Thanks for sharing this post Gowtham. This is very helpful for us to go on a short drive from our hectic weekdays.

There are few forts like Bhongir, Rachakonda, Devarakonda near Nalgonda which are below 150kms I guess. And also Medak fort. Are these forts worth visiting? I think there are many forts near nalgonda, mahabubnagar, nizamabad.

Heard that Bhongiri fort is worth a visit. Will try to visit this place on this month and will update you guys.

Perfect report Gowtham.

All the places mentioned are defiantly worth a visit.

I fit for your description.

Many other small places are missed out but they are definitely not worth it.

You can also add Bidar fort to the list.. however it's not worth for a road trip...

Jaffargadd fort is in Warangal..
There are two routes to reach the place.
1. Route 1 is Warangal Highway - station ganpur - take right and need to touch Suryapet Vijayawada highway
2. Route 2 is Vijayawada highway and we need to take left towards station ganpur..
Road is under repair for 4 lane extension. However its not too bad road. :)
The fort is very less explored place to anybody.
It's so vast in my opinion.
There is temple in the fort which needs a trek to reach it. You can google about the place..

Superb information @etoor . I keep visiting Warangal quite frequently but haven't of this place anytime. Thanks a lot for throwing some light on such an unexplored place. Can you share the pictures if you have any?
