    I was with the opinion that we should stay at Pali and ride in next morning to Madh since it was 6:40 PM by that time but my fiends insist we should stay at Madh. So we proceed to Madh some local told us that it is around 50km from Pali.

    We started our journey toward Madh We had reached Madh around at 7:30 till that time it was quite dark. Then we took darshan and book Bhakta Nivas. There was no crowd at all in mandir. We had our food then went to bed soon.

    Day 2

    We got up around at 6:00 am in Morning as we could not sleep due to new place. We were discussing about hot water for bath we was under impression that hot water may not be available as in night we could not find any hot water to tap. My friend was used to bath with hot water so he went to take shower. After his bath he told me that tap is having hot water and timing for hot water was 5 am to 8 am so I decided to bath now.

    Room was ok, They just charge us Rs. 250 (which include Rs. 100 as refundable deposit), I left around at 7:00 am I took a darshan once again. we have not taken our deposit back as booking counter was not open at that time. We started riding toward theur. We reached theur appx after 2 hours.

    Road was narrow so we were cruising between 60-70 kmph, We reached siddhatek around at 10:48 PM There was some rush in temple may be because of Sunday.
