Default Weekend Trip to Chikka Tirupathi

It was a Sunday evening. I was thinking where to venture today as I was getting bored at home. Suddenly thought of visiting this place. I took the route VIA ITPL as this is was near to me. Started here by 4 PM. Drive from KR Puram- ITPL-O Farm Junction. Took the straight road in that junction. The road is pathetic, huge pot holes. Few times my Fusion got the Bottom. Reached Chikka Tirupathi temple Just before evening. It is just a small Temple. Nothing much to see there. Performed a small puja too. While coming I was reluctant to come via same route. So asked a local person and he suggested to take the route via Sarjapura. This route is comparatively better than the Previous one. We reached near to HSR lay out by 7 PM. Just had a small break for tea and snacks near after crossing Sarjapura town. Driving was a pleasure as there was not much vehicle on the road.
Approx KM - 100KM (Onward+Return).

I also saw the Prestige Shantiniketan building massacare. The building fell like a playing card...Hope this should not happen while peopl start staying...

I'm sure you shall not like this post of mine. Seeing the overcast skies in the pics I am more worried about the ODi at Chinnaswamy...LOL.

Coming back to the subject, a few pictures of the road travelled upon would have been a great help for others too planning such a trip...

Drive from KR Puram- ITPL-O Farm Junction.
It's Hope Farm friend.
The drive from Chikka Tirupati to Sarjapur is a nice scenic drive isn't it?
