Hyderabad Weekend Getaway: Bijapur

This was one of my first two day trips. About 380 KM away from Hyderabad, Bijapur is a city of historic importance. Check out the Wikipedia article about Bijapur to know more about the historic monuments located in this city.
Route: Hyderabad – Pathancheru – Humnabad – Gulbarga – Bijapur
We started at around 8:00 AM on a Saturday morning. Had Breakfast at Pathancheru and reached Gulbarga by 1:00 PM. Had lunch at Gulbarga. There are excellent vegetarian and non-vegetarian hotels in Gulbarga.  Gulbarga is another historic city, however my plan didn’t include visiting historic monuments of Gulbarga. At around 2:00 PM, we started the journey towards Bijapur. Reached Bijapur at about 5:30 PM. Checked-in into a decent hotel. There are several hotels/lodges in Bijapur… as such I didn’t find the necessity to book the hotel online prior to travel.  The price per room ranges from Rs.500 to Rs.2000 depending on facilities in the room.
Spend the evening visiting couple of monuments. On Sunday morning,  visited Gol Gumaz, Bijapur fort, etc.
Started return journey to Hyderabad at around 12:00 noon … reached Hyderabad by 9:00 PM in the evening.

Enjoyed your blog on Bijapur. You mentioned that you wanted to visit Gulbarga also. I have been to Gulbarga, city in karnataka, famous for toordal Pigeon pea and the limestone deposits. It has the largest collection of Islamic art and there are various places to visit in Gulbarga which are adorned with painting containing various designs.
