The city of Nizams, Hyderabad is a treat for tourists. But if you’ve had enough of the same Old Town hustle and bustle, it’s time to look for something different.

To relax and not be disturbed by crowds, to admire natural wonders and ancient architecture, you must be on the lookout for destinations around the city to spend the weekend.

Here are our suggestions.

Medak, a small town in Telangana, is home to Medak Fort, which witnessed the history of the Kakatiya Empire and has an influence on both Hindu and Islamic style architectures.

You can walk to the fort on top of a hill.

Medak Cathedral Church has stories from the life of Christ engraved in stained glass windows.

Also visit Pocharam Wildlife Sanctuary, Edithanur Caves and Singur Dam.

The Belum Caves were discovered by British surveyor Robert Bruce Foote in 1884.

The arch-like formation resembles a lion’s head and is therefore called Simhadwaram.

The cave has a stone formation dating back to when Buddhist monks used to meditate inside caves.

A major attraction is the sounds created by the stalactites of the Saptasvarala Guha when you hit the rocks.

The Akkamahadevi Caves near Srisailam are located in the Nallamalla Forest and are accessible by boat.

The caves are named after the 12th century saint Akkamahadevi who worshiped Lord Shiva.

Climb the Krishna River to reach a place from where a short hike will take you to the cave.

You can book a ride from Patala Ganga ghat.

Located in Adilabad district, Telangana, Kanakai Waterfall on Kadem River is close to a small village called Girnoor of Bazarhatnoor Mandal.

There are actually three waterfalls in a small area.

Also called Kanakadurga waterfalls, villagers come to offer their prayers to Goddess Kanaka Durga in the temple.

The whole area is covered with thick vegetation and sharp rock formations.

Pakhal Wildlife Sanctuary

The flora consists of mixed forests, bamboo forests and teak.

This lake was built on a tributary of the Krishna River by King Kakatiya Ganapati Deva in 1213 AD to serve for irrigation purposes.
