"Most memorable experience" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
I have visited the place. It was very very cool and calm place. The overview from Telugu Talli statue was quite impressing. It was one of the most memorable experiences I have enjoyed in this place. The total overview wall is very good and super at the time of sunrise and sunset. Video cameras are allowed there.

"Best place for photographers"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It is the best place for photographers to capture best photos. We can enjoy in water by swimming, there is also bhavani island nearer to Barrage. This barrage has large history, it divides two districts.

A very good facility to travel from Vijayawada to Mangalagiri in Guntur / other areas. Facilitates smooth flow of traffic and faster travel. A very good view of the River Krishna and the surroundings and well kept.

"The view is beautiful"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
At the time British government this barrage was built, this barrage is border to Guntur district and Krishna district, it is built in river of Krishna, this barrage for the entire year is with full of water. Good for fishing, boating and island surrounding with many mountains in between river it looks very nice. This is road bridge and it is very old bridge. Storage water more useful for cultivation and industries usage.

"The beautiful barrage"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Oct 15, 2015
On Krishna River, this barrage looks beautiful and worth a sight. It is just on way for you to pass thru the city to various destinations, so you don't have to visit it separately.

"Best relaxing place in Vijayawada"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Sep 8, 2015
Almost my 10 short films shoots were done here. Every family must visit this place. Evening 5 to 6 is the best time to visit this place. It's very old but you can't feel that it's too cool.

"Good place to spend an evening"

  • 6.0/7
  • 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.

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.
