Day 3: Back from Ramtek

Yes, this is day 3 and I am still on.

Had a wonderful trip to Ramtek and nearby locations.  We (Kailash and I) reached Kachurwahi last night and headed to Ramtek early morning today.  We visited Khindsi Lake, Nagarjuna Vihara, Nagarjuna hill, Kalidas smarak, Ram Mandir, and then to a nearby fort at Nagardhan.  We didn’t in fact go in the Ramtek town, but visited all unusual locations in the periphery.  We clicked a lot of photos and had a lot of fun.  We could not go to Mansar excavation site because of time restrictions; let us see for the next time.

Nagarjuna Hill is a wonderful place and I had been to it a few years ago.  The great Buddhist philosopher Nagarjuna is said to have spent some time of his life here.  There is also a Buddhist vihara at the base of the hill.  There was a young guy from Japan who came here as a monk in search of peace.  It was too peaceful there, both in the Vihara and atop the Nagarjuna Hill.

Nagardhan, known as Nandivardhan in the medieval India, was a Capital city of the Vakataka dynasty.  The old capital has now remained only as a small village.  The fort is also left in too much negligence by the government.  It is a historical place, we should learn to know its importance.

The return journey was too much of a torture.  I was too tired and the road travel through Kamthi was Itwari was just sucking.  I had a vomiting just after reaching home, but now I’m fine.

Excited about my photos, but will need to do some basic photo-editing and sorting before I upload them, so keep an eye, I will be there soon šŸ™‚  Give me a feedback, I love comments šŸ™‚
