    Those were only two points in bijapur for me,so decided to move ahead towards Hampi.the destination was to reach Hospet.
    this is first National Highway on my trip.it was awesum to drive and keeping the average speed @90Kmph.

    In the evening @9:30 pm we reached Hospet and stayed in one of our family friend's home and next day morning started to Hampi,which is 15 Kms away from Hospet.

    Here i want to thank puntosat(TFI member) for letting me know in advance for the famous points in Hampi.

    Started with Virupakshi Temple ,inside the temple you can find the gajanana welcoming you

    Let the picture speaks about Hampi,when you reach hampi you wont talk much rather just seeing the art and trying to go back to the history and feel like to sit on a throne and keep giving the orders and finally having a narthaki in front of you to complete your mythological illusion.(Raaja- dhi- Raaaja Yammunda....)

    After TB Dam came back to home(family friend's) had a night stay and that was the end of 5th Aug .
    The next destination was to move to Srisailam Andhrapradesh,as already planned the route was to drive from
    Hospet-Bellary-Guntakal-Gooty-Kurnool-Dornala-Srisailam.(413 Kms)
    the roads from Hospet till kurnool are not good at all.you cant drive continously even @80Kmph,veru bad shape due to the mining and heavy loaded trucks and also due to the location of near by Jindal Steel located at Toranagal.
    After crosing bellary finally we were welcomed by Andhrapradesh :)
