I too have received these socks last year. What the hell are we supposed to do with it?

Earning my socks : Patan Kund on Google Maps

My review :
Stumbled upon this kund / talav on 19th Feb 2020 when I was walking to Rani Ki Vav. It's right opposite the Kalika Maa mandir. One of the locals told me that in more than two years I was the first person to enter this place. There are some carvings, one niche has a Yoni but the Shiv-ling is gone ! Look at the attached pics it's really so sad to find something like this neglected. In the monsoons it might be full of water - if any of you pass by please post a pic. If you can inform the Patan Municipal Corp. about this kund, please do. Even the locals did not know its name - so I named it Patan Kund, and added it to Google Maps.
Rating it five stars.

So Mr Gajanan Rao..local guide...
Seems you recently travelled to Matheran... is the train running or as always suspended for the usual issues?
in dec train was running between matheran & amam lodge.
due to heavy rains last year, tracks were damaged.

One more site paying the price for the fame of Rani Ki Vav : Old Masjid and Maqbara, Google Maps

I had to add it to Google Maps as "Old Masjid and Maqbara".

My review:
Saw this maqbara & masjid when walking to Sahasralinga Tank. Right next to Rani Ki Vav and missed by everyone. Old abandoned masjid and a maqbara with two graves. I asked the people living nearby the name of this place but I just could not understand what they said. If any of you know the correct name, please post here. I feel for places like this; old, not 'restored', treated like a step-child ;-). See the attached pics and decide if this place deserves better or not. Visitors to the pampered child, Rani Ki Vav, could drop in here too.
