We spent two nights at Dhar located a few hours from Indore. Jhira Bagh Palace is an ex palace built in art deco style (now renovated) - and converted into a hotel. The rooms are spacious with excellent linen and ensuite facilities. Located within farms, the property is run well by charming staff, the food is excellent. They have a museum and a very well stocked library - worth spending time in. From Dhar Mandu is only 30 minutes drive and Bagh caves is a two hour drive. One can simply relax in the spacious rooms - we just did that. However, there are several smaller lesser known temples nearby if one wishes to venture out.
