    Mileage:- it's less but enjoyed the harsh drive from guntur to hyd.and also the heat of andhra made me to keep my car most of the time ON with AC ON.

    Early in the morning at 7 am removed the cover of my punto and went for a drive of 10 KMs to conclude whether everything is fine.after confirming the best:cool: out of my punto been to filling station which is away 5 kms from my home town if i opt to fill in city the diesel cost is 45.27 INR and in outside of the city costs me 44.85 INR ;).hence had a full tank there.

    So all set for the journey.

    4th AUg 2012:-
    Left my home towm miraj in the morning at 8:55 am,the first target was to reach Bijapur by 1 pm,hence acccordingly evrything went on time.
    reached bijapur,though there was manier historic points to see in bijapur i managed to see only GolGummaz (built by adil shah) and the Shiva(105 feets of statue) temple

    Let Picture speak

    Few Words about GolGummaz:-

    It was bliss to see the golgummaz especially the echo effect in the dome,whispering sound also can easily be heard at the other end,it was great to see the engineering from those days.Once you reach on top of the dome,you can find everyone shouting and listening to the echo.Worth to watch it !

    Few snaps of the Punto in bijapur:-
