This relatively unknown attraction, approximately 7 km's from Jalgaon Bus Stand, is a great peaceful place to visit as well as stay. The monument is in a large well maintained campus full of fruit-laden trees. Being situated atop a hillock it provides a great view of the city. Although a little far of from the main town, it is well within reach and has all the amenities inside the campus. It is a must visit if you have some 2-3 hrs to spare

Khandesh Central

Reviewed By Lisa H

Not used to having to go through security checks, being body scanned and having my bag/purse searched through when entering malls. First time that happened was here.
We went up to the 2nd floor, where there were no shops, something we didn't know until we were there. While walking around to the other escalators, we were hissed and shouted at in a language we could not understand (local or Hindi) by two ladies on that floor. When we did not go up, and continued to the escalator going down, one of the ladies suddenly spoke English and told us we were not allowed here, and was in a big hurry to get us away from this deserted floor. There were no signs, or anything blocking us, saying it was not okay, beside these ladies. But "walking not allowed" we were told rather rudely.
The only kind-of enjoyable thing was walking through Big Bazar, although upon entering my bag was closed with a plastic strip so I could not open it (and I guess steal) while walking around. The strip made it uncomfortable to wear as the shoulder strap was much tighter. The security guard also followed us (not discreetly at all) and stared for a long time before we could browse by ourselves.
Will not come back.
