Bhopal Trip: 4. Manua Bhan Ki Tekri

Date: 12th Dec 2015

Visitors: Arun, Rajneesh, Naveen, Sunil and Abhilash

              10:00 AM to 7:00 PM. 1:00 to 3:30 closed. Rope way open full day on Sunday and Public Holidays.
      6 yrs and above Rs 50 for two way trip.
      4 to 6 Yrs Rs 30.
      Rs 35 for one way trip.

3rd place we visited after Van Vihar and rashtriya manav sangrahalaya was Manua Bhan Tekri. Its a Jain temple located on top of a small hill. The temple was closed when we reached there. One can either take the rope way or the road to reach the top. Have gone in the rope car once before but could not remember when and where. This was a nice experience. The car moves slowly and gives panoramic view of the city. There were 2 cars, one going up and other coming down. The temple atop the hill is one of the important pilgrim center for the Jain's. There is also a small kids play area. The hill looked more like a picnic spot than a religious place. Mostly visited by couples and families. Nice place to spend a evening.

Few pictures from the visit.
