Solipuram is a small village in the South Indian state of Telangana. The nearest major urban agglomeration is the city of Hyderabad at a distance of 93 km west. Ironically, Hyderabad also happens to be the capital city of the neighbouring state of Andhra Pradesh. Those with a taste for culture, Islamic architecture and South Indian temples can visit this place.
Places to Stay
Being a small village, hotel facilities are almost absent in the area, which is why one is forced to consider the capital city of Hyderabad. Some of the budget hotels which are worth exploring in the city are Tara International Hotel (Tariff – Rs. 1,000), Arihant Regency (Tariff – Rs. 500), Swagath Residency Hotel (Tariff – Rs. 600), Ashoka Hotel (Tariff – Rs. 800) and others.
The official language of the area is Telugu.
The important festivals celebrated are Ganesh Chathurthi in August-September, Ugadi in March-April, Diwali in October-November and the two Eid(s).
Places of Interest
The village in itself does not have any particular place of tourist attraction. One can always take a trip to Hyderabad and explore the Charminar, Mecca Masjid, Qutub Shahi Tombs, Golconda Fort, Hussain Sagar Lake, NTR Gardens, Lumbini Park, Birla Mandir and others.
