Trip To Mantralayam from Hyderabad

Recommended Posts

This is in continuation to the Travelogue posted about SriRangapuram

 

 

After having peaceful and Good Darshan at SriRangapur Temple , We Planned to go ahead for Mantralayam and as we have started from Pebbair - hit the highway ,after crossing Beechupally at Erravelli we decided to take Gadwal Route to reach Mantralayam 

- Planned to do little shopping of sarees  at Gadwal but nothing so great there - almost same prices as we get here in city - Instead of coming back we decided to proceed further and asked a car Driver regarding the route : He suggested was to go Via : Gattu - Macherla (TS KA Border one) and It touches Raichur Mantralayam Road

 

** Road was good initially and for some kms we were driving alone and the place looked like a Desert with open lands and less vegetation and After crossing Macherla I think Road was Horrible for 4 kms - horrible it was all pebbles and car has taken max abuses 4kms was like hell : something cant come back and confused to go ahead.

 Once reaching highway :Raichur Mantralayam  Road was very beautiful but some Jay walkers and little traffic .

 

 

Reached Manralayam and took room by Devasthanam - SUYAHENDRA VISHRANTI NILAYAM they have some really great rooms and Very very big Car Parking place - being rainy season opted for Non AC and they were kind enough to give room of our choice like Ground floor and western Toilet : and charged 400Rs with 400Rs as Caution Deposit - Rooms are neat and well maintained But no supply of Hot water for this category of Rooms  .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Had Good Darshan and started Next Day after having Prasadam at Temple and this time we took Kurnool Route : one to avoid that road which we have come and also to do Alampur Jogulamba One of AsthaDasha  Shaktipeetha  Darshan . Road we took was via Emmiganur to Kurnool  - ** Road was very Good till Emmiganur and some bits and pieces road was not good but can be manageable and its double road. Please beware of the road traffic - i saw many buses and also equally traffic at villages - After reaching Kurnool we took Bypass and Reached Alampur after travelling some distance  on Highway and took detour towards left .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Alampur Temple has car parking space but they would charge 50 Rs and Darshan everything was peaceful - we need to walk little to reach Jogulamba Temple. Very Limited food options at the temple and while on the way too - started back from Alampur at 5:00 P:M and except a short bio break and Tea Break at Food Pyramid it was all straight drive till Hyderabad But Post Jadcherla to be specific Shadnagar premises beware  of the Traffic and some rash driving - wonder why people drive so mad and that continued till crossing shamshabad and i think evening is worst time to enter Hyderabad it seems.                          Posting the Pictures in serial order right from starting from Pebbair to Gadwal Mantralayam and Back .

-- Started by 01:00 P:M  from Mantralayam and Took Kurnool Road Via Emmiganur and Road was Super Good 4 Lane till Emmiganur and it was double road till reaching Kurnool and day time we might encounter good traffic and needs to be careful as I saw some bikers driving so reckless and Jay walkers crossing road at their wish .

-- Alampur Temple is around 11 kms from Highway and very less to no traffic is encountered and road condition is good : Parking space is available at 50 Rs as mentioned previously .There is a small Garden kind  and Tungabhadra River flows near by 

Road condition from Mantgralayam Emmiganur and few snaps of Alampur and TungaBhadra river  follows

That roads looks horrible .. Few years ago during my trip, it was in the same state too.. Night drive on this stretch would be a risky one.. Thanks for sharing it with some informative pictures.. :)

excellent write-up and pics! it's always better to go via kurnool to mantralayam. shouldn't trust google shortcuts as it will try to redirect us, we are on the kurnool highway.  we did that mistake and ended up being on terrible village road for 70 kms. but the scenery was worth, but we got delayed by 2 hours.

By experience, I have learnt not to follow Google Maps blindly during the drive as the route gets redirected at times. I always be sure to make a note of the major towns enroute to pass through during my drive which I feel is the best thing to do.
