Hyderabad to Bidar road trip (year end drive)

Recommended Posts

After lot many considerations, finally we decided to have a one day road trip to Bidar which was ~145 KM from Hyderabad towards Hyderabad - Mumbai highway.

Places considered for weekend stay by road trip,

- Vishakapatnam

- Badrachalam

- Maredumilli

 

But since we where planning at the last moment, finding the accomodation with nominal cost was not happening.

We started by 05:30 A.M.

 

Route: Manikonda --> Khairatabad --> Kukatpally --> Patancheru --> Muthangi --> Sadashivpet --> Digwal (After this I was diverted to a patchy strip by google map) --> Bidar (Ring road).

 

Since it was early morning, there was less traffic and so gone with the above route.

 

But while returning, the route was: Bidar --> Digwal --> Sadashivpet --> Muthangi --> ORR --> Manikonda

 

Reached home by 03:30 P.M.

 

Some pictures below during the drive (this time took some pics of the drive and places we visited).

The road is Awesome.(Apart from short section after getting of NH65). Drive is great !!! 

 

Agree on it, newly laid roads are fantastic.

Early morning drive is too good. 

Last month we visited Gottamgutta, we took the similar route.

Sorry guys, was having some problem with uploading the pictures.

Now it got resolved.

 

2 way lane after NH65 to reach Bidar.

 It was pleasant to drive during winter.

View from Ring road which I took before entering the Bidar town.

This is a 4 way lane and from here you can reach to every place in Bidar.

And the open infinite space next to Fort/ around Rind road is just too awesome...Wonder how it would feel to be there in light shower/drizzle.


It is fantastic during monsoon.
Few pictures captured during the meetup.(last year)

We did not come across any outer ring road, Is it newly laid around Bidar?

Few more pictures,Bahmani Tombs.

The paintings outside of the Kings Tomb.

We went inside the Kings Tomb and man, it was totally a different world inside the Tomb.

It was damn chill and was echoing as if you were shouting from a hill top (we didn't shout like that though.. just the whispering voice was echoing inside).

What a construction with the materials used in earlier times.
Even though other tombs which belong to the Son's of the king have for destroyed due to the lighting.

Archaeological dept have sanctioned some crores to rebuilt, it won't have the quality which it had earlier.

To our surprise, the guide who was explaining us was Great great great grandson of the King Bahmani.

Great pictures and excellent information.

How is the road condition from Bidar fort to Bahmani tombs?
We missed this place during our last drive.

The Ring roads are the ones which connect each of the places in Bidar with one other.

 

From Bidar fort to the Ring road is single lane and smooth. From Ring road to Bahmani Tombs, again single lane with some patches.

Nice pictures @b@r@n. How far is this from the Bidar fort?

@sagar I am not sure about how far the Fort is from this Bahmani Tomb...

but you can see the Fort and the Tomb when you travel in the Ring road. So if I assume that the Tomb is ~2 KM's from the Ring road, its the same for the Fort from the Ring road... so it would be hardly 4 - 5 KM's between the Fort & Tomb...

 

just my assumptions..;)

I did this trip some 6 months back. Its a nice long drive for 1 day trip. Visited Bidar fort and Gurudwara. Didn't visit Tombs.

I found a 4 lane road before enter Bidar towards right. On this 4 lane road found one famous temple "Shri Jharni Narsimha Mandir". But to go inside this sanctum, one need to walk in the water. So, I didn't go and returned. I enquired where this 4 lane road goes, but no one gave any satisfactory answer.

Even we missed Tombs and Temple. 
May be a reason to drive down again, combined with new roads, it is a perfect weekend getaway(winter) from Hyderabad.

 

In 2015, they allowed us to drive inside the fort, it is on a weekday.

On weekends they wont allow for sure.

Yes, we too visited the Shri Jharni Narsimha Temple in Bidar which is again in the outskirts...

As Kailash mentioned, one need to get into the temple and then into the water which will off chest high to get the dharshan of Lord Narshimha... but since we where not prepared of it, there was an idol kept just before getting into the water and we took the blessings from their and returned back... But again people were saying that the water was very very chill, since it was like inside the cave...

I have heard quite a bit about this temple too, the way to reach the idol for darshan is what excited me when I heard about this. Just another reason to make a visit to this place. :)
