Then, you will be driven towards Bhoodan Pochampally. En-route learn about the history of Pochampally, which has made to the list of UNESCO’s tentative list of World Heritage Sites under the "iconic saree weaving clusters of India". A cluster of around 100 villages, Pochampally has traditional looms, whose this Silk City is more of a cottage industry with more than 10,000 weaving families. Learn about the world-famous Pochampally ‘ikkat’, a weave style of tie-dye as per which geometric designs are transferred onto mainly silk and cotton threads before they’re woven together, creating saris and other dress materials. The raw materials used are purchased by the farmers locally, and the finished products are then sold through a village co-operative within India and exported worldwide. On arrival, watch the creative village weaving technique, tie-dying, and the ‘ikkat’ textiles making process. Also, visit a local institute that trains locals in entrepreneurial skills and explore an art gallery showcasing the intricate artistry of the ikkat style of dye.

Afterward, check out Pochampally’s famous 101 Darwaja House, named so because of its 101 doors and windows. Explore this old house, which is also an interesting heritage site, with a 150-year-old history. Each of the opening offers a pleasant view of the surroundings, which is the uniqueness of the house. The building has been converted into a school and is a popular attraction among tourists. After the tour concludes, you will be dropped back at the hotel.
