Jamshedpur - Tirupati - Hyderabad - Jamshedpur

Trip from Jamshedpur to Tirupati
It was my dream to do a road trip from Jamshedpur, East Singhbhum, Jharkhand to Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh on a car with my family. Earlier I had done trips to South on my Motorcycle, Scooter as well as car, but my dream was to do on a brand new car. I bought a Maruti Wagonr LX in 18th July 2005 and I cherished my dream December 2008 when I made road trip on my Wagon R from Jamshedpur – Puri – Visakhapatnam – Vijayawada – Tirupati – Vellore – Sripuram – Tirupati – Cuddapah – Kurnool – Hyderabad and back from Hyderabad via Vijayawada – Visakhapatnam – Puri – Bhubaneswar – Jamshedpur total covering 4,785 kms .
My family myself B.V.Vinod Kumar, my wife B.V.Meena, my two daughters B.V.Vimeeta aged 15 yrs and my younger daughter B.V.Vidita aged 5 started our pleasure cum adventure journey on 19th December 2008 and completed our Journey on 4th January 2009. Planning for this trip nearly took a month as we had too book hotels in advance. Only modifications in my wagon R was that I had installed was a luggage carrier to put four VIP bags one for each so that my children can have few winks in the car, further to carrier I had put fog lights in my car.
On 19th morning Friday we started our trip early morning 5:30 pm from Jamshedpur and our first destination was puri. Early morning from Jamshepur to Baharagora the weather was quite foggy and we could barely see 100 meters. We travelled slowly as morning heavy trucks were plying. The fog as well the climate was little bit sunny till we reached Baripada and by afternoon 1:00 pm we reached Bhubaneswar. We had lunch at Bhubaneswar and we all relaxed little bit during lunch By 2:00 pm we proceeded to our 1st destination Puri and reached puri by 3:00 pm. We checked in at Hotel Sairam, unpacked our bags and freshened up. Later in evening we visited the famous Jagannath Temple and then went to Puri beach and enjoyed the evening at beach. We took a early dinner so that we can ample rest so that we can start our jouney next day early morning.
On 20th we got up early, took bath, packed our bags and were bound to our next destination Visakhapatnam. Early morning from Puri to Bhubaneswar we faced again dense fog and we drove slowly.

25th December morning we went to Vellore and reached Sripuram the golden temple , the temple was magnificent and its architecture was splendid and remarkable. My advise anyone who visit Tirupata, they should visit Golden Temple , Sripuram. For details of Sripuram one can visit www.sripuram .org. By evening we reached Triupati and had our night stay at tirupati. On 26th morning we had a early start at 6:30 am and we reached Hyderabad by 5:15 pm via Cuddpah, Kurnool, Mahabhubnagar via NH7. The traffic at Hyderabad was very congested and we reached our brother’s place ay Kukutpally by night 8:00 pm. The stretch from Tirupati to Hyderabad was quite tiring and on 25th we had early dinner and took rest. We stayed at Hyderabad for three days. And there we visited my relatives, friends and had sight seeing of Hyderabad and saw Ramoji Film city and Chilkurau Balaji Temple at R.R Dist. This is known as visa temple.
