    Its just 100 km from Hyderabad. Good for a day trip on weekend. Long drive, calm road, beautiful dam, clean water. What else for a trip. Carry some food along as there are no good restaurants nearby. Enjoy your day. No need to plan. Go impulsive.

    Just a 20 minute drive on way back from yadagirigutta temple, this is one of the mist visit places.

    Be sure to have a heavy breakfast before entering the place. Visit in the morning so you can spend your entire day touring the place. Carry umbrella and other sun protection or choose a cloudy day for your visit.

    The place is a 3-4 Kms walk inside with few benches around to rest. There are strategically placed cafeterias inside discouraging outside food. The quality of these cafes could be a lot better.

    The mythological park has images of all famous temples of india, scenes from Mahabharata and Ramayana narrating the stories and few other stories from the epics. The sculptures are beautiful and the design of the park inspires admiration for the creator. Definitely a must visit. Be prepared to get tired.

    It is a great place for kids but be sure that they can handle the strain of continuous walk. You can easily spend half a day here.

    A very ancient Shiva temple built during the 12th century. It is well maintained and there is a pond as well. There is enough parking space.

    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

    Special: Maha Shivarathri Festival

    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.

    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.

    Temple Timings:
