We covered Hyderabad -Belum caves-Gandikota-Hyderabad in a day, driving for almost 24hours. The trip had everything you could ask for – fun, friends, family and food. When you plan a trip to gandikota do plan to stay there overnight. The Canyon looks amazing during Sunrise and Sunset.
Airavat as I fondly call it, poses over Owk Reservoir just before Belum Caves.
As you enter Belum Caves a majestic Buddha statute welcomes you. The statue is on the right.
And you enter Belum Caves. Belum.JPG
The second longest cave line in India.
This is what water can do to rocks over the years.
The grand entrance to Gandikota Fort. Inside the fort you have houses where people still live. The fort has its own jail, masjid, temple and grainary.
Clock tower at the central chowk of the fort.
And this is where people used to store their grains for future use.
And finally the this is what Gandikota is famous for. The grand canyon of India.
A nice sunset and we call it a day.
