SUNSET @ WARANGAL FORT

IMG_0120After living in WARANGAL for so many years , if I do not write about it ,that’s an absolute stupidity. Because there is always so much to tell about our place. WARANGAL has so many historical places which are still alive. WARANGAL FORT is one of them . Everyone who comes to Warangal wants to visit that . I myself took almost 50-60 of my friends & relatives . It took around 15-20 visits.

warangal fortWarangal fort is located near the city of Warangal . A thick stone built wall is seen surrounding it which looks pretty strong still . When we enter through the gate , there is a small town . Penetrating the town will take you to a huge stone built hall which is said to the DARBAR of KAKATHIYA DYNASTY .  We can go to the top of that building . ( But the stairs are soooo uncomfortable ).History says it was built in 13th century.

Ruins at Warangal Fort, Andhra Pradesh43543Further expeditions will take you to the ruins of what once had been  a structure of beautiful art of KAKATIYA time . There are some temples , single stone elephants , pillars carved from head to toe. There will be a LIGHT & SOUND SHOW  in the evening for 45 mins.

IMG_0173Opposite to these ruins there is another complex with a kids park & a temple on the hill. It has a separate entrance fare.  The first picture was taken on the hill top . This is supposed to be a surveillance spot for the protection of fort. Rumors about a secret passage from here to RAMAPPA are widespread. It would be soooo exciting to find that .

Reaching WARANGAL is simple. It has bus  connections from many cities . KHAJIPET JN which is a major railway junction is like a twin to WARANAL. Nearest airport is in HYDERABAD. But soon there going to be an airport in WARANGAL itself.

WHERE ?

Fort is located just next to WARANGAL city.

WHEN ?

The Hanging bridge – LAKNAVARAM

  IMG_20150326_181526[1]

Haiguys , how are you all doing? I wanted to make this post yesterday , but i was in half depression . First of all  ,india lost the match . Then half way through ‘MONK’ there was a power cut , just before he was going to announce who the killer was.

In the end when i tried to upload pictures for post they started some kind of strike . I had to compress them.

In the previous travel post we talked about RAMAPPA . Today in Travel we will discuss about  a less known beautiful place  in warangal , that is LAKNAVARAM.

Laknavaram is actually name of huge lake of about 10000 acres with 100 + islands. The credit of discovering this lake goes again to Kakathiya rulers. This is located in warangal dist , about 80 km from warangal.  The journey is through a dense forest which offers some great feel ( at least to me )

When we reach the area from distance ,we see a lake with an L shaped  yellow bridge on it. When we go close we realize it to be a hanging one. ( they say this bridge is the only one of its kind in telangana and andhra Pradesh.)

                        Entrance is paid. There are some stairs which take us to the bridge. At the entrance of the bridge & in the middle there are warning signs which prohibit us from jumping or doing anything of that kind . ( when no one was around I jumped  like a monkey. The bridge swayed like hell. But still it was fun. )

It’s a very good place for family picnics, weekend getaways , tours with friends.

WHERE ?

As I told earlier , it is located 80 kms from warangal. 6 kms from Govindaraopet.

HOW  ?

You can only reach by road . You can not really depend on public transportation. If you are taking a vehicle cover both RAMAPPA, LAKNAVARAM. If you want to stay in resorts it is advisable to book through telangana tourism website.

WHAT ?

You can escape from your polluted routine & come here to stay in the HARITHA LAKEVIEW RESORT here .I had no time but I actually wanted to stay here. This is a very beautiful place to spend a night or two. Boating is also available.

There is a garden & small play zone for children.

WHEN ?

Actually there is no time specification. But my advice is to choose some time between late rainy season to winters , because the place is extremely hot  even from Feb.

 

Food?????

In the distance of 10-15 kms, there are 2 haritha restaurants. These are the only decent places to have some food. Near the lake you can not find anything except Haritha resto.

So consider this place if you are planning a short holiday. If have doubt’s let me know.
