- We went out to Nagarjuna sagar dam on weekend. Its almost 160 km from Hyderabad. We started our journey around 6 AM on Friday with bike in the month of January 2020. It took 3 and half hour i.e by 9:30am we reached there. Since road was outstanding and so i took advantage of that. If you are bike rider then you should must go for long trip and trust me you will definitely enjoy the trip. In January gates were closed so we didn’t get chance to see falling water via dam. Even that time also we were feeling little bit hot there. You can see this beautiful place with it’s natural beauty. We drove here and there and enjoyed beauty. There is nothing much to visit except dam and few small stuffs like boating etc. At 1 pm we started looking for room, and so went Vijay vihar whose rate was 2600/- for weekend ( usually rates for weekend are high as compared to weekdays). If you need economical room, that is also available there which is Young hostel whose charge was telling 500 per day for single room. You can enjoy the boating there as well whose charge was Rs 100 for adult and 70 for kid.There was no much crowd that time. Next day we went to visit Ethipothala water fall which is about 16km away from there. There was not too much things except waterfall you can see there and for that also they charge Rs. 20/- apart from bike parking charge which is Rs. 10 in that forest area. After visiting that waterfall and taking some pics we started our journey to Hyderabad around 4 pm and again since road is excellent we came here by 7:40 pm. One thing i would like to say if you are planning to go then must bring your own food which might be essential. There was not too many shops so you might face issue while feeling hungry. If you are fond of long drive like me then must visit this place.

- Erakeswara Shiva Temple which is know as Pillalamarri Temple is build on the banks of the Musi River in Pillalamarri Village of Suryapet District Telangana. This temple was bulit by Erakasani in the year of 1208 CE. The deity Erakeswara is named after her. Erakeswara means lord of Erakasani.
This place is very interior and most of the people are not aware where it is so I am giving you location history with proper direction
Location: This temple is located in Pillalamarri which is 8 km distance from Suryapet Hi-tech bus stand. Take right turn after Hotel 9 on the Vijayawada-Hyderabad Nh67 highway when you are travelling from Suryapet.
There are total 4 temples in this village and almost all of them are constructed in the same period names of other 3 temples are
1. Nameshwara Temple
2. Trikuteshwara Temple
3. Chennakeshwara Temple
All are located within walkable distance. so plan to visit all 4 temples during your next visit

- It is basically a mythological theme park. There are huge statues of different mythological characters and depictions of many stories from Mahabharata and Ramayana. The statues and not exactly life like and seem a bit garish or gaudy, but the concept is good. You can take children there as they get quite fascinated by the stories and concepts, and also, they can know about the important events from the epics. But be prepared to walk, you need to follow the arrows placed on the floor to move around, and once you enter, it takes almost 2.5 to 3 hours to complete the tour. At many places, you have to climb and descend stairs, so it is not recommended for the elderly, if they have a problem to walk. There are benches placed at many places, but still, the stairs cannot be avoided. Drinking water is available in most places. There are 2 small canteens also, where you can get some refreshments and food. Toilets are available in a few places. Some parts of the pathway is shaded, but if you are going in summer, taking caps is recommended (and umbrellas during rainy season!). Tickets cost Rs.350/- per head. You are allowed to take pictures on your mobile, but if you want to carry the mobile, you have to pay Rs.100/- (per mobile). What is actually commendable is that the entire park has been constructed by the efforts of Mr Kunda Satyanarayana, who conceptualised the park and constructed it in the memory of his youngest son who passed away. He started it at the age of 60+ and it was completed after facing a lot of financial and other constraints.Written 11 June 2019

- The Musi Project is commenced in Jun, 1954 and completed in Feb. 1963. This is constructed across the Musi River near Solipet Village of Nalgonda District, Telangana State. This Project Designed storage is 4.6 TMC which is covering 30000 acres cultivation across 42 villages of Nalgonda Districts.
This project has 30 gates out of which 10 gates are permanently closed. In balance 20 gates 12 gates are Crest gates and 8 gates are regular gates. When we visited during rainy season of 2020 3 gates were opened and we were lucky to enjoy that atmosphere. This one we visited before 2020 floods.
It is one of the must visit place in Nalgonda district as I felt. People who all are travelling from Suryapet to Hyderabad, they can easily visit this if you are travelling by personal Vehicle. Take Right turn near Nakirekal and move strait to another 15 kms. its only one strait route and check with local people near solipet how to reach there. You can drive car near to Dam and then walk on Reservoir. View is so nice on the Dam and if you are going with Kids they will enjoy much.
Below I am giving information about Musi River and History as most of Hyderabad people love to know this
Musi River is Starting in Anathagiri Hills of Vikarabad District at an altude of 4660m and this place also must visit place and most of the Movie shootings happens here. Ananthagiri hills are @90 km distance from Hyderabad. From here Movie River travels 240 kms and joins Krishna River at Vadapally of Nalgonda District at an altitude of 61m.
On 28th Sep 1908 there was 17" Rain in Hyderabad City and then entire city was on floods. With the help of Sir M. Visvesvaraya, Nizam VII King constituted a City Improve Trust in 1912. Constructed Osman Sagar in 1920 and Himayat Sagar in 1927 to avoid floods and these two Lakes are major Drinking water source for Hyderbad. indiscriminate urbanization and lack of planning, again there were floods in City on 14th OCT2020.Written 15 March 2021
- Cheruvugattu Temple is located in Cheruvugattu village, Nalgonda District of Telangana State, which is on Narkatpally to Guntur Highway. It is 6 km away from Narkatpally and 22 km away from Nalgonda Districts.
We travelled from Hyderabad to Nalgonda Via Cheruvugattu. After this temple visit we travelled to Panagal and visited Chaya Someshwara Alayam, Pachala Someshwara Alayam and then Lord Venkateshwara Temple all these temples are located in Panagal village of Nalgonda District.
On the new moon day, devotees sleep in and around the temple for one night. Devotees believe that all their problems will be solved if they sleep inside or outside the temple.
An interesting fact about this temple is Muddu Gundlu, on which Shiva lingam is situated. Devotees can reach the place using the steps. Muddu Gundlu is located on three large rocks. You can only get there in stages, which are really very complicated and tricky. Before reaching to top mountain there is intricate pathway in which very thin persons only can go. Devotees try to go out from there and believes that who all have god blessings can come out of this way. others will climb top by other side of the steps. This is very unique experience one can find only here. You also don't forget to follow this path in your next visit
History of the Temple:
Sri Cheruvugattu Jadala Ramalingeswara Swamy Devasthanam is situated in chervugattu village which is in Narkethpally. It is said that when Sage Parashuram was leaving to avenge Kartavirys's death, Haiyas beheaded sage Jamadhagni. When this was learned by Parsuram he came back to the Asharam. There were a total of twenty one injuries because of the arrows on the deceased body. It is believed that sage parashuraman had sworn that he would slaughter the cruel Kshathriyas and then go back for performing penance on the Mahebdra Mountain. During the upsurge in evil warriors, Parsurama would return and kill them. Sage revolved around the earth 21 times to penalize and clear the earth from the evil Kshartiyas. The sage Parsurama built the temples of deities that varied across different territories. He did so while circumambulated the earth 21 times. Whilst doing so, he installed 108, Pilgrimage worthy temples for devotees to perform penance.
