Pilgrimage Express!!!


Sorry for not posting travelling ideas regularly, I beg your pardon, but this post will make you happy and provide a huge smile on your face if you are planning to visit Gujarat-India's pilgrimage places!

Dwarka and Somnath are places for pilgrimage in Gujarat:

Dwarkadhish Temple:

Dwarka GJ
The Dwarakadheesh temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Krishna, who is worshiped here by the name Dwarkadhish, or 'King of Dwarka'.

Somnath Temple:
Somnath GJ
The Somnath Temple located in the Prabhas Patan Kshetra near Veraval in Saurashtra, on the western coast of Gujarat, India, is one of the twelve Jyotirlinga shrines of the God Shiva. Somnath means "The Protector of Moon God"

People around India in fact the world travel here to worship Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva respectively but pilgrims had to face difficulties to travel both the ends as there was not any direct train from both sides, so pilgrims had to hire private cabs or had an option to travel by bus, but it was costly, time consuming and above all it was not comfortable since it is long distance travelling.

Now, this difficulty has ran out! Western Railways (India) introduces a daily up-down train between Dwarka (GJ) to Somnath (GJ)

Details:  UP

Train no: 19252

The train halts at Veraval, Keshod, Junagadh Jn, Jetalsar, Gondal, Rajkot, Hapa, Jamnagar, Khambhaliya and Bhatiya stations in both the directions.It consists of AC 3 tier; II class sleeper and II class general coaches. The booking of Train Nos. 19252/ 19251 opened from Tuesday, 9th April, 2013. Public of Maliya Hatina  get frustrated and annoyed as WR didn't allot stoppage at Maliya Hatina Junction.

Travel Idea!! Train: Dwarka Express (Somnath to Dwarka) 19251 will play role of linking train for Secunderabad Express and Coimbatore Express trains from Rajkot!
