Godavari Pushkar - a bath once in 144 years?

Friday 17-07-2015
Left home at 6 pm in an auto-rick and reached Hebbal Esteem Mall. Telangana State Road Transport Corporation (TSRTC) bus came at 7-30 pm.

Saturday 18-07-2015:
Reached Jubilee Hills in a cab and took possession of the Myles/Carzonrent Honda

My wife and kid found a lot of scratches which I could not.  We made sure that the attendant noted each of these (I took below photos to be extra careful)

We then went to Mahathma Gandhi Bus Stand in Hydrebad and took up a room for Rs.1,100/-. We had milk at a restaurant and left to Godavari river about 200 kilometers away.

Below is my daughter posing with the car after taking a holy dip in the Godawari river (at a place called Satapur bordering Maharashtra).

We left Godavari river bank at 5-30 pm and reached Hyderabad at 10 pm. We returned the car after filling the diesel for 1K.

We returned to the hotel room in an auto andgot up the morning for another sojourn to Charminar in an auto-rick.

 One can see the time of the day in the big clock on the Charminar.

 This is at the Lakhsmi Temple inside Charminar.

While returning to hotel, we asked the auto fellow to wait for a few minutes, as we browsed through the different items on sale on the footpath.  We also purchased a couple of clothing.

We caught the 9 am bus to return home (Bangalore) at 10 pm
