The Bhongiri Fort was built during the 10th Century on a single Rocky Hill, by the Western Chalukyan king, Tribhuvana Malla Vikram Aditya VI. Historical structures of the Kings reflect the glory of the era, like a mirror, even after years of decadence.
One Day Picnic Spots around the City are always all time favorite Getaways for working couples and families who cannot afford a long vacation to far off distant lands, even within the country. It’s here, to such people in and around Hyderabad, Bhongiri comes as a respite. You can go on any weekend, unwind, relax, indulge in rock climbing, inhale fresh air, and return back the same evening, and all this, without a hole in your pocket.
Children should be taught to love Nature. They are so much addicted to electronic gadgets that they hardly spend time in the lap of Nature. Mobile is the biggest enemy of the present generation. Laptop, Tablet, Mobile and or TV – Keep your children away from them all, at least for a while. Nurture them to love Nature.
Forts are usually not built on plains, but on hilly terrains, so that the elevation helps the Soldiers keep an eye at a distance to see if the enemy is on its way to invade. That was the technicality.
What makes these Forts alluring to the Tourist/Wanderer is their strategic locations and their elevations, which afford a bird’s eye view.
Last Sunday, we decided to spend our day at this Fort. It’s just 50 KMs from Hyderabad on Warangal Highway. Recently, the Highway has been widened and well carpeted which makes the ride smoother and faster. With just one Toll Gate, you need not worry about shelling lots of money paying the toll fee, which is a great relief. I am one of those who hate paying Toll fees, rather, I would, someday want to start a crusade against this atrocity on travelers.
