    For one who is anxious to engage constantly in hearing such topics, kṛṣṇa-kathā gradually increases his indifference towards all other things. Such constant remembrance of the lotus feet of Lord Kṛṣṇa by the devotee who has achieved transcendental bliss vanquishes all his miseries without delay.

    _____________________________________________________

    Almost all the trains which go to Indore passes from Ujjain.
    Ujjain being a junction has advantage of better railway connectivity.
    Railway – In my opinion it is best way to travel, Ujjain is well connected from most of the prominent places in India like Delhi, Mumbai, Ahamdabad, Jaipur, Nagpur, Chennai, Benglore, Kolkata, Bilaspur, Bhopal etc. Nagada, Ratlam and Bhopal are near by big junctions from where you can find better options for travel.

    Indore is connected from Mumbai, Delhi, Bhopal and Ahamdabad by national highways; however people do not prefer this mode.
    Form Indore overnight video coach buses for Mumbai, Pune, Jaipur, Ahamdabad, Gwalior and Nagpur, Nasik are available. Indore is well connected from major cities of MP. Tourism AC buses are available for Bhopal takes 4-5 Hrs.
    Rajasthan and Gujarat State transport have buses from major cities of Rajasthan and Gujarat like Broda, Udaipur, Kota, Jaipur etc. Maharashtra State transport only 2-3 buses to some cities of Maharashtra like Aurangabad, Amravati, and Nasik etc.

    Distance between Indore and Ujjain is nearly 60 Km.
    There are 3 ways to travel
    1) Bus – Bus services in MP are in very bad shape. Almost there are no Govt buses, all the privet buses which are affiliated from MPSRTC runs on these roads. All the buses are over loaded all the time; they don’t start until buses are more than full. There are two bus stands in Ujjain one is Nanakheda other is DewasGate. All the buses from Indore or Dewas first come to Nanakheda then go to Dewas Gate. While coming to Ujjain get down at Nanakheda Bus stand as it is very near to temple. But when you want to go to Indore or Dewas don’t catch bus from Nanakheda as you will never get a seat.
    There are 4 main bus stands in Indore main one is Sarvate bus stand (near railway station), Gangwal, Navlakha and Vijay Nagar. From Sarvate you will find frequent buses for Ujjain, from Vijay Nagar less frequent. All the video coach buses for Mumbai, Pune etc halts at Navlakha bus stand.
    Normally bus takes two to three hours time to travel. Out of this bus takes 45 min to 70 min time, to travel from Sarvate bus stand to check post (outer periphery of Indore). At bus stand, bus conductor promises you that this bus is going with in two minutes but from bus stand to railway station bus take 25-30 minutes(for 500 meters). Normally you will find 4 to 6 buses standing or moving at low speed from bus stand to railway station, if you can find seat in bus near railway station catch it as this bus will leave before all the buses which are in back side.
    Fair is from Rs 33 to 40. At Sarvate bus stand some Rajasthan and Gujarat State Transport buses are available which moves faster and are less overloaded than privet ones.
    Indore Ujjain Highway is under contraction and it is expected that by next year it will get complete.

    2) Taxi/Cabs – Limited shared taxies available, since there is always fight between privet bus people and shared cabs you need to be wise enough to understand how to catch shared ones. If you are standing with little luggage near Nanakheda bus stand some people can give a lift to you till Indore. In Indore you can get shared one from starch of Sarvate bus Stand till Shastri Bridge (on MG Road). You can hire one for yourself easily, but normally you don’t get taxi for one-way, cabs will ask you for fair of return journey. Metro taxi are available on phone like Meru taxi of Mumbai, they charge Rs 15 per km and Rs 60 per Hour as waiting charges. Best way is get in touch with temple, as temple has some vehicles kept for gust traveling which can also be used for local sight seeing. You can also get adjusted with devotees who move from Indore to Ujjain or temple vehicles which sometime go to Indore, for this again you need to contact temple.

    3) Trains – There are two ways to travel for Ujjain one is Broad Gauge and other is meter (narrow) gauge. There is no reservation facility available in meter gauge train. There are approx 12 to 15 trains in a day between Indore and Ujjain on broad gauge line Express train take approx 1:30 Hr. There are four trains on meter gauge takes approx 2:15 Hr.

    In Indore there is temple in Nipania, but it is far from Indore Airport Contact no is 0731 – 3250748. There is no guest house as such in temple, but temple is near by Vijay Nagar area where there are ample of mid to high range hotels to stay. Also there is a fine restaurant named Vrinda’s in Vijay Nagar area where one can have nice prasadam.

    There is no temple in Dewas as of now.
    Dewas is 35 KM from Indore, connected by highway and railway.
    It is 37 KM from Ujjain, well connected by Rail and Road

    Thank you for the wonderful group. I also appreciate the info regarding where ISKCON Ujjain is situated.
    I'm planning a trip to Indore and Ujjain in Dec.
    Can anyone please tell me if there is a guesthouse at ISKCON Indore as well?
    How is the best way to travel from Indore to Ujjain? Is there a temple also at the place Diwas?

    You are most welcome to Ujjain temple.
    Address of Temple is :
    ISKCON Hare Krishna Land, Bharatpuri,Near Dewas Road Ujjain, MP - 456 010
    The temple is located ten to fifteen minutes away from the station.
    You can come by city bus, Local tempo, Auto rickshaw etc
    ISKCON is very famous in Ujjain, you can ask local people for the guidance.
    but beware of business minded people they may cheat you in name of ISKCON as local people think ISKCON people are very rich.
    In the temple premises we have high class Hotel and Govinda's Restaurant.
    There are a few Hotels in Nanakheda area (1km from temple)
    You can also stay in temple, it is like dharamshala only but you need to ask HG Ganganarayan Prabhu or HG Anirudha prabhu 9300257733 for availability etc.
    Come to temple there are wonderful deovtees who will help you.
