After visiting  Raichur  my friend decided that since I m staying there for good three days we might as well visit Hyderabad or gulbarga.  Gulbarga  won as it was easy to cover than the former , we set out driving with AC on full blast to beat the heat of the plateau's. First stop on the way was at Mauneshwar Temple and the epic part about this place is you find temple on the ground floor and on the first floor one would find Darga , we where fascinated and concluded Mauneshwar must be (Mohammed Eshwar) unity in diversity felt proud . 

But only glitch is that visiting this place will extend journey by good 180 Kms 
After drinking gallons of water ,singing out loud,dozing off ,begging sun to reduce heat reached gulbarga . on way to Khwaja bande nawaz darga we saw tombs within  a compound which got us curious on visiting it we found that this place was called saat  gummat which means seven tomb this housed tomb of adil shahis

The vihar consists of statues of freedom fighters , ashoka pillar ,ashoka chakra statue of budhha with light music playing in the background and we also have meditating place at basement with a statue of budhha Sitting calmly. Peaceful place must visit. Missed Gulbarga fort as the roads heading towards it was under construction . After dinner we headed back to Raichur which was Approx 5 hrs journey
