The vittal temple of Machilipatnam

The temple is very unique.as the lord is mostly worshiped by maharastrians, built during the time of Shivaji and is famous here as many maratis live here.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: nearby in the town you can shop for conch, seashells,etc.
but buy some imitation gold jewellery, as it is famous here and manufactured here

Activities & things to do: you can join in the bhajans in the temple,
or you can while away your time in the seaside.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: from vijayawada a 2 hours ride in train or bus will bring you here.
its very hot as its situated near the sea.
Food near the temple is a problem, but can find in the main town nearby.

Great Forgotten Port City

Very calm, serene and small town..quietly away from the buzz and urban vijaywada. Hardly 60+ kms from vijayawada..Very famous for hand made, hand printed, ethnic, eco friendly Kalamkari textiles, famous Chilakalapudi Keer Pandharpur temple, Manginapudi beach pristine, and calm

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Visit Chilikalapudi Keer Pandharpur temple, have a tour of Kalamkari textiles, watch the making of hand printed cotton fabrics, visit bandar to see fish industry and fishing folk

Activities & things to do: Visit Chilikalapudi Keer Pandharpur temple, have a tour of Kalamkari textiles, watch the making of hand printed cotton fabrics, visit bandar to see fish industry and fishing folk..just chill out and relax and take in the views of small town india..where the city goes quiet by 9 pm (it is a boon in today's urban madness)

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Reach vijayawada, take APSRTC buses from main bus stand point to point to Machilipatnam..takes approx 2.5 hrs...do not use private buses.there are buses every 30 mins approx..
