Country Inn Sahibabad…in Ghaziabad? I should have known that I would find a Country Inn there. Ghaziabad is a very modern city and one of India’s more interesting. Most people love all the modern elements of life there from the dining to the shopping to the movie theaters. When I checked on things to do in Ghaziabad I found 36 movie theaters. This is not the center for archaeological digging endeavors that I was looking for, no archeological digs in the city. On the other hand, Ghaziabad is a good hub location for scores of sights and it is one of the most historically important locations in the country. Add in that Country Inn Sahibabad has all the comforts of home. That will help convince my wife, who is not as great a fan of dig-dirt as she is her husband, to join me for the ‘not the dirt’ portion of the trip, while getting a little pampering me time. Her alternatives being stay home alone or to be dragged into a pit of dirt and dust that is being hyped by said husband as a ‘Vacation’. Win-Win.
Base camp for my wife.
She gets modern accommodations 20km from the Indira Gandhi Airport we will be coming through. The on-site restaurants, complimentary hot breakfast buffet, health club and spa, beauty salon and shopping arcade, outdoor pool with bar are a lot more enticing for many spouses than a dirt and mud investigation of the archaic past. Plus, I have an ace up my sleeve. My wife’s a yoga nut and I have YogaFinder where I have found no less than 59 yoga schools in the area and two are in Ghaziabad. Both yoga schools less than a half hour away.
Thank You Country Inn Sahibabad
I get a central location for tons of fascinating history and study all within driving distance are some of India’s most interesting archeological sites and digs today. The Country Inn Sahibabad in Ghaziabad is an incredible place to set up base camp for your forays out to your choice of great sites. Such as:
Fatehpur Sikri Fort / Fortress 176.3 km
Good clean archaeology at all of them, but for a real dig Sisupalgarh in Orissa on the outskirts of Bhubaneswar is time to pack your backpack.
The fort is about 5 km from the railway station and 10 km from the
airport. There archeological teams from Deccan College in Pune,
University of California and Archeological
Survey of India (ASI) are unearthing a 2500 year old
city with an estimated population of 25,000. That would make
it larger and older than ancient Athens, Greece. Can
you just hear the sound of the spades?
