Madhya Pradesh Trip-3: Visit to Chitrakoot

Watch the full video here Overview: I first heard about Chitrakoot while watching the TV series Ramayan in the 1980s. Then later read several books and heard from different people how important Chitrakoot is in Indian history. I reached Chitrakoot from Gwalior at around 4am in the morning, and I had booked the Retiring room at Chitrakoot Railway station for my accomodation. But unfortunately after reaching ChitrakootDham railway station, I found the Retiring room in a shabby conditon and in complete darkness. People were sleeping on the platform and there was nobody to guide me on the retiring room. So finally I decided to move out of the station and look for accomodation. I managed to get a single room just opposite the Railway station for Rs 800. There are several options for stay near the railway station, and since I had my next train past midnight, I preferred some place quite close so that I can just walk to the train station. I got freshened up and at around 7:30am, I ventured ou

Exploring Bengaluru Airport's New Terminal 2

Overview: Recently, I had the opportunity to experience Bangalore Airport's new Terminal 2, located around 1.5 km away from Terminal 1. I was impressed by the airport's garden city theme, with beautiful trees and vertical gardens adorning the space. The walls were decorated with sketches of Bygone Bangalore by artist Paul Fernandez, adding to the aesthetic appeal of the airport.

I was particularly impressed by the lounge, although I didn't get a chance to experience it during my visit. With 32+ gates, the terminal is equipped to accommodate international airlines in the future. Currently, only Air Asia and Star Air domestic flights are in operation. 

Despite this, I found flying out of Terminal 2 to be a great experience. The airport's design and layout are both impressive, with plenty of natural light and open spaces making it feel less crowded than other airports. The garden city theme is particularly well-executed, creating a calming and welcoming atmosphere.

As I waited for my flight, I couldn't help but notice the attention to detail throughout the terminal. From the unique seating arrangements to the artwork on the walls, everything felt carefully considered and thoughtfully designed. The use of greenery and nature-inspired decor made the airport feel like an extension of the city itself.

I was travelling to Kalaburgi on Star Air, a 60-seater airline that offered good leg space. One downside I experienced was the limited space in the overhead compartments. It made it challenging to store my belongings and required me to be extra careful when handling them. However, the comfort of the flight itself more than made up for this minor inconvenience.

Overall, I was impressed by Bangalore Airport's Terminal 2 and look forward to visiting again in the future. The airport's attention to detail, unique design, and garden city theme make it a welcome addition to the city's infrastructure. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a more pleasant airport experience.

How to reach: T1 and T2 are within the same airport campus at a distance of approximately 600 meters, and complimentary airport shuttle bus services are available 24X7 at regular frequency between the two terminals.

At T1, complimentary shuttle services are available from two points.
