MP Tour 

Ujjain: Famous Mahakaleshwar temple 



5th Dec 2005 - left Mandu's Roopmati Hotel at 7:00am and drove stright to Indore (9:30 am) about 100Kms away, to withdraw cash from an ATM and fill diesel for car.

From Indore went on to Ujjain and visited the famous temple at Noon.

A local priest took me to inside the Sanctum & made a quick tour of the smaller temples around the courtyard

I left Ujjain at 12:30pm not stopping to see the many other temples of Ujjain that were listed in my Guide book. From Ujjain I drove south-west to Dewas and then continued on NH-86 heading for MP capital Bhopal. 

However on seeing a nice road-side Motel, while passing Sehore some 40kms before Bhopal around 4:20PM decided to stop and stay the night there.  The Hotel Crescent was quite decentone with an attractive garden and a nice DBL room for Rs 400/- a night. 

Today I had logged a total of 322 kms from Mandu to Sehore via Ujjain.

Tomorrow plan to go Bhopal and Sanchi and Vidisha.
