So, the next day the king followed the eagle and found the Lord Vishnu idol between Karapakala hills and Kothakota. He constructed this beautiful Ranganayaka Swamy temple close to the Ratna Pushkarini Lake and Lord instructed to build temple at a place where the Eagle disappears - thats how a temple has been constructed here and there is a huge water body where a reservoir is also built . It took 35 years to complete the temple and its an architecture marvel - ideal for Bird Lovers and Nature Lovers for its serene and Peaceful atmosphere and Surroundings Toilets are available near the temple and small shop where one can have some snacks or packed chips , cool drinks and water bottles are available. I have seen few pre-wedding photo shoots from near by villagers happening at this place and this temple has also been shown in different telugu movies and few by SS Rajamouli too Temple Timings: The temple is open for the visitors from Morning 6:00 AM to 1:00 PM and Evening 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM. -- We Started at 6:00 A: from Hyderabad - Except Crossing Shamshabad No traffic has been encountered and cool nice breezy weather added much to the Monday Morning Drive and we could reach the Temple by 9:30 Route was all straight like arrow and Turn towards Pebbair and From there around 11 kms inside we could reach the temple Let the Pics do the talking

    @Rangeri see this as the next destination .. how difficult is the terrain overall? During my Spiti trip i found driving post 9pm towards reckong peo to be the toughest and post sunset at Hikkim/Koumik... When you were describing the roads my brain was remembering these roads ... So you took Mirik route only to go towards Nepal is it? What was total km covered? Duster got new tyres before the trip (they look fresh ). How commercial is sikkim compared to shimla and manali (not the spiti valley)?

    Fantastic trip guys, congratulations! You guys earned it, unlike the commercial crowd who travel via Air. Good to see that you guys have decided to start the log. It is a lengthy trip. Capturing all the details will be very difficult. Try to post the pictures/details on Day to Day basis. You can follow the below format. https://www.india-drive.com/index.php?/topic/1019-hyderabad-to-sikkim-road-trip/

    Wow @ksa171983, There you go finally..! This post of yours really motivates me to finish up with my recent Rajasthan trip log too Next time when you visit Jaisalmer, You should not miss to visit Tanot (India-Pakistan) border and Longewala war museum. The drive to Tanot is beautiful and exciting as really good tarmac is laid to run your wheel through the desert land. You will need to have necessary permission to reach till the border fence of the country.
