Shri Daba Hanuman Ji Temple, Sirohi


This is Daba Hanuman Ji Mandir outside Sirohi City.
Very lonely and very peaceful temple.

My father took me to this place when I was in 6th class. I have very beautiful memories for this temple.

My father told me that this is called as DABA HANUMAN JI because the priest was worshiping the god from left hand. In Sirohi marwadi language left is called as DABA.

So the name has “Daba Hanuman Ji ka Mandir”.

Neral – Matheran Mountain Railway


I like rail-fanning though I am not giving too much time on my this hidden activity. But one day I will be active rail-fanning guy.
Want to know all about train and trains. Even though today also its like daily adventure traveling via train in mumbai.

So we have decided to visit Matheran via Neral-Matheran Mountain Railways.
The train timings are very convenient. There are very few routes in India where toy trains are running. You can see http://www.trainenquiry.com/StaticContent/Special_Hills.aspx like for more detail.

In season time and on weekends the trains are running full, so you make sure you book train tickets well in time. You can book tickets via IRCTC website. So we did the same we have already booked the tickets. 🙂

Nerail is situated in Mumbai – Pune rail road. From Neral we can catch Matheran Train which takes 90 minutes average.

A View of narrow gauge, it looks very less space between two tracks and put us into confusion that how a train run on such a narrow space.

Neral – Matheran Train traveling is all about fun, curves, hight, slow speed, toy train, stops, views and panoramas.

I clicked some of the train engines.
