Gagangiri Maharaj Math Temple Kolhapur : The Gagangiri Maharaj Math Temple Kolhapur is located at Dijapur, a forest very close to Kolhapur. The scenic beauty of the place lures tourists from far and wide to this location. It is the location where Gagangiri Maharaj served penance from 1932 to 1940. We clicked several photographs here and had a lot of fun.
It had been quite some time and I enjoyed relishing the real taste of Kolhapur. The fort is well-connected to the city and this was a great convenient factor for me. I reached the Hotel Shalini Palace Kolhapur easily by a private cab. I spent that short trip while crazily looking out of the window as the city was simply colourful. The city and its folks profoundly stir the spirits of cheers and gratitude towards the designer of such an exquisite homeland. The splendid heritage and improbable archaeology followed with indigenous gardens and lakes, and magnificent temples of the city are bestowed by Goddess Mahalaxmi. All these features were mesmerizing to great extent.
While heading towards my hotel, my eyes were peeping outside, seeking for Kolhapuri slippers, my all-time favourite. I grew up wearing these slippers. Comfortable, ethnic and stylish, the slipper says it all. At last, I got the one of my choice and ended up buying three to four pairs of them.
Hurrying towards the hotel as I was dying of hunger, I checked in the allotted room and ordered some mouth-watering snacks from the hotel’s menu card. Till then I freshened up in my sophisticated and well-furnished room with luxury bathroom and the accessories. Though ranked in budget background, the hotel is rather a choice of comfort. In the meantime my food arrived with aroma of flavours sprinkled in it and it was followed with coffee. I relished the delicacies of Kolhapur. They were simply authentic and had the awe factor. Though I generally avoid over eating despite being a foodie, this time it was a big failure.
With a tight stomach and a great mood, I decided to encircle the hotel corridors and interiors. I must say it is literally an impressive and massive building with wood work on its entrance gate. Embellished with Italian marble and black stone, the carvings emerge out with special effects. The warm cosy atmosphere was inspiring me to have a long walk in the premises of the Hotel Shalini Palace Kolhapur but I failed to do so as I was badly tired. Without thinking any more I got back to my lavish room to have plenty of spare time chatting with friends online and stay relaxed for the rest of the evening. The next morning I had an appointment with Shree Chhatrapati Shahu Museum Kolhapur.
