Know Raichur in a Day
Greet the sunrise: Raichur Fort
If you start your trip early with the break of the dawn, you would not only get to see a beautiful sunrise from the top of a majestic fort but also avoid the scorching sun of the afternoon.
Although, you can climb the hill from any side on which the grand ruins of the Raichur Fort rest, but to save time try to start your journey from the Takiwale Baba Dargah. Once you rich the summit, you would have a splendid view of the city, the serene Aam Talab adjacent to the fort and ruins of another fort in the horizon. Don't forget to take plenty of pictures.
Once you have taken in the sun and its warmth, you can head over to explore rest of the fort. After the trek you can sit down on one of the rocks and relax for sometime, and if you are hungry you can nibble on something. Now that the short rest is over, gather up your travelling spirit and head down for your next destination.
Brunch with Ek-Minar-ki-Masjid
At this point of time, it will be somewhere around mid afternoon, so what you can do is either go back to your room, freshen up and take a quick nap. Or if your travelling spirits are still high, you can visit the Fort Jami Masjid, one of the biggest mosque in the town built during the Adil Shahi dynasty. The mosque is also said to contain the graves of the family members of Adil Shahi dynasty.
Now that you are done with the most important tourist attractions of the city, you can head out to one of the eateries for a good lunch.
Nirvana on the Island
Make sure that it doesn't get too dark while coming back from the island. As soon as you are back to the town, you can do a bit of shopping and sit back to enjoy a cup of hot coffee or chilled cocktail to wind up for the day. And don't forget to have the special Jolada Rotti, which is a specialty of North Karnataka cuisine.
