Part-I “A Dream come true”

Day 0 started. with a random plan of attending a cousin friend’s wedding and then joining the team for the frozen river trek.
After some wonderful moments spent at the big fat wedding, our journey began in the cutest car.. Nano.!
We covered 2000kms in 9days.. Staying in 4star hotels… in Palaces.. to 3star hotels and in a “5billion star hotel” along the smooth and never ending highways, getting trolled on some of the hilarious moments… listening to some evergreen classic Hindi songs…in freezing temperatures .. making new friends… & eating super delicious and utterly butterly food, was just all we needed to make a perfect road trip.!

Visiting the two most beautiful cities of Rajasthan, and some of the most amazing Forts ever built… it was indeed a dream come true..

BUT.!! this wasn’t a “wanderers” style of trip. So.. to add some thrill we visited the over hyped and so called haunted Fort.. Haunted Fort Of Bhangarh..

At bhangarh palace
After a disappointing horror visit, my beloved friend Niraj came up with an idea of visiting a temple where ghosts visit and worship their lord..
Yes.! we did the most thrilling and disturbing visit (as expected it to be…) to Mehndipur Balaji.. and our ghost buster Advaiya managed to click some videos and clicks of the horror temple…crazy guy..

Mehndipur Balaji
He never failed to show his presence around me in different forms.. may it be at Chhitorgarh, Rajasthan.. or Kumbalgarh Fort.. or in Udaipur Palace..

Spending 9days in Rajasthan making some unforgettable memories… it was so difficult to say goodbye to the Pink city and move to our most awaited destination.. “The Chadar trek”
It’s took 4years to let this dream come true.. but it was worth waiting that long..

It is been often said those who willing to visit the temple get some sort of hurdles on the way…

Some peoples even say that this holy place is bestowed with such power that it could turn atheistic to a theist…some what happen to us visiting the place

The Mehandipur Balaji Temple is flocked by people in large numbers every day.

Mehndipur balaji temple is broadly divided into four chambers, as we enter the temple we were welcome by the sounds of bell and screaming of womens and children’s .The first chambers have idols of Lord Hanuman…and the second chamber have idols of lord Bhairav. Once entering the temple it seems the outside world has been closed for you…

At the second chamber we have given the black colored ball which is said to ‘Prasad’ which is not to be eaten but to be thrown in the ceremonial fire of lord Bhairon ,it is said that by doing so, you keep all evil forces at bay. It is said that the Lord Hanuman is the most powerful of Hindu deities which keeps all the black magic away from you…

While entering the third chamber of the temple we were terrified by the men and women were banging their heads on pillars and the wall as they were feeling no pain…

Finally entering  the third chamber loud noise of womens children’s were at the peak “hall of hell” peoples were chained with the locks and after a frequent time pandit beating them. It was even scarier…

Leaving the temple,

A bagger lady came to us saying”paise dedo bahiya bhik nahi mang rahi, dedo nahi toh  mere beti aatma peche ayengi” we can’t dare to say no to her…

Strange isn’t it???
