We travelled from Indore to Shirdi by AC sleeper bus. The bus was really well-maintained and provided us full comfort with co-operative behaviour of the bus staff. Bus not provided pillow or blankets during the journey if provided this would be good. Night journey so there was no need of entertainment so there was nothing for the entertainment. The rest stop time was sufficient for refreshment but the hotel/ dhaba was terrible and zero hygienic. This was a really a matter of concern during the journey. In future if we get opportunity to visit Shirdi we would definitely prefer to travel in this.
Driving is not an issue. Sufficient petrol pumps along the way. More than enough eating places, almost all of them 'Pure Vegetarian'. 415 kilometres can be easily covered in 6 hours. If you start by 7 AM, you can reach Shirdi by 1 PM. Baba's temple is least crowded between 3-5 PM and this time frame can easily be met if you travel by car.
Roads from Indore to Shirdi is in very good condition. Most of it is four lane highway and even the state highway was alright. On the way there are enough roadside restaurants with limited restroom facilities. It took us seven hrs to reach Shirdi. There are enough petrol pumps and other amenities on the way as this road goes through reasonably big towns.
We visited Shirdi by car. Highway condition was so good so long drive was not a problem at all. On the way you have number of good looking restaurant and dhabas. Out of them we had taken our dinner at one dhaba named Punjabi dhaba. Food was quite tasty and with local touch. Overall journey was good.
We went to Shirdi by bus and finally booked the seats in Pawan Travels. We hired sleeper seats, as it was a comfortable. In the bus, we also got TV facility, so it was an entertaining travel all the time.
