Visiting Amarkantak was indeed a profound experience. Stay in Holiday Homes added to the beauty.
Amarkantak is a place with pristine glory. The serenity and spirituality of the place can be felt as soon as one reaches the place. The beauty is that unlike many other religious places in India, the serenity of Amarkantak remains undiminished.
Holiday Homes is ideally located at about 1.5 km from the Narmada Udgam. The front desk is courteous and efficient. We were in our rooms within 5 minutes of our showing up at the desk. Room at the upper floor was spacious with a drawing room and a balcony offering great view of the lake and the mountain range beyond. Rooms and bathroom were clean. Linens and towels were clean and fresh. Vegetarian food was tasty though simple. Restaurant staff were courteous and efficient..
Amarkantak has many great places to see. While lot has been written about the other places, I found Mai Ki Bagiya particularly fascinating especially when dusk was approaching. Sitting there, I was once more reminded of the great spiritual history that our country possesses.
View of Narmada Mai from any place in Amarkantak was exhilarating. On one occasion, we saw a group of pilgrims commencing their parikrama. It left a sense of longing in me. I visited a couple of Ashrams there. The experience, as I said, right in the beginning, was profound.
We stayed at Amarkantak for three nights. The combined experience of place and hotel will have an indelible imprint on my mind.
