Hope you guys are having a great weekend. So it's another Saturday and am back with another travelogue about a ride I went on today.
This is about a ride to a Historic Fort town called Gudibande, which is around 100 KM towards the North of Bangalore. The fort apparently was built in the 17th century by a Chieftain Byre Gowda. Though I couldn't find out the exact purpose for which it was built, but it is said that the temple on the fort top is home to One of the 108 Jyotirlingas.

Sun wasn't out yet, but the myriad of shades of blue that filled the sky which changed every minute of me driving on the highway that chased away the sleepiness that was leftover. It was like the nature holding my head, looking straight into my eyes and saying, Bro you woke up so early for something, witness it while it's happening. Enjoy them shades turning brighter from the darkness. And so I looked,
