Okay so you’re in Indore now. You’re thinking about doing something fun, but you want to fill your stomach first. Sure there are many high-end places and 5-star hotels you can go to for a great breakfast spread, but if you’re in Indore and you don’t eat the famous Poha-Jalebi for breakfast, why are you even in Indore?
Poha-Jalebi is Indore’s gift to humanity, it is a dish that is the perfect combination of savory-sweet and tangy.

After you’re done with the breakfast, wander around a little bit, admire the cleanliness and the classic charm of the city.
Dedicate the day to stare admiringly at the lush greenery and head to Patal-Pani Waterfall.
Hardly an hour from Indore, Patal-Pani Waterfall is among the most beautiful waterfalls in India. It’s name is derived from the fact that no-one has been able to measure the depth of the lake that forms there and it is believed that the waterfall directly goes to pataal (hell/the underworld). keeping the stories aside, patal-pani is a beautiful place to go to, if you’re looking for adventure or just want to spend some time away from the constant buzz of cities and vehicles.
