My Girnar Experiences

January 6, 2018

Girnar-12

My last trip to Girnar for year 2017 on last day of 2017….my 5th this year !!!

This time, my reservation was not confirmed but RAC…though when I booked, it was WL-1, so thought it would be confirmed on 29-Dec-17…but….so had, not so good sleep till morning ….though due to long journey to Junagadh….had good rest…reached Junagadh by 2.30pm….meet Uncle @ City Star Rest House….freshen up…had some rest…in evening went for a walk for almost 2 hrs…had some snacks in evening….had light snack in night…tried to sleep early…..had good sleep for about 3-4 hrs.

31-Dec-17

Wake up @ 1.40am…so another 1hrs to get up…had alarm at 2.50am…ready by 3.50am….went down @ Kalwa chowk….started waiting in one auto stationed…waited for 2-3 minutes…asked driver….how much he will take for special auto…he asked for Rs:60…I said Ok and asked him to get more persons, if he gets in between (not for my money to share :)…but in this wee hours, people were waiting just like me :)…and in between 4 persons joined us….

Started exactly @ 4 am….bowed down on first steep to have good darshan…reached

Shri Gopichand & Raja Bhartuhari Gufa @ 4.43am

Jain Derasar @ 5.11am

Gaumukh Ganga @ 5.17am

Ambaji Mata Temple @ 5.29am

Shri Gorakshanath Temple @ 5.37am

Kamandalu Kund @ 5.46am

Shri Dattatraya Shikhar @ 5.57am

Had good darshan today…it was too crowded, as good season…. lots of people.

While coming back, had darshan @ Kamandalu Kund…had sip of tea..and started for Gorakshanath…had darshan @ temple….reached Amabaji Mata Temple…had good darshan…saw one person in the temple…which I have seen him every time I visited Girnar…so while returning…asked him his name and said, I saw you whenever I am here. His name is Mr.Nilesh (photo attached)….he is from Junagadh and taking darshan @ Ambaji every Sunday from last 14 and half year !!!….started conversation with Nilesh…though he was too fast paced. I was not able to have pace with him…so lost him after Gopichand & Bhartuhari Gufa….reached base @ 8.15am.

Thought to visit “Kashmiri Bapu Ashram” this time…on the base, there is Lambe Hanuman mandir…just opposite to this temple…its about 20-15 minutes walk….full in forest….path started with houses having cows, bufaloos…then its all in forest….was alone…and to be frank, scared as well :)….then found marking on the path…in between…. meet 2 persons….so my path was correct…one of the person updated that Bapu will give darshan by 10am….entered the Ashram…the sevekari asked to have a seat….waiting for 10-15 minutes…was bored so return back without taking darshan of Bapu….People says…he is 110-120 years old….never speaks but communicates using eyes…while returning back one person said in Gujrati that I should wait and have darshan and prasad….let’s see…next time !!

Happy New Year 2018 !!!
