[Day 22] More fun in Bijapur

The main attraction for today was a visit to the Ibrahim Rouza, a lesser visited monument in Bijapur.

Since the Ibrahim Rouza wasn’t that far from the hotel, we set out on foot. Along the way Ana & Rob got some great breakfast in a tiny ramshackle hut full of locals. I had already stuffed myself full of the most amazing cookie, filled with coconut and a variety of fruits.

Best cookie ever! Unfortunately, I only bought 1 kg :(.

We were one of the very few people visiting the monument that day, which gave us a chance to walk around without constantly being hassled. In summary, the Ibrahim Rouza is definitely worth a visit if you ever find yourself in Bijapur!

Since we didn’t really have anything else to do for the rest of the day, we strolled back into town and had a nice lunch. In the evening, we boarded a train for our next destination: Matheran.
