We stayed at the MPR (Meher Pilgrim Retreat) while we found an apartment/home to rent. Accommodations here are nice and clean and only 70 rupees a day, plus 290 rupees for three vegetarian meals a day. That’s about 7 dollars a day, total. The only bad things here are very hard mattresses, getting noisy neighbors, and only bucket baths, which having been here many times, we are used to.
I also had lots of fun feeding and taking photos of wild squirrels.
