Girnar – 7

17-June-2016

Yet another Girnar darshan…..m greedy to have more…lets see….was about to go in April but last moment, need to cancel….hence booked by looking at confirmed tickets….happens to be full moon day…though I never looked at calendar…only criteria I looked for is departure on Friday evening and start by Sunday afternoon to reach on Monday morning. Nothing much happened in the journey…only thing I got to know that at Gondal station…there is a shop adjacent to S8-S9 boogie….which sells butter milk packet….Rs 10 for half liter….tried… very tasty..as there was no rain….also its cheaper than butter milk sold by local vendors in the train….full 2 glasses in 10 rupees….the vendor sells one glass for Rs 20 :)….anyway checked-in in City Star Rest House….welcomed by care taker….freshen up and just had rest…as was not hungry….Went for a  walk in evening….in the night about 10pm….20-30 people checked-in in guest house….for first time saw this much crowd in the guest house.

18-June-2016

Wake up by 2.50am…ready by 3.40am…..asked care taker to open main grill entry door….in the chowk….there was one tum-tum….he said Rs 50….as I was only passenger in it…..I obliged….and it started….in between we got 2-3 people….reached Girnar Taleti….Started by 3.50am…reached Jain Derasar in 1.15 hrs….reached Ambaji Mata temple in 1.35 hrs….reached Gorakhnath temple in 1.45 hrs….reached Kamandalu kund in 1.53 hrs…reached Shri Dattatraya temple in 2.05 hrs…..temple was closed for Aarti…there was small queue….after aarti….had good darshan….there was no electricity…..so Pujari was showing Datta Paduka’s in torch light…..went to Kamandalu kund….had darshan of Akhand dhuni…had tea sip and started by 6.30am…..at one point, while descending slipped 6-7 steps…but luckily no major injury….reached base by 8.05am….

This time, could not took any photos, as it was not clear and foggy most of the time…

Hopefully will visit for Girnar Parikrama this November.
