete despite being a mathematical illiterate. The mobile network was atrocious in the train hence I couldn't speak with my girlfriend who now happens to be an ex-girlfriend, she had to mail me a goodnight message hoping I will get it by the time I reach Allahabad and I was a young man who was in love and just a message could put me to sleep and so it did indeed a tranquil sleep. I opened my eyes to the beautiful light of Allahabad's dawn and saw millions of people scattered throughout the city with a firm belief to take a dip in the living goddesses river called The Ganga or Ganges to wash away their sins or rather as they say 'It's a direct entry to heaven sir'. The campsite, our abode for the next couple of days was about an hour and half away from the railway station. For the next five days we lived like Gypsies in tents, there were people from all over the Globe. It was a land of hash, everyone just smoked joints & chillums, from sadhus to tourists. I hardly inhaled any fresh air instead it was so much hash that I myself felt like a passive charras smoking sadhu. The sadhus have a quaint way of expressing their devotion towards religion. Some of them have sacrificed their arms by keeping it in air and not cutting their nails, some sadhus tie a rope to their testicles and lift up seventy kilos of bricks; one particular sadhu applied the same procedure but tied it to pull a car with people in it. They call these acts 'Yoga' to suppress their sexual desire. Some haven't slept in a decade and just been standing. Men who aspire to become sadhus have to give up all contact with their families and become a devotee to a Guru and get their heads shaved. I was unaware that there is even a criterion for the path to spirituality. The methodology for God's creation of the Universe should be un- equivocal, God has sent each of us on earth as per our karmic deeds from our past lives. Although I don't hold any special rights to say this or to impart the limited knowledge I have but I just say what God has made me feel. We all our God's children, in-fact God is our only parent, we live our lives according to how they want us to live. To me sacrificing things to the extent sadhus do is not necessary, we could just practice the art of simplicity and be good human beings, love each other and do what we love and that's how God will be with us constantly. I'm not saying that these sadhus are wrong; after all it is their personal belief and maybe God wants them to be this way. But just looking at them was an adventure. Their dedication was inspiring that I could stay there for some more days and just contemplate them, but even they would have left. We all depart for our cocooned shelters eventually. I want to share some important information. The Maha- Kumbh Mela happens every 12 years, specifically when the planets Sun, Moon and Jupiter are in a particular alignment. The entire set up of Mela was constructed before the event, so it was a temporary arrangement, but it was so large that it could be seen from space. And the Legend says it that the rivers Ganga and Yamuna met they together met the river Saraswati and that is when the battle between gods and demons occurred and hence the drop of immortality nectar was spilled. I don't know if I learnt something from this trip, but being there made me feel as if God told me that people listen to him because God hears us all when we talk to them, And we all shall appreciate and have gratitude for the beautiful life we have.
3. PrayagTHEN: Lord Rama along with his wife Sita and brother Lakshman crossed the river Ganga from here to go beyond their kingdom. The trio spent some time at the Ashram of Sage Bharadwaj here, before travelling ahead.

If history, art and architecture spell a perfect holiday for you, Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh is definitely a must visit! ...
Dominated by its majestic hilltop fort, Gwalior is a perfect starting point for the exploration of Madhya Pradesh. Where Gwalior Fort defines the city's skyline, the elaborate Jai Vilas Palace defines the growing importance of the city after independence. The towering Jain sculptures and humble archaeological museum are places of great interest.What to see1. Start your day by visiting Gwalior fort. Known as the pearl of Indian fortresses, this fort is majestic and exquisite. There are two entries to the fort: the eastern side is an uphill trek, which gives you a formidable view of the fortress while you can take the car up the western side, all the way to the Urvai Gate. You can stop and see towering Jain sculptures en-route the western gate entry. Entry fees for adults is ₹75 and for children is ₹40. The fees for foreigners is ₹250. The visiting hours are from 8am to 6pm.2. Visit the state archeological museum next. Housed in the 15th-century Gujari Mahal palace, the museum's entrance is flanked by extraordinary 14th-century sardulas (mythological man-lion creatures) and inside are large collections of Hindu, Jain and Buddhist sculptures. Entry fees is ₹10 for Indians and ₹100 for foreign nationals. The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, between 10am to 5pm.3. End the day with a fascinating sound and light show at the Gwalior Fort. It is an excellent way to make your kids learn about the proud history of this culturally-rich city. There are two shows, 6.30pm to 7.30pm in Hindi and 7.30pm to 8.30pm in English. The cost is ₹75 per person.
The best time to travel in Madhya Pradesh is during the winter season. Like most of the states in Central India, MP suffers with extreme summers and traveling during May and June is walking through burning fire. So I took a train for Gwalior at 10:00 PM in the night and in six hours I was standing at Gwalior station surrounded by autowalas.Batesar is 35 kilometres away from Gwalior. The name Batesar is not of a village but actually the valley where these temples were found. The name derives from the biggest temple of the lot, The Bhuteshwar temple which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. This region also lies in the heart of the Chambal region that was once ruled by the dacoits. Time has passed by, some of them still wander in this region and if you hire a local vehicle from Gwalior, your driver will end up telling you some interesting stories.
Gurudwara Data Bandi Chhor is one of the most important gurudwara in India. It is situated near Manmandir Palace and Sas bahu temple in Gwalior fort.This documentary was made for a college assignment.
City at a glance Half a day had already passed in a six hour super-fast train journey from Delhi to Gwalior. Should I fill my stomach in Gwalior and then go places or do the other way around? The dilemma hovered around my head for quite sometime, but was solved when I soon found myself amidst the bustling streets of Naya Bazaar, the oldest market in town. Following the incessant cramming of people on the way, it was hard to stop for a meal. Luckily, a hygenic restaurant Vyanjan Family restaurant, caught my eyes. It stood enroute to Jai Vilas Palace - a palace that depicts the royalty of Scindia family in the most incredible manner, stretching across with the big lawn and a stunning variation in interior decor over the generations.

If you like history, culture and nature, then you will love Jabalpur. Located in Madhya Pradesh, the city has a lot to o...
Being born and brought up in Kolkata, for me summer is all about losing every single battle fought against monumental level of humidity. Summer is all about producing few gallons of sweat in just a minute. This is a time of year, I stay the least productive. My body refuses to hit the gym, my mind denies to go out in sun and witness beautiful interplays of natural world. I lock up most of my summer leisure time in air conditioned room, reading some good books or watching online travel videos. The seasonal appearance of mango, lychee and cola ice cream in market is the only positive thing that connects me to this season. But this stereotypical, unreasonably boring image of summer switched its gear once I visited Jabalpur this May. The purpose was a short family visit and not a holiday. So I may disappoint you if you are particularly looking for a detail travel itinarary of Madhya Pradesh. Instead, I would share my experience, how this short trip changed my deep rooted perception about ruthless tropical summer.
I was in Jabalpur for a Marriage ceremony. The function was over in a day and I had few more hours left to explore the city. After wandering in city for a while I planned a trip to 'Bhedaghat', I have heard about this place a lot since my childhood. And so the trip was on !
A friend's wedding took me here and hence I planned a solo trip in MP. A state which I had neglected, contemplating about safety and of course not so friendly people. This trip taught me a lesson, how such prejudices make you miss some of the beautiful places in the country. I traveled to Jabalpur from Pune a day before,attended the wedding and reached back to Jabalpur so the stay at night or travel to Khajuraho at night.A disclaimer for those who don't know, the MP state transport has given licenses to private players to ply buses. More about the bus journey in some time.My Plan A was to travel to Khajuraho by bus at night and save time. I reached Jabalpur bus stand, and bus to Khajuraho stood there. Looking at the bus I decided not to do an overnight journey. The journey from my friends place to Jabalpur was not at all comfortable, I was not in a mood to do an overnight journey like that.Plan B - Reached Jabalpur railway station booked a retiring room. I decided to travel by early morning train to Satna and get a bus to Khajuraho from there. The online blogs mentioned a bus every half an hour and travel time would be 3-4 hrs, appeared simple and safer.Travel Itinerary :Jabalpur onlyExpenses :Stay in retiring room - 300Dinner at railway station - 55
I am living in Indore (M.P.) and enjoy short highway and off-road rides every now and then. So, basically, this trip was part of my "home-run". I was thriving to do a solo bike trip and was waiting for an occasion. To full-fill this wish I decided to visit my hometown, Jabalpur (M.P.) for Diwali. This article describes my journey back from Jabalpur to Indore.So, basically, if you want to go to Indore from Jabalpur, you need to reach Bhopal by any possible route. From Bhopal to Indore, its a straight (and best) route. The distance between Jabalpur and Bhopal is approximately 320 Kms and varies based on the route you choose. From Bhopal, Indore is only 190 Kms. Initially, I planned to do Jabalpur-Bhopal in one day, take a night halt in Bhopal and leave for Indore the next morning.I decided to start early in the morning. When I was coming to Jabalpur from Bhopal, the rout I chose really tested my butt and patience. So, I consulted a few guys about the best route for going back. So, it looks like this - Jabalpur - Damoh- Sagar - Bhopal - Dewas - Indore.I left from Jabalpur at 07:00 AM sharp. As this was my first solo ride and although I was carrying a few spares (my friends suggested this and even gave me the spares from their RM-Goa 2015 trip), I wanted to reach Bhopal before sunset. Yes, I am a slow rider because I believe in "Prevention is better than Cure" philosophy.

Famously known for freedom fighter Rani Lakshmi Bai, Jhansi is an integral part of India's historical past. Considered t...
In the morning after breakfast, we come back to Jhansi and Visit Rani Laxmi Bai Fort.From my childhood, I always listen"बुंदेले हरबोलों के मुँह हमने सुनी कहानी थी,खूब लड़ी मर्दानी वह तो झाँसी वाली रानी थी"and admire Rani Laxmi Bai for her bravery... and today is the day when I am going to see her fort and the place where she fought like a real warrior or you can say like a lioness
Jhansi, the Biggest city in Bundelkhand which is quite developed as compared to other cities in Bundelkhand with a good market, an education hub, transport everything which a city need.We reach here early morning we were confused that we go to Orccha or stay here and roam and see the local site first...Finally, we decided to go to Orchha because we have returning ticket from Jhansi.The distance between Jhansi to Orchha is around 20KM but Jhansi is in UP and Orchha is in MP. You can Book Tempo or Cab for a full day or you can find Tempo which takes around 50rs and leave you in Orchha. If you are 3 4 people and want to come back in evening then I suggest booking for the whole day because in eve It's difficult to find convenience from Orchha to Jhansi.
बुंदेले हरबोलों के मुँह हमने सुनी कहानी थी,खूब लड़ी मर्दानी वह तो झाँसी वाली रानी थीI think most of us would have heard this famous refrain from Subhadra Kumari Chauhan's poem 'Jhansi ki Rani'. But only when you visit here do you realize that the city is a living testament to the valour of its illustrious queen.
Start your journey in Jhansi, a city renowned for being one of the first cities to wage war against the British for the independence of our country. Visit the historic Jhansi Fort, Rani Mahal, Mahalaxmi Temple and the Government Museum.
Who doesn’t want to visit the land of the courageous lady Rani Laxmibai, one who died defending her land from the great British powers. From the station one can book a car for the entire sightseeing including Orcha and Jhansi along with spare time for lunch all for just 800/- Remember to bargain much and learn the time slot they are allowing you, they have a tendency to make you hurry up unnecessarily.Take time in hand before visiting this place since after 4 pm the museums close and you will miss visiting this place as it happened with me.
Jhansi, my hometown, place where the Revolutionary war took place to fight against freedom. So it would be biased if I don’t write about it. Let’s just take you to the 4-century old fort with a long history.Jhansi Ka Quila(Fort Jhansi) holds a remarkable place in the pages of history. The historic city which was ruled by Marathas and later the Princely State of Jhansi from 1804 till 1853, when the territory became a part of British India
Nagpur (Maharastra) to Jhansi (Uttar Pradesh) - 9 hours - from here you can find two routes - one NH 44 ( forest route and total 605 km) and other is through Chhindwara, Narsingpur and Sagar around 595 km. I used second route. Overall road is good well maintained double road without traffic. But be careful check your vehicle condition well. On this near Chhindwara you will find Simariya Kalan - 101 feet Statue of Hanuman. Take care of overall road, good road means chances of accidents more. I saw two major accidents while i am on the way. Take a halt at Jhansi (as per my idea per a day 600km drive more enough). Especially all these roads prefer day journey.

Sanchi happens to be the best of all discoveries made by Alexander Cunningham in 1851. He then went on to establish the ...
The Great Sanchi Stupa The stupa located at Sanchi is one of the best preserved Buddhist structures in India. Located at a distance of some 40 kms from Bhopal, this stupa was constructed over the relics of Lord Buddha by King Asoka.
Sanchi a tiny town is 50km away from Bhopal- the capital of M.P. the Buddhist stupa build by king ashoka are one of the oldest stone work of Indian history, every year CHETHIYAGIRI festival is celebrated here around Dusshera when lots of Monks arrive here from SriLanka, if you are looking for peace this place is definitely for you.
Day 2:Distance: ~40kms from BhopalNext day we left for Khajruaho ,after exploring Bhopal and Bhimbetka. On our way crossed the line of Tropic of Cancer and headed towards Sanchi. It took us around 30 minutes to reach.
Sanchi is situated in district Raisen, Madhya Pradesh. It is about 49 Kms from Bhopal, capital of Madhya Pradesh.Best time to visit --> November to AprilInterest--> ArchitectureTravel --> Nearest airport and railway station is BhopalStupas are well conserved in Sanchi. This place attracts archaeologist.There is also a Sanchi stupa museum established under the campus having many sculptures artifices for visitors.A Place to visit for family, friends, Architecture lovers, Archaeologist, treasure hunter( you never know what can be found anywhere).
I reached Sanchi and stopped at Gateway Treat, Sanchi, Madhya Pradesh Tourism Resort. I called my parents and informed them that their son is alive (Indian parents, I tell you :D). Before visiting Sanchi, I always thought that I can't visit a place like this, not my cup of tea. But, after actually passing through the town..... I still think the same ;-).The road between Sanchi and Bhopal is a gift for the riders. Empty road, few lovely and sweet curves, greenery. The only problem was the heat. I started thinking about the reason behind the high temperature and just then I crossed a big stone board
Frequented by many Indian and foreign tourists, Sanchi is a treat for those interested in cultural history. Sanchi is deemed as one of the most organized structures with the best architectural design dating back to the medieval period. For those not interested in medieval architecture, the calmness and serenity the place offers is a reason enough to pay a visit. Sanchi Stupa is surrounded by a railing with four carved gateways facing all the four directions. The sculptures show scenes integrated with the daily life of Buddha. A careful examination of these sculptures reveals a lot about the life during those times. Depending on one’s interest in history and art, one can spend a good 2-3 hrs at the site. Owing to its status as a world heritage site, the stupa sees an outpour of tourists over the weekend, therefore for those willing to explore the site in intricate detail, weekdays are preferable.
