Thanks for sharing this post Gowtham. This is very helpful for us to go on a short drive from our hectic weekdays.

There are few forts like Bhongir, Rachakonda, Devarakonda near Nalgonda which are below 150kms I guess. And also Medak fort. Are these forts worth visiting? I think there are many forts near nalgonda, mahabubnagar, nizamabad.

Jaffargadd fort is in Warangal..
There are two routes to reach the place.
1. Route 1 is Warangal Highway - station ganpur - take right and need to touch Suryapet Vijayawada highway
2. Route 2 is Vijayawada highway and we need to take left towards station ganpur..
Road is under repair for 4 lane extension. However its not too bad road. :)
The fort is very less explored place to anybody.
It's so vast in my opinion.
There is temple in the fort which needs a trek to reach it. You can google about the place..

Superb information @etoor . I keep visiting Warangal quite frequently but haven't of this place anytime. Thanks a lot for throwing some light on such an unexplored place. Can you share the pictures if you have any?

    • KIA Seltos scored 3 Stars in NCAP
      KIA Seltos scored 3 stars in global crash test.




       

       
      ADULT OCCUPANT
      The protection offered to the driver and passenger head was adequate, both passenger and driver head bottomed out the airbags. Both adult passenger’s neck protection was good. Driver chest showed marginal protection, while passenger chest protection was good. Driver and passenger knees showed marginal protection as they could impact with dangerous structures behind the dashboard supported by the Tranfascia tube. Driver tibias showed weak and adequate protection while passenger’s tibias showed good and adequate protection. The bodyshell was rated as unstable and it was not capable of withstanding further loadings. Footwell area was rated as unstable. The car offers standard SBR for driver and passenger. All of the above explained the three stars for adult occupant protection.
       
       
      CHILD OCCUPANT
      The child seat for the 3 year old was installed FWF with the adult belt and was not able to prevent excessive forward movement during the impact while it offered poor protection to the head as it contacted with the interior of the car and good protection to the chest. The 18 month old CRs was installed with adult belt rearward facing. The head showed good protection and the chest was protected. The CRSs did not show incompatibility. The manufacturer refused to recommend the CRSs. The vehicle does not offer 3 point belts in all seating positions and it does not offer ISOFIX anchorages. All of the above explained the two stars for child occupant protection.
