OUR SPECIAL PROPOSAL : DEOGARH, CHANDERI AND ITS SOURROUNDINGS

 

 

Chanderi, located in the Ashoknagar District of Madhya Pradesh, where is ending the North East area of the Malva plateau, is a very charming town with medieval lock,its white houses rise among old ochre palaces and walls, that often constitute the original part of many subsequent buildings. Once flourishing as trade centre between North and South India, now renowned all over the world for the weaving of its sarees, Chanderi  is  particularly attractive for its splendid monuments, the Qila of the hill Fort, the Jama Masjid, the Badal Mahal (Palace) Gate, the graves of Hazrat Nizamuddin family, the Kosak Mahal,   the Shezadi Ka Rauza  and the others  tombs situated around the lonely Permashwar Pond ,  its numerous Baoli and Gates . Most of these monuments date  back  to the time of the Islamic rule of the city, and are works of the Kilji sultans of Mandu in particular,  ( 15th century)- from wich derive the architectural ornamental similarities between the main contemporary artistic edifices of Chanderi and of Mandu  -In the sorrundings can be visited the first settlement of the city, on a remote hill, the fascinating Budhi Chanderi, the old Chanderi, and in the National Museum and in the  Khandargiri caves are located the principal testimonies of the Hindu and Jain past of Chanderi, now again a inter-religious centre of the great Indian faiths.  The neighbourhood of Chanderi offers besides, of great importance and beauty, the mesolititic paintings of the caves of Nanon, and the remains of the Gupta Behti Math temple of Behata, preluding, on the opposite bank of the river Betwa, to the visit of the exceptional Gupta temple of the Then Incarnation of  Vishnu in Deogharh.

To/from Chanderi we can arrange:

train ticket to/ from Lalitpur (U.P.37 km far), + a car to/ from Chanderi, starting from Lalitpur

From khajuraho the train service  to Lalitpur or the  car service to/ from Chanderi, inclusive, by request, of the guided tour of the Pratihara temples in the Tikamghar district

 

In Chanderi and its surroundings by our links and relations we can assure:

the reservation in hotel of different good quality and these different  kinds of tours in Candheri and its neighbourhood by authorised excellent guides (  and our support in Italian language, if you need):

 a tour of  half a day , or all day long, of  all the main monuments of the city of Chanderi

 the excursions:

to Budhi Chanderi and Shri Thobonji Jain Temple ( one day more)

to Deoghargh for visiting the Dasavatar Gupta temple, the Jain temples, the carved caves on the Betwa River ( one day more)

Warning, Troubles, Advantages

The road  of the Corridor of the Uttar Pradesh, between Tikamgarh and Chanderi, and in the surroundings of Chanderi are very bad. The Bus can be the best solution from/ to Lalitpur, arriving  in Lalitpur by train.

The autorickshaw are cheaper than the cars,  and paying a little extracharge you can use them the whole day without time problems. But it's really painful to confront by them the roads around Chanderi.

In Chanderi only the restaurants  that we, or the authorised guides,  recommend,  are reliable.

In the surroundings of Chanderi  frequently it's possible only drink tea and eat biscuits.

In the remote and lonely areas is dangerous to stay after the sunset.

But, by the same raisons, what wonderful  experience,  nevertheless, to visit these extraordinary places!

And what beautiful sarees can  be your memento of Chanderi.

 

With our best regards

Kailash Sen
