"with a dak-bungalow"

Dak bungalows were rest houses located on major routes through India, intended to provide overnight accommodation for travellers.  They were commonly used by government officials who needed to travel for business purposes, but if there were rooms available they would also be used by tourists and civilians.  In Rudyard Kipling's "My Own True Ghost Story" he writes about dak-bungalows on the Grand Trunk Road.
