Considered to be one of the greenest cities in the country, Bhopal, is a place that one cannot afford to leave off their...
Places to see in BhopalThe origin of this city dates back to the 11th century, when Raja Bhoja of the Parmara dynasty formed his capital Bhojapal, between two beautiful manmade lakes. As we drove from the airport to my friend's home on the Kolar Road, we popped our head out of the window multiple times, to gape at the heritage buildings and the beautiful upper and lower lakes that sped past us. “There is so much to see in Bhopal, you'll forget all the sulking in no time,” my friend quipped. I took comfort in her prophecy and soon found myself drawing out an itinerary for the next couple of days. As I write this piece, I feel mostly healed and the heart is pumping fit and has made its way to a speedy recovery, which makes me think that the Bhopal plan worked. So, here's where we went.
It was a cloudy beautiful sunday morning and a perfect weather for bike trip. I was at my balcony and taking my tea around 6:30 am. As i am travel freak these small things like at that time sun is about to rise and several birds chanting very calmly that encourage's me to think about my passion and took some time for bike trip. I was planning for my trip to mandav for the long time it took me on front to finally decided to go for a bike trip.

Over the day, I met couple of guys who were traveling to Delhi for an interview, they are going there for the first time and I was showing off my Delhi skills and must see places to them. Then I told them about my reason for traveling and like every other friend of mine, they were also dumbstruck.By the end of the day the balance amount was Rs3850.

Honestly , while speaking a word ‘TRAVEL ‘ the first thought comes in my mind is ‘ LIFE IS A BOOK , AND THOSE WHO DO NOT TRAVEL READ ONLY ONE PAGE ’ i mean life is nothing without travelling and this is what i experienced in my journey . we explores several new places, discovers various tricks and tips of how interacts with different people of different places, learn various cultures and living stratagy life. Hence i can say that don’t judge any person by asking his/her education ,judge his/ her by how much he/she traveled.so guys ,now i come to my experience of my journey from BHOPAL to SOMNATH .That was a time of january , a climate was pretty awesome in those days. my exams were just going to end . i was reading newspaper in morning and there was a advertisement of gujarat tourism, that ad was proper organised and attractive that gave me a idea to plan for travel in gujarat. so i decided to travel somnath .after a day my exams were end and also my 2 friend wanted to join me in my trip ,so i was happy. Now the problem was that ,we need to took our journey as soon as possible, and we decided to take our journey from tomorrow. due to lack of time we could not arrange rail reservation so we decided to travel by bus .
Jehan Numa Palace Hotel's Italian restaurant La Kuchina serves delightful Italian food. Pay a visit to their bakery called Cafechino for some sinful desserts. Also, drive along the main lake on VIP road, go to Nadir Colony to spot beautiful age-old mansions, stroll around in Char Imli in the evenings and you'll have a wonderful time in this city.

After halted two nights we decided to return back to our home. we will never forget this trip as we learn lot of things and gained some mature advises. MANDAV is great place for 2 days or 3 days budget trip as we only spent 2000 rs per person in our whole trip.I really recommand all to visit once there to feel something different which will never felt anywhere else.thank you so much guys. holasee u guys soon with new adventures. bbyeBANJARA.
I decided to go for a trip so i contacted with my friends and at last we were 4 now. 2 for bhopal and 2 from indore. we packed our bags and started our journey at 8 am. As indore in 200 km from bhopal it took 4 and a half hour to reach there. we were at indore now at 12:30 pm. It was great state highway between bhopal and indore at lead as so fast.So now we halted for some time and approx 2 pm. we again started our journey from indore.
Enjoy Holi celebrations in Indore.Holi is not a one–day affair in Indore. After 5 days from Holi, the event of Rangapanchami is organised but it is not the usual Holi colours that paint the atmosphere around, rather it is the colour of music that fills the air. Even the local municipal corporation splashes colour mixed water on the roads of Indore. It is believed that the Maratha Holkars, who conquered the state, brought with them the Marathi tradition of Rangpanchami- where the colors are played on the fifth day.
Finally, at 06:25 PM, I was standing in my Paying Guest House's parking.I got just one word for the route - Serene. I didn't take any pictures in between apart from the images I posted. I was in a bit hurry, as well as I didn't want to ruin the experience. After travelling through the route, I promised myself (just like I did 3 months back that I will go to Jabalpur by road all by myself) that I will revisit this whole route, I will visit each and every natural, historical spot, and then I will capture the serene beauty in some mere images. I want to travel on the same route with people who always inspire me and are my co-riders and family - Mr Akash Vyas (I owe you for the spares and saddle bag), Mr Manish Phillips (he actually called me before the trip and gave me some last minute tips) and Mr Shivendra Shrivastava (man who taught me riding, but I turned out to be a bad student).
AFTER also visiting ahmedabad in very short term we arrived at INDORE next evening and than to BHOPAL.So that was our JOURNEY, it took seven days to complete a travel. Almost 3300 km had travelled by us.One thing i noticed that people from GUJARAT are very collaborative and helpful ,they guided us in every step where we need that. GUJARAT is really a great place and yet need to be explored .I on behalf of me (RAJAT JAISWAL ) and my 2 friends named ( ALOK GADEM & UPENDRA GAUTAM ) are very thankful for the people of GUJARAT. specially a Cab driver and Aunt met at BHUJ . I really admire for your precious help. AGAINTHANK YOU VERY MUCHyou can also question me for related to this gujarat tour. i will admire to guide u.email – email@example.com

19th to 22nd October a long Diwali weekend. I was by then well settled in Allahabad and was eagerly waiting to make a trip to the 17th Indian state on my list - Madhya Pradesh. I planed this two day trip to Khajuraho.Since no direct trains were available on 19th I got a current reservation ticket till Mahoba aboard the 11108 Bundelkhand Express. The train was scheduled to arrive at 10 pm but was an hour behind in Allahabad. I reached Mahoba at around 4 am next morning. From Mahoba I continued my journey on 22448 UP Sampark Kranti Express. The slip route from Mahoba to Khajuraho takes one across the beautiful Bundelkhand plateau. I reached Khajuraho station at around 7 am. I hopped onto a share auto that would drop me near the Western group of temples 10 km away(auto fare is usually rupees 10 per person for a share ride).Khajuraho is located in the Bundelkhand region of Central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh. The town is situated within a picturesque back drop of the Vindhya Mountain Range and is surrounded by Khodar river in the south and Ken river in the northeast.As of today Khajuraho is well known for its ancient temples and erotic sculptures. Set within a dense forest of palm the group of temples were discovered by British army engineer in 1830. Originally said to be 85 in total, only 22 have survived time. These temples were built between 10th and 12th Century by the Chandela dynasty. The temples are dedicated to Hinduism and Jainism and have been divided into three groups: Western group, Eastern group and Southern group of temples. They are a part of UNESCO World Heritage site.
On day four of your journey, leave Orchha and head towards Khajuraho, 180km from Orchha, approximately a three to four hour drive away. Famous for its group of temples with erotic sculptures, Khajuraho is a popular destination among both Indians and foreigners. Built between 950AD to 1050AD, the temples are stunning and demand attention of even the most uninterested tourist. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the temples here display various forms of sculpturesdepicting meditation, spiritual teachings, kinship, wrestling, royalty and most significantly, erotic art.What to see1. Visit the Western Group of Temples first, the most striking and well-preserved temples in the city. Entry fees to the Western Group of Temples is ₹30 for Indian nationals and ₹500 for foreigners. There are no fixed timings to visit the temples, but they are open from sunrise to just before sunset.2. You can end the day with the sound and light show, narrated by Bollywood icon, Amitabh Bachchan, every evening. Tickets cost ₹200 for adults and child ₹100 for children (Indians) and ₹400 for adults and ₹250 for children (foreigners). The show is conducted in both English and Hindi and timings are 6.30pm in English and 7.40pm in Hindi.
In Khajuraho, learn the art of Kama Sutra through the delicate but intricate carvings on the temples. The stunning sculptures are living proof of the advanced thinking and ideologies of our ancestors. Don't be put off by guides or kids giggling at the erotic carvings. Khajuraho is standing proud, showing off to the world how us Indians mastered the art of lovemaking.
Looking for a blend of antiquity, beauty, and marvelous art? Planning a short and crisp tour to take a break from your tiring work?Make it immensely worthy. Here is a place which perfectly makes your trip antique yet memorable. The place Khajuraho reminds you of beautiful, artistic temples in the marvelous city of Madhya Pradesh. It is one of the most visited historical sites and one of the best tourist places in Madhya Pradesh occupying a spot on every foreign traveler's list. Let's explore more of this heavenly historic beauty...
KhajurahoThe third day was the show-stopper. If I had to describe Khajuraho in one word, it would be - Breathtaking. The temple architecture was nothing less than awe-inspiring. It breathed of the aura of grandeur. The statues with their intricate carvings seemed to dance & talk of the bygone era of the Chandellas.
1. Travel to the heart of India in KhajurahoA convenient place for trip near Delhi, Khajuraho remains a trending destination to visit during winters. Travellers can board a direct overnight train to Khajuraho from Nizamuddin Railway Station, Delhi. The 22 temples constructed by the rulers of Chandela dynasty between 950 AD and 1050 AD still survive and can be your window to learning the cultural nuances that are part of India's rich history.
This article is about my most memorable trip Khajuraho, one of the most popular tourist places in Madhya Pradesh. Famous for its erotic sculptures, this place is best example of ancient architectures in the world.The temples built by the Chandela Rajputs are depicting various concepts of art, meditation, lifestyle etc. The unparalleled beauty of its sculpture make it one of the famous World Heritage Sites in India.

Why it is still number 1 Pilgrimage for Hindu. Too many question which were unanswered till i visited this year Ujjain.

My lovely Mom and as usually, soft hearted and red eyed, my Papa. We boarded the train for Ujjain from ludhiana . After few minutes of boarding, i remembered chetan's 'three mistake...'

The credit went for crying and screaming to all devil kid. Who the hell, wrote," kids are innocent".We reached right time at Ujjain. It was 11:30 am. We grappled to get off the coach.

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.
Travel Itinerary :Left to Jhansi from Orchaa by share auto - 30-40 minsJhansi to Gwalior by train - 4 hrsExpenses :Auto to Jhansi - Rs 50Train ticket to Gwalior from Jhansi - rs 110Food - Close to Rs 100 per meal. Fortunately, ate at a friends place in Gwalior

The City of Rajputs, Bundi, maybe not as popular as other cities in Rajasthan, but nevertheless is no less captivating. ...
From Delhi to Bundi
DAY 02 - JAIT SAGAR LAKE, SUKH MAHAL, MEERA SAHAB DARGAH=> On the second day, after breakfast, take a leisurely stroll around the old quarters of Bundi to explore this vibrant blue city of Rajasthan! The local life, street life along with beautifully colored and decorated houses are great to explore.
DAY 01 - GARH PALACE, TARAGARH FORT, STEPWELLS, NAWAL SAGAR=> Start the day early with a heavy breakfast as you would be going to explore two most elaborate and historically important landmarks of the Bundi town.=> First, visit Garh Palace or Bundi Palace, which should not take more than 1.5hrs. Bundi Palace is famous for its lavishly drawn frescos and murals on the walls. The best part of the palace is the Chitrashala or the Umeed Mahal which has magnificent frescos drawn over the walls, from floor to ceiling. This is a UNESCO world heritage part of the palace and is unparalleled to anything else in Rajasthan.
9] Ummaid Bagh, Bundi The Ummaid Bagh Resorts is a farm situated on the banks of lake Jait Sagar. The resort is just 2km away from Bundi city and it is surrounded by mountains and a lake on all three sides. It is home to many migratory birds in winter. You will find a beautiful garden and BBQ facilities along with car rental facility. Guests can enjoy traditional Rajasthani cuisines at The Lake View Restaurant and room service is also available for those who prefer to dine in privacy.Price range: ₹ 3,463 - ₹ 5,515
I had no expected to see waterfalls in Bundi, but I saw one. Ramgarh is 50 kilometers away from Bundi and the manager of my guest house was nice enough to help me reach that place. His friend took me to the Ramgarh waterfall. The cascade is a gorgeous mighty sight to behold, as it rains the water level on the top of the mountain increases and the volume of the waterfall increases. This waterfall is known to be an adventure spot as it makes a perfect plunge pool. If you know swimming, you can jump from the top and dive straight in the water. I saw a couple of foreigners making the jump, I decided to enjoy the view from a corner. Although you cannot do it in your swimming costumes, the locals are not that open minded. :P
Renowned across Rajasthan as the city that has never been conquered, Bundi is a hidden gem of the glorious state. Hiding in plain sight near Kota, travellers passing through Bundi will be surprised to see the well-preserved historical and architectural sites here.With over 50 baoris (step wells), innumerable havelis, cave paintings and a beautiful waterfall (Bhimlat), Bundi has something to amuse every traveller. Every corner of Bundi holds a surprise, but places such as the Bundi Palace, Chitrashala, Taragarh Fort, Rani ji ki Baori, Dabhai ka Kund, Nawal Sagar, Sukh Mahal and Shikhar Burj, will especially blow your mind.
Gleaming panels of Tikri—the Indian word for mosaic work, where, using scalpels, hand-cut pieces of mirrors are inlayed into frescos on the ceiling and the walls. Even the fl oors narrate the story of crusading elephants in tempered red, black, and white, the art style called izara. Poet Rudyard Kipling mentioned in his Letters of Marque published in 1899, “...but the Palace of Bundi, even in broad daylight, is such a palace as men build for themselves in uneasy dreams—the work of goblins rather than of men.” A great medieval fortifi cation snakes across the hill sides, indigo and white houses spill across the ground, and water reservoirs glisten in the afternoon sun.
Explore BundiThe city retains its old world charm, simplicity and slow pace. Narrow lanes, blue houses, colorful turbans and bright attires of women adding splashes of colors here and there. It is a less visited place by the domestic tourists (unlike to a few predictable places of Rajasthan) though quite popular with the foreign tourists.The place has some fantastic architectural as well as artistic delights like the Garh or Bundi Palace; Chitrashala; Taragarh Fort; over 50 baoris or step well among which Rani ji ki baori is the most well maintained and visited; Dabhai ka Kund. Other attractions are the Nawal & Jait sagar; Sukh Mahal & Museum; 84 pillared centopah and some other monuments like Phool Sagar, Kshar Bagh & Shikhar Burj which are personal property of the descendants of the royal family thus out of touristy domain.Garh or Bundi Palace, is built over a side of the hill. If you see it from the fort (higher above) it seems like it is hanging. Rudyard Kipling described it as ‘the work of goblins rather than of men’
Ten second takeaway: Bundi is a town that you might have a picture of in your head, but often struggle to place in the real world. Dotted with blue houses, lakes, hills, bazaars and a temple at every turn, Bundi is straight out of a fairy tale.It is believed that Nobel laureate Rudyard Kipling penned part of his famous novel Kim in Bundi and this is what he had to say about the Bundi palace,‘Jaipur Palace may be called the 'Versailles of India'. Jodhpur’s House of strife, gray towers on red rock, is the work of giants, but the Palace of Bundi, even in broad daylight, is such a palace as men build for themselves in uneasy dreams – the work of goblins rather than of men.’Places to visit in Bundi: Sukh Mahal, Kshar Bag, Dabhai Kund, Raniji Ki Baori, Taragarh Fort, Lake Jait Sagar.HOW TO REACH BUNDIBy Air: The nearest airport is Sanganer Airport in Jaipur which is about 206 kms away.By Road: Buses to Bundi are available at regular intervals from Ajmer, Bijolia, Bikaner, Chittorgarh, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Kota, Sawai Madhopur and Udaipur.By Train: There is a small railway station in Bundi that is located about 4 kilometres south of the old city. To reach Bundi by train, you will have to change trains at Chittorgarh, which is connected to all major cities in India.Barmer

Finally at dusk we started for Chittorgarh and after around 100 km took a halt for some good food at a dhaba and after that rode again and we were able to complete the ride in one piece and still managed to find a cheap guesthouse for a healthy and sound sleep.
We visited the Chitttorgarh fort in the morning and meanwhile got our bikes checked and done with some minor repairing. The story of how the Rajputs fought bravely and jauhar committed by ladies and children throws a light about the importance of pride and fearless life. The sacrifice given by them can never go unnoticed.

Then we left for Chittorgarh. Yes, google maps again sent us to a short cut wherein my car went into the gutter lines. We reached Rnb 1589. Next day we went for the Chittod Fort, India’s no.1 fort. Chittorgarh Fort is one of the largest forts in India. It is a World Heritage Site. The fort, popularly known as Chittor, was the capital of Mewar and is today situated in Chittorgarh. It was initially ruled by Guhilot and later by Sisodias, the Suryavanshi clans of Chattari Rajputs, from the 7th century, until it was finally abandoned in 1568 after the siege by Emperor Akbar in 1567. The fort was sacked three times between the 15th and 16th centuries; in 1303 Allauddin Khilji defeated Rana Ratan Singh, in 1535 Bahadur Shah, the Sultan of Gujarat defeated Bikramjeet Singh and in 1567 Akbar defeated Maharana Udai Singh II who left the fort and founded Udaipur. Each time the men fought bravely rushing out of the fort walls charging the enemy but lost every time. Following these defeats, Jauhar was committed thrice by more than 13,000 ladies and children of the Rajput heroes who laid their lives in battles at Chittorgarh Fort, first led by Rani Padmini wife of Rana Rattan Singh who was killed in the battle in 1303, and later by Rani Karnavati in 1537 AD Padmini's Palace or Rani Padmini's Palace is a white building and a three storied structure (a 19th-century reconstruction of the original). It is located in the southern part of the fort. Chhatris (pavilions) crown the palace roofs and a water moat surrounds the palace. This style of palace became the forerunner of other palaces built in the state with the concept of Jal Mahal (palace surrounded by water). It is at this Palace where Alauddin was permitted to glimpse the mirror image of Rani Padmini, wife of Maharana Rattan Singh. It is widely believed that this glimpse of Padmini's beauty besotted him and convinced him to destroy Chittor in order to possess her. Then back to Ahmedabad.
