  • Indore – Omkareshwar (90kms.)

    Board an Indigo airlines flight from Mumbai at 1010 am and on arrival at the Indore airport meet with our tour manager. Indore is known as the street food capital of India, but we save that for later and move south east towards one of the twelve Jyotirlingas, Omkareshwar. On our way though we make a stop at the Chidiya Bhadak Waterfall, not so much for the water but to get an idea of the Malwa platue and its landscape in the shadow of the Vindhyas. In the evening we will check in our hotel by the river Narmada. Tonight we will visit the Omkareshwar temple which is on an island formed in Narmada.

  • Omkareshwar-Maheshwar-Mandu-Indore (200kms.)

    The Malwa region in which we will spend our travel time has been ruled by various dynasties out of which the Maratha dynasty was the last. Today our journey will take us to Maheshwar, and its fort from where Smt. Ahilyabai Holkar ruled the Malwa kingdom. We will spend some leisure time knowing more about the Holkar rule and enjoy the views of the Narmada from the fort. We will make a short stop at a local textile association to view the weaving techniques prominent since the Holkar’s. Later after lunch, drive to Mandu. If Maheshwar was the centre of the Maratha rule in Malwa, Mandu was the same for the Mogul rule.

    On arrival in Mandu we will visit the architectural marvel called Jahaz Mehal with a well-informed local guide. We will also on our way out of Mandu observe some other monuments of this heritage town on a hill. The Exit will be through one its many Darwaza’s. Madhya Pradesh is famous for its Wheat and later in the after as we drive to Indore we will pass acres of wheat farms, maybe even stop at one to see it up close. In the evening arrive in Indore for dinner and check in. Indore, is the street food capital of India, and those who still have an appetite to try the local sweets and snacks can join our tour manager to visit the Sarafa Bazaar street, which is at the center of the Indore food scene.

  • Indore-Ujjain Experiences –Indore (160kms)

    After a leisurely breakfast at the hotel we will start with our day trip to Ujjain. Though Ujjain is a temple town, our idea is to keep the day full of variety and in doing so our first stop will be in a village known for the only Batik textile printing village in India. Bhairugadh village is named after the Kaal Bhairav temple at the outskirts and is famous for its unique Batik art, we will visit a few shops and peep in some houses where women co-op’s run this cottage industry. We will have time to shop and support the villagers. Later we will make a stop at one of the most unique temples not only in M.P but in the whole country. Liquour is offered to the Idol of Shiva inside the temple of Kaal Bhairav.

    Lunch is local with Daal baafla and laddu being the speciality. After lunch we will have time to visit Jantar Mantar one out of the five Giant Sundials in India, which is still working along with the one in Jaipur. The Vedh Shala is known to tell the time with the help of the sun dial, to an accuracy of ½ second. Having observed the astronomical wonder it would be now time to visit the banks of the Kshipra River for the evening pooja. Although not as grand as the pooja on the ghat of the Ganga in Varanasi, the Kshipra Pooja is certainly more peaceful and the evening sky feels like being lit up by the big diyas of the aarti. As we end the day with a drive to Indore, those who wish to still explore the local street food scene can do so, or choose to eat in a restaurant. It must be known that most of the food in Indore is vegetarian.

  • Indore-Departure (35kms.)

    After a late breakfast at the hotel check out and proceed for Indore’s local sightseeing along with yet another chance to savour some of the local food. Indore city is known to greet you with immense art & culture. We will start with a visit to the Lal Bagh Palace, built by the Holkars and inhabited till as late as 1978. The palace and its rooms reflects a more western outlook of the Holkars and its ornate rooms are still well preserved. In its 28 acres of land also stands a rose garden, which in its season is known as one of the finest in India.
    The ‘Chhappan Dukaan’ street is famous for more Indore street food and we will have time to snack here before we head to make a few stops more in the city, which includes a photo stop (traffic permitting) at the Raj Wada Palace.
    Later we will proceed to the airport bidding farewell to our Malwa Experience.
