Hyderabad is the capital city of Telangana state, well known for its rich culture and diversity. There are numerous weekend getaways from Hyderabad to various places, yet travelling to Kurnool by bus is a good option. With a few locations in the line, where the rich and respectable cultural heritage is highlighted in Hyderabad. The local street cuisine to savour your taste buds and far more, the city has a never-ending record of stunning places that will absolutely make your weekend an excellent one. One of the weekends, I planned to visit Kurnool by bus from Hyderabad. The road distance of 212kms and it took around 5 hours to reach Kurnool. I booked online bus tickets from redbus.in that saved a lot of my time. Moreover allowed me to choose from the vast list of bus operators and bus types. Most of the places are well connected by roadways from Hyderabad. I selected the bus that well fitted all my requirements and enriched my bus travel experience.
I boarded the bus from Chintal pick up point at around 8:30pm and reached Kurnool at 2:00am. I was travelling in an Ac Seater bus that was clean and comfortable. The bus passed through various alluring landscapes, varied topography and broad highways. The bus was punctual, it came with ample leg space and clean interiors. I strongly prefer buses while travelling, as they are easy to access and cost effective. Kurnool is about 203 Kilometres away from Hyderabad by road and is should not take you more than 3 and a half hours by bus if you leave during the non peak hours.
Kurnool is location of historical worth with gorgeous surrounding areas. It is a small town in Andhra Pradesh where history left its imprints. I was looking forward to visit all the attractions in Kurnool like the Belum caves, Birla mandir, Oravakallu Rock Garden, Rollapadu Wildlife Sanctuary, Tomb of Abdul Wahab are other major spots. Heard a lot about the Kondareddy Buruz, which is preserved by the Ancient Monuments Preservation Act, is also one of the places of interests here. It is known to have ample of history associated with it. The last known king of Kurnool is said the Gopal Raju. The remains of historical times include a fort belonging to the Vijayanagar Empire. There are inscriptions in Arabic and Persian language over the walls of the fort. There is also a summer palace here that was built in the 16th century by the then rulers of Kurnool. AS you explore the place further you will realise that Kurnool is a place that blends history and religion together quite well. The locals have preserved and maintained the temples of Kurnool quite well over the decades.
