Located in the East Godavari District, in the state of Andhra Pradesh, Konaseema is a delta, which is surrounded by water on all sides. With the Bay of Bengal on one side and River Godavari on the other, the destination is known for its coconut production.

Famed for its Vedic scholars and scenic beauty, this delta has derived its name from the Telugu word, Kona, which means ‘corner’ that resembles its shape. The destination on the northern side is surrounded by Gautami Godavari, while on the southern side the town is bounded by Vasista Godavari. Believed to be one of the most fertile lands of the entire Coromandel Coast, Konaseema is abundant in mango groves, coconut trees and cashew.

The culture of Konaseema is a typical rural culture followed in Andhra Pradesh. The dialect of Telugu language spoken in this region is distinct from the other parts of the state. In addition, festivals celebrated in the region attract tourists from all around the world.

Rathotsavam, dedicated to Lord Vishnu and Prabhala Theertham, dedicated to Lord Shiva are the most famous festivals celebrated throughout the region. Antarvedi teertham and Yanam teertham are among the most famous festivals celebrated in the region.

Sankranthi, a three day festival, commences on the third day of Prabharatheredham and is one of the most important festivals of the region. Apart from festivals, the destination is also known for its cultivation of turmeric along with kanda, which is a kind of yam.

"A Connoisseur's delight- Konaseema"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 15, 2017
The South Eastern part of East/West Godavari districts have a separate identity, be it scenic beauty, the old temples of Chola Kings vintage, 900/1000 AD, the rich cultural heritage, cuisine, traditions make this place unique in relation to the main stream Andhra Pradesh.
Dindi resorts is uniquely placed as a hub to wheel around and visit all these areas, the four aramas, Lord Shiva's temples, of Chola vintage, though the Lord is consecrated by the Devatas themselves before time immemorial.
Lord Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy's temple at Antarvedi, near the confluence of River Godavari with the Sea, the Bay of Bengal, is another lovely temple, with the same vintage.
Ryali, Lord KeshavaSwamy- Jaganmohani temple has an excellent carving of the Lord KeshavaSwamy- in front, and the rear being that of Jaganmohani. Ainaville has Lord Vinayaka as the main Deity.
There are many temples, like Mavullamma, at Bhimavaram, which can be visited.
The biggest problem in konaseema, is the low width, snaking roads, which make travelling tedious ., thereby causing serious lapses in time management, if you are on a short holiday.
Many places, we don't have places for good cuisine, though the area is famous for its cuisine. This area needs serious attention.
Another note worthy matter, is most temples close the morning darshanam and abhishekam, by 12. 00 noon, hence visiting several of them in a day becomes difficult, as they open again after 4. 00pm in the evening, as per custom.
This is a matter for the AP Government, which keeps on boasting of its achievements, that all these ancient Lord Shiva' s temples, like one in Samarlakota, and Draksharamam, need very urgent, priority, archeological, structural, facelift, otherwise, iam afraid, what have stood the test of time for a good 1100 years till now, will definitely be in ruins before the next decade.

"Beautiful place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 18, 2016
One of the beautiful place to visit in Andhra Pradesh. The best part was stay at Dindi resort. Get up early in the morning and see the beautiful, calm and silent river Godavari flowing through. The entire Konaseema is filled with coconut plantations which makes it the beautiful place on earth. The roads are narrow and both side you can only enjoy coconut plantation and prawns farming. Clean environment, well maintained village, absolutely free from pollution. If you want to enjoy God's beautifully painted landscape, at very affordable cost in only 3 days time from out of this busy schedule then a must visit place. The best short trip gift that you can give anytime to your family and will be your unforgettable memory to cherish forever.
