    Kadiri Srisailam ghat road with narrow for 25 30 kms. Take care of bottom scrapping.
    Safe journey.

    I would suggest to put these places on Google map and see if you can streamline and same time.
    I feel someplace are overlapping.



    Instead of going to ganagapur and coming back to akkalkot-tulajpur and again going back to ganagapur
    You can take this route instead.

    Gulbarga-Akkalkot-solapur-Tulzapur-Ganagapur-Halt (avoid going via umarga it has a very bad patch)

    Please note roads in Maharashtra are not in good condition please plan accordingly.

    All the best for your trip. Do let me know if you need anything when you are in Bidar :)

    Thanks for inputs. Seems like Srisailam & Mantralaya are booked due to season time. Trying some luck for accommodation now.
    How many kms is Jharni Narasimha temple from Bidar? Any good sight seeing places around Gulbarga/Bidar. Please advice.
    Probably I may modify the places to visit.

    She is called "maate mahadevi" who is a saint and is the one behind the development of that statue.
    Exactly, you can see it from nh9. It is in between umarga and humnabad
