A trip to Solapur

I had been to Solapur by train in the month of March 2016. Solapur is an important stop-over in the tourism circuit of Maharashtra, more so because of its historical and cultural leanings in terms of world history and culture. The must-visit attractions around Solapur include the Yevati lake, Siddeshwar temple and The Hipparga lake. Yevati Lake is one of the biggest lakes in Maharashtra and it supplies water to around 50 villages and this water is being used for drinking and irrigation purposes. The Siddeshwar temple is surrounded by a lake and it is widely believed that Lord Siddeswara attained his holy Samadhi here. One can spot a lot of flora and fauna in the Hipparga lake abutting the historical and holy town of Solapur.

Sholapur was good. It has improved a lot compared to my last trip.(5 years back) Cost also has gone up to considerable extent.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Not much sight seeing at sholapur and the weather in summer is quite hot. Shopping was almost like mini bombay.

Activities & things to do: Select a better season to visit Sholapur. probably September may be better.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Be careful with the money in Pandarpur. If you are slightly careless you will be swindled in the name of religion.
