Aundha Nagnath & Parli Vaijnath

In October…was able to book train tickets for Parbhani with to &  fro A/C tickets…but due to metro work & traffic in Mumbai, reached 3 minutes late to catch Devgiri Express even after 3 hrs (!!) of travel from Borivali to CSTM….did try to run to catch the train with 2 children…and luggage…but in vain…well, again tried to to be book train tickets…got confirmed tickets though non-AC…this time reached well in advance to reach CSTM by local train….

Had good breakfast in nearby hotel…Saffron Veg restaurant…then asked the owner is there any park nearby for children….he gave reference of Rajgopalchari Garden….but first went to visit Pardeshwar Temple….only Shivlinga made from mercury…temple premise is clam…they should have written some info/history about this temple….after this went to the garden…though it is open only from 5pm to 8pm….one of the gate was open and saw children already playing in the garden…children had good time to get their loving stuff…though garden is pretty huge, needs immediate renovation !!!…..
