"Good place to spend an evening"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Nov 15, 2014
Its approximately 2 Km from Vijayawada Bus stand and Railway station. Good place to spend for 2hrs with scenic places to watch around. No entrance fee is required to visit this place and one can't expect a quality food here.

"It is really a nice place"

This is really a nice place. You should at least go and visit the place once; agriculture has well developed in the Krishna district because of this barrage.

Prakasam Barrage was founded before India's independence because it is called Prakasam Panthulu.
