As I had to complete it within a short time, I made a 4 days plan which supports our health and energy level. First day reach Warangal and take lodge nearby railway station. You will find a lot with affordable price range and accommodation. Take rest that day. Plan for the next day early morning, hire auto for Bhadrakali temple (if you are going with group of 4/5 people, it will be best visit for you), it will take around 20 min from your lodge if you are staying nearby railway station. As you are hiring auto they may ask insane amount, bargain wisely. I would suggest hire auto for Bhadrakali temple as well as 1000 pillar temple, as both are not so far. So this way you can cover these places.
Next will be Ramappa temple. From 1000 pillar go to Hanamkonda Central Bus Stand , from there you will get express as well as local bus for Mulugu, it will take around 1 hr to reach the bus stand then from there take another bus for Palampet, it will take around 20 min. Remember, you cannot go directly to the place by a single bus even though all are in same route. If you hire car from Warangal you can go directly. But I must say buses are very convenient and easy going. Anyway from Palampet you need to take auto to reach to the temple, if you are not going with family person, I suggest cover it by walk. You will enjoy the journey. By auto from Palampet to temple it takes 7 mins only.
Okay, on the same side of railway station you will get Bhadrakali temple, 1000 pillar and Ramappa. But in opposite side you will get Warangal fort, which is worth visiting. It is not so far from railway station but you need hire an auto by going opposite side of railway station and by reaching there by auto it will take around 10 mins only. Even though the fort area is well maintained but it is destructed almost now a days. But you will surely like it. It will get closed around 5:30 pm.
Now we can move to Hyderabad or Secunderabad. Most of the places are well connected from both the cities, but it is better to choose Secunderabad. Why because bus stand is adjacent to the Secunderabad railway station and all buses are well connected throughout the city. You can go to Ramoji Film city, Singhi temple which are on the same side. It will take around 2 hours max by bus. In other side you may go to Hussain Sagar lake where you will find Neckless road, Buddha statue, Lumbini park, Snow world, NTR garden, Biggest National flag hoist etc. All are surrounded by Hussain Sagar only. From Secunderabad bus stand numerous buses are there for Hussain sagar and it takes around 25 min max. If you want to cover all the spots in same day, you may not be getting chance but you can choose places like Lumbini garden, Light and sound, Neckless road and Hussain sagar Buddha statue. Go to neckless road at last in the evening for walk and food shops. Another temple near by Hussain sagar is Birla temple. You may find a little bit difficulty due to lack of frequent buses between Hussain sagar and Birla temple. One thing about Birla temple, even though it looks nice but camera is not allowed inside the temple compound. So photographers be alert. Lol.
For Golkonda fort there are 2/3 buses from Secunderabad bus stand. You may not get direct bus from there, you may have to do break journey. For that you need to get bus from Secunderabad bus stand to come to Mehdipatnam bus stand. From there you will get bus for Qutub Shahi tombs which will come first and then Golkonda fort. Remember one thing, total compound of both the places are huge, I repeat huge. Take a guide, you can enjoy. For Golkonda fort, old people or persons who have heart and breathing problem, should not go to top.
From there you will find direct bus for Char Minar, Laad bazar, Mecca Masjid, Chowmahalla palace, Nizam Place etc. You can buy real Pearl from nearby market besides Char Minar. All these places are nearby, so you can take one full day to cover these places.
Another offbeat yet fantastic place is Dichpally Ramalayam Temple which is way far form the city but it is easily accessible by express bus from JUBILEE BUS STATION. By bus it takes around 3 hours. You need to get down in Dichpally bus stand, from there you have to take auto inside the village. Auto will take around 10 min only.
