Things to Do Within Jehan Numa Retreat

 

Jehan Numa offers a range of exciting experiences and activities to go about while you unwind during your weekend getaway from Indore. You can choose to walk amidst the vast swathes of wheat plantations, or within our in-house organic garden. Get an exclusive tour of the property and a guide to explain the names of the herbs and the methods involved in growing them. You can also pick the vegetables and fruits of your choice and have it cooked.

Kids can be a handful during a vacation. We not only like to keep them entertained but also facilitate some learning. During the evenings, post 7 pm, we play a wildlife documentary at our private dining space, which has a projector and a canvas screen installed. Kids can lounge on the bean bags, have some tasty munchables, and watch the marvels of nature.

Yoga sessions are conducted seasonally, during October-March in the mornings. Rise early, attend the yoga session that either happens near the machan or by the swimming pool. Our yoga specialist will guide you to a calming yoga session, while the morning mist still hasn’t faded away. The session is free of cost and goes on for about an hour every morning. Register today to book a slot.

Bhopal is culturally rich and boasts several places of interest. While you are on your getaway, you can opt to go for a heritage tour to explore these marvels on a chargeable basis. A historian can be hired exclusively to conduct this tour, guide you and provide interesting digests about the beautiful places in and around the city and its history.

They generally charge Rs 5000 for one car (Max 3 pax) and the cost can be shared between individuals too.

It is a half-day activity which covers Ahmedabad Palace in the city and the Bhopal lake.

  • The tour of the Tribal Museum takes about 2 hours, showcasing civilization, homes and lifestyle of popular central Indian tribes.

  • The Museum of Man tour is a 3½ hours tour that calls for a lot of walking. The different tribes in various Indian states are depicted.

  • The State Museum is a 1-hour tour which encompasses the tale of various specific tribes, including the archaeology and cultural aspects exclusive to the state of Madhya Pradesh.

Architectural marvels like the Taj-ul-Masajid, the "Crown among Mosques" is also a part of this Heritage Tour. It is one of the biggest mosques in India and was built by Nawab Shah Jahan Begum. The structure looks very similar to Jama Masjid in Delhi. We also feature what is said to be the smallest mosque in Asia, the 'Dhai Seedhi Ki Masjid’ as a part of the tour.
