We have planned to visit Nasik on 18th June. I understood that room accomodation is available at Muktidham Temple campus. If I am correct, kindly tell me whether we can get the room on 19th ?. Next day we have planned to visit Shirdi by bus. What is the timing for bus and what is the nearest bus stop where from we can get the bus.
