Bidar: An interesting place at the northern tip of Karnataka

Overview: Living in Bangalore and belonging to Southern Karnataka, its very difficult for me to explore the far away districts of Karnataka. Luckily because of a friend’s wedding I got a chance to explore Bidar. Though there are very limited places to see in & around Bidar, the places are very interesting and worth seeing. I explored the following 3 places in Bidar during my trip. Click on each of the place to view description:
1) Bidar Fort
2) Jharni Narasimhaswamy temple
3) Gurudwara Nanak Jhira
How to reach: Bus/Train: KSRTC Volvo buses ply from Bangalore to Bidar everyday. Bidar can also be reached by train by 16594 Bangalore-Nanded Link express which leaves Bangalore City at 11pm everyday and reaches Bidar at 3:10pm the following day. The return train leaves Bidar at 12:30pm everyday and reaches Bangalore City at 6:10am the following day.
By Bike/Car: The best route by own vehicle can by by taking NH 7 to Hyderabad, before entering Hyderabad, turn towards Zaheerabad to reach Bidar.
Food/Accommodation: There are quite some good Hotels and Lodges near the bus stand and railway station for accommodation.

  2. The northern most places are mostly avoided because of the heat and the long distance travel but good to see this from you, really gives an insight to the places and people there.

    There is also a Jungle Lodges resort at Bidar and plenty of bird and wildlife around Bidar. The endangered 'Great Indian Bustards' and the Blackbucks can be seen around the grasslands here :)
