NIT Warangal - getting there

The deemed university.. 'The' National Institute of Technology, Warangal is about 10 minutes distance from Kazipet station.
It takes about 30 minutes from Warangal station.

Warangal was the capital city of the Kakatiya Dynasty. There are tens and hundreds of beautiful temples crammed all about the city to soothe your mums strained nerves :). The road to the institute from Kazipet is lined with several small shops,bakeries (only the 'cold' pinapple pastries are any good), passing over a flyover, at the end of which, a right turn will take you to a very good St.Anne's hospital run by nuns. Further ahead right turns will take you to a dargah , another right turn leading to a church. Then, a left turn will take you to Waddepali lake and temple.
Warning to all prospective students - The Rickshaw drivers are atrocious cheaters - They should be paid only Rs. 30-35 for the journey, with luggage, till inside the NIT campus. You can ask you to drop you till the NIT auditorium or Girls/Boys Hostel. The drivers are all mostly aware of the layout of the campus.

Rickshaw charges are otherwise- Rs. 4-6 per person...the rickshaw stops along the way picking passengers travelling to the same destination. You also have the option of taking a Rick 'direct' , ie. only you will travel in the rick. You have to say for ex. " Hanumakonda chowrasta- DIRECT" . The Rick driver will charge you around Rs 20 for the journey.
Hanumakonda chowrasta, anyway, is the chief shopping centre NIT studdents go to. It is Rs. 6/person away from the NIT campus. Trinethra super market and 'Reliance Fresh' is Rs.4/person away. 'Suprabha' 5-star hotel and 'Mitra' hotelis Rs.5-6 away.
