On arrival, we will take you to your hotel where you can take rest and then get ready to explore the city of Indore.
Rao Nandlal Chaudhary built the city of Indore, which was a major commerce centre between the Deccan and Delhi in the 16th century. Later, Rani Ahilya Bai Holkar, who had a passion for planning and education, developed the biggest city (Indore) in Madhya Pradesh. For the fifth year consecutively, Indore has been named "the cleanest city in India," and it has secured a spot in the first 20 cities to be transformed into smart cities.
In the afternoon we will visit a few major attractions such as as the Rajwada, a beautiful blend of Maratha, Mughal and French styles of architecture along with a statue of Queen Ahilya Bai and Bada Ganpati temple with the largest Ganpat idol of Asia. If time allows we will also try and visit the Kanch Mandir, a magnificent structure constructed entirely of glass and mirrors and the opulent Lal Bagh Palace.
Apart from being considered as Madhya Pradesh's commercial capital, it is also known for mouth-watering culinary experience. From Poha Jalebi, Mawa Bati, Dal-Bafla, Malpua to Bhutte ki kees, the foodie in you would want to eat it them all. A visit to Indore is never complete without having scrumptious food at city's Chappan Dukan.
After spending a day in perfect balance of heritage & modern culture, we will return back to the hotel. Stay and dinner at the hotel in Indore.

Today, we will start our journey to Mandu early in the morning after breakfast. Located at an elevation of 2,000 feet in the Vindhya hills Mandu is a city adorned with breathtaking architectural jewels and a walk through the gallery of the monuments can leave you spell-bound.
Be it the enormous Jami Masjid and Hoshang Shah's Tomb, which is thought to have served as inspiration for the Taj Mahal's master architects or the Jahaz Mahal made of stone and mortar, that appears to be a ship poised to set sail as it floats over its reflection in the twin lakes present here. The gateways (Darwaza) recount the history of imperial victories, while the stately palaces still breathe a romantic air. Mandu offers a wide variety of sights to explore, including forts, palaces, gateways, and temples.
After delving into the fascinating story of the Roopmati Pavilion that was built as a result of the epic romance between Baz Bahadur and Roopmati and the legends around the Hindola Mahal, Champa Baoli, Ashrafi Mahal's abandoned ruins we will call it a day!

We will explore the beautiful temples located in the massive Maheshwar fort that stands on a hill with the holy Narmada on one side and the modern town of Maheshwar on the other side. The sight looks nothing short of a painting. The Ahilyabai fort and palace house a beautiful life-size statue of Rani Ahilyabai on a throne and a Shiva temple. We will also visit the Rajwada before going on a shopping spree to a handloom that makes authentic Maheshwari Sarees.

Get ready to witness the town that is shaped like Om - the holiest symbol of Hinduism. Adorned with lofty hills, between which the river Narmada forms a serene pool and is home to one of the 12 Jyotirlinga shrines, Shri Omkareshwar Jyotirlinga. Both Omkareshwar and Mamleshwar are the form of the same Jyotirlinga. Mamleshwar Jyothirlinga is on the south bank of the Narmada and Omkareshwar sits on the Omkar mountain towards the north bank of Narmada river. It is believed that a Pilgrimage to the Omkareshwar isn't complete without paying obeisance to the Mamleshwar temple as it is believed to houses half of the Omkareshwar Jyothirlinga.
Later, in the afternoon we will start our onwards journey to Ujjain. Ujjain is one of those divine lands in Madhya Pradesh where you do not just feel the peace but also sink in the divinity that calms your soul from within. Upon reaching Ujjain, visit the Harsiddhi mata temple that is one of 51 Shaktipeeths and is also considered to be the Shakti of Mahakaal. In the evening, checkin to your hotel and have an early dinner before a good night sleep.

Phurr travellers have added another set of satisfied clients who had super fun,met some great people who were like minded and on top of that found an amazing person Mr Gaurav who is an informed traveler. The stories which I have heard from my parents in law about the recent trip literally made me feel that Gaurav goes an extra mile to ensure that he was traveling with his own family and took utmost care of people around him. It was a well organized tour and gave us the confidence that our parents will enjoy and at the same time taken care of when it is Gaurav and his team. Kudos! It was all the more surprising to see my father in law talking endless good things and praising Gaurav’s style of keeping the group engaged and made sure they are safe & comfortable. The arrangements were neatly done, well planned & catered to travel styles for elders. I definitely recommend all the kids to be rest assured when there parents are on a trip with Phurr. Look forward for more such trips with you guys!- Kriti Prateek (Delhi)
I would definitely recommend Phurr to people around me. All the credit goes to Mr. Gaurav, the organiser. I’m saying this so confidently because my in laws (Goldy Cheema and Harinder Pal Singh Cheema) recently went on the tour to Jaipur-Ranthambore-Agra. They really had a comfortable stay and enjoyed thoroughly. The trip was planned so well especially keeping in mind the age group. Thank you Gaurav for putting so much efforts to make it perfect for your travellers. Keep up the good work and wish you all the best for future.- Arpan Salwan (Delhi)
Phurr travels are very good tour organiser, we appreciate their sincerity and public dealing very much from our hearts. The organiser used to take too much pain for their esteemed customers. In fact Mr Gaurav Kumar is a nice gentleman who is the main architect behind all the tours. They can be contacted for any forthcoming tours. All the best.- Kamal Kumar Srivastava (Lucknow)
Thank You Gaurav for making Jaipur-Ranthambore-Agra trip a memorable one for my Parents (Goldy Cheema and Harinder Pal Singh Cheema). They can't stopping praising Phurr and the organiser.

Back from a lovely trip with unknown people. At first I had some apprehensions bcoz I had found this group on Facebook and I had shortlisted it as it was budget friendly. My daughter encouraged me so I took the leap of faith and now I thank god for that!! Gaurav became a friend a travel buddy in couple of hrs...very caring but also at times giving that extra push so that no one miss anything that will be regretted afterwards. He even took care to keep us entertained by playing tambola and antakshari after the day tour when everyone seemed to be engaged in their mobile. Thank you Gaurav for accompanying us on those random shopping plans. I totally enjoyed the trip and looking forward for more info future.- Sunita Tharad Nangalia (Kolkata)
Review time! So it started with my mother coming across this page “Phurr” which is a travel group for 45 + people. She wanted to try this as she always wishes to travel and explore places but somehow the timing never matched with our schedule. However what made her more interested was that the trips were very budget friendly (to take that risk of even if it does not go well its fine!). I must say I was very much apprehensive about whether she will enjoy and most importantly if she would be comfortable, would there be someone to help in those small needs when you travel at that age, will there be someone to assist her with the luggage etc during the journey, how will she commute from the station to hotel, what if the hotels and activities mentioned in the itinerary does not match to the actual, etc and etc. Even so I took details of all the hotel reservations and contact numbers before her trip started but none of them was of any use..all thanks to Gaurav! As soon as my mother boarded the train he was in touch with her. Even so he figured out that the train was running late much before even I did. He was there on the station waiting for her and I knew that I can worry less with such a great start. Also my mother was amazed with all the arrangements, the hotels was exactly as mentioned in the itinerary. Also there were so many activities, games involved in between the sight seeings that she had a lot of fun along with the other group members. So much so, that she had no time to even call me or talk to me much during the trip. She mentioned that Gaurav was an awesome travel buddy and ensured each member is having fun always. After this wonderful experience I am insisting my mother to travel more with Phurr. I strongly recommend this travel group. Happy travelling!!- Yashi Nangalia (Mumbai)
My daughter sponsored a 4 days tour package for me through Phurr - A Travel and Adventure Group for 45+/ Senior citizens to Jaipur-Ranthambore-Agra. Phurr Travel organiser Mr. Gaurav Kumar’s interaction with travellers is really good. He listens to every ones needs and problems very patiently and solves them quickly, encouraging the travellers to travel with ease. He provides service of guides at each and every place. Those who find it difficult to walk or climb on the 1st day were found doing these easily from the next day onwards. Thus their confidence level and energy level increases day by day. I have enjoyed sightseeing, seeing tigers from their living place, seeing Palaces and forts and swimming at the heritage resort. The stay and food provided was also very good. I enjoyed the trip very much. I love to travel with Phurr Travel group again as it gives plenty of Phurr. The care of the organiser Mr. Gaurav Kumar and the wonderful everlasting memories of the travel will remain forever in my memory. In my opinion giving a chance to travel with Phurr – A Travel Group to your parents and elders will surely change their minds as the tour stimulates their stamina level and confidence. So I recommend everyone to give a chance and encourage 45+/ Senior citizens to experience a travel through Phurr A Travel Group. ….Hats off to Mr. Gaurav Kumar, the organiser of Phurr a Travel and Adventure Group.- Remadevi IC (Kerala)
I am a super senior of 78 and Uttarakhand was my second tour with Phurr and Gaurav. First was Ladakh. You can't find a more caring tour operator that's for sure! God bless Phurr Travel and Gaurav!- OP Anand (Delhi)
