Hi
I'm planning to do my next jotirlingya visit (Mallikarjuna) in end of December. Initially thought of Rameswaram, Kanyakumari et al, but tickets are very expensive and very crowded so changed the plan.

Here is my itinerary :

Day 1 : Morning flight to Hyderabad, city sightseeing stay overnight
Day 2 : Take bus/car and reach to Srisailam by afternoon, visit temple, roaming around, stay overnight
Day 3 : Morning Puja, Sakshi Ganapati, local sight seeing, stay over night
Day 4 : Leave early morning, back to Hyderabad, flight in the evening


Questions :
1. I checked Telengana travel tourism site TSRTC and looks like bus facilities are nice and planning to book it. Which boarding point should I pick? In Srisailam dropping point, how far would be the AP tourism HARITHA hotel?

2. If I travel by bus, will it stop at the dam or any other view point or it is just a point to point service.

3. As I'll be travelling with my 67 yrs old mom, I'm not sure if I should try Pathalganga and Akkamahadevi Caves. Even if I do, I won't go inside the caves, may be the ropeway and boat ride. What is your suggession? Is it possible or I should give it a miss? If I do, do I need one extra day?

4. Any specific suggession for the temple; like phone not allowed or disturbance of pandas or some hidden rules I should be aware of.

Thanks in advance

Hyderabad requires two days. Car is better for Srisailam.

Thanks Vaibhav, yes, Hyderabad needs two days, but I'll give a miss to film studio as I don't have enough days.
Could you please little elaborate why you feel car is better for Srisailam?

Oh, walk to ropeway from Haritha hotel is about 3-4 kms. Sakshi ganapati is 2 km in different direction. Probably there will be an auto in case you're thinking of using the bus, cannot say for sure.

I thought for a moment that you meant to travel across the town in which case I quite agree..

Well, he's in a hurry - suppose you can do the main attractions in a whistle-stop tour over two days. Half a day for Golconda and the nearby seven tombs, evening by the Charminar / laad bazaar. Next day at the Salar Jung, and evening by Husain Sagar. Barely scratches the surface but hey, check check check ....

Hello friends,
Happy new year and Sorry for the late reply.
We visited Hyderabad and Srisailam in the end of December. Hyderabad was obviously hectic. From Airport, we first went to Golconda fort, then spent few time in Charminar and Chowmahalla palace. I didn't want to visit the Salar Jung Museum in a hurry and so gave a miss this time. Had lunch in Paradise and then visited Birla Mandir and Hussain Sagar in the afternoon and evening and reached hotel at 7 or so.
NExt day we went for Srisailam, we boarded at 8am by bus(a cute Vajra bus). The AP/Telangana Tourism Bus service is awesome and roads are excellent. We reached Srisailam in the afternoon, visited mandir and Jotirlingya on that day and next day also, went nearby places, but couldn't do the Patalganga as my mom got little sick.
We came back on fourth day and boarded flight in the evening.
Srisailam is a small but wonderful place, a suggested place for those interested in holy places as well as for nature lovers. So both me and my mom were happy .
Thanks everyone for helping. Happy and safe travels to all
