Yesterday we all planned a road trip to Ramo Ji City which is situated at outskirts of Hyderabad, some 170 km from Begumpet. We were six friends and started at 8:30am .The best thing about Hyderabad road trips is clear blue skies with no traffic very much unlike Delhi
We had breakfast at Udipi .I was never fond of South Indian food before and thanks to this restaurant I LOOOVE South Indian food now.Food here is not expensive and of top quality, with this the tea which they serve is also amazing.Whenever we go there we always end up having two cups at least.
Reaching Ramo Ji City was easy only thing which we found disturbing was that there were no clear sign boards to Ramoji.Route from Airport road is pretty straight if only you know it . I can give you one tip which is follow your nose
We took Ramo ji star experience package which cost us about Rs1200 each and included meals, AC bus, guide and pretty much everything.
Ramo ji is huge (around 2000 acres – largest in world and also in Guiness records) and if one wants to cover the whole place then better reach the place by 10-11am.Beauty of the place is that hardly anything is real
Shooting of many films takes place every day and they have almost everything which one director needs to shoot here.All things are made from Plaster of paris and look too real to be believed.
Below is the artificial waterfall which looks pretty and ideal for most shooting
There were this Kripalu caves which look more or less like Ajanta caves
All these structures have been buit for shooting and there are around 500 set location out there.
This house is just a wall and is made from plaster of paris .Behind this wall of this house is empty space which was unbelievable.There were around 10-20 different types of houses there which are used for shooting.
This one is real albeit I initially thought it isn’t
Large pool, artificial waterfalls, intricately carved caves, an airport terminal, hospital set, railway station, churches, mosques and temples, shopping plazas, palace interiors, chateaus, rural complexes, urban dwellings, a winding highway, and model US and European sets etc etc …One can find almost whole world here.
Mein bhi Mahduti dixit banna chahti hun
Aren’t these dolls cute – I wished to take all of them home
This too is not real but doesn’t look like .Whole place is very clean with lush green garden .There were some culutural programmes as well and artist there were immensely talented.
Cutest tea pot I have ever seen
There were many other things which which North Indians don’t get to see usually.It is a fantastic place and if you visit Hyderabad don’t forget to take out one day for this place.
Here is a small video for you
