Our next destination after Chanderi was Gwalior. As we had enough time, we wished to check out a few places on the way which included Datia and Shivpuri. We zeroed in on Shivpuri as we would also have a chance to visit the Madhav National Park on the way. The initial drive was on a single road until we reached Sirsod, wherefrom it was on the 4 laned NH 27. We took a diversion following a sign board directing us towards Madhav National Park and drove for about 5 km only to realize that we were lost and had taken the wrong diversion. We returned to the highway and started driving towards Shivpuri and suddenly found another board (the right one this time) towards Madhav National Park! We inquired at the entrance of the national park only to realise that the safari and the entrance fee were insanely priced and decided to skip visiting the park. We drove ahead to check out the Royal Chhatris.
