"Hot but good!"

  • 7/7
  • Posted Oct 9, 2013
Rajhamandry is a good place to visit in winter season. The Godavari river makes you feel like you are somewhere in heaven. The holy bath in the river makes you so fresh.
The people here are very helpful, respectful. One can learn many things from the people over here.

"Land of Godavari!"

  • 3.5/7
  • Posted Sep 29, 2013
The town is on the banks of River Godavari. I sat in the steps of the river and enjoyed the sunset. Far away the train is going like a snake with sound of the train fading away. Boys are diving in the river keeping one boy's back as diving board.
Plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the sunset if you don't want to get wet. For Rs.50, the boat took me for a 20 minutes ride. Very enjoyable ride especially under the rail cum road bridge.
Rajamundry special sweet, "pootharekhalu" or something they call, is very nice like our bakery puff.

"A city on the banks of River Godavari"

  • Posted Mar 27, 2013
Rajahmundry is an upcoming city full of life. It can be called as a pilgrim's paradise with many historical temples as well as newly built modern temples.
There is abundant greenery around the city with lush green paddy fields, banana trees, fruit gardens, etc. River Godavari when in full spate is a great sight.People are friendly and well-behaved.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: You get tasty veg & non-veg food at reasonable price. Udipi Akshaya is the best hotel for vegetarians.
The recently built ISKON Temple, River Bay Complex, Gayathri Temple, etc must be visited. A trip to Papikondalu by river-criuse is enjoyable.
Varieties of fruits are available in plenty. For the best mangoes , one must go there in summer. Very big cloth shops are worth shopping for Sarees.

Activities & things to do: Visits to temples, long drive around the city to enjoy the nature and a river cruise.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Rajahmundry is well connected to Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad,Delhi and Kolkata with direct express trains. One can travel to the city by direct flight from Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam. Cabs can be used for local travel. Avoid the period July- September as that is the rainy season.

"Due to the Godavari River the place is worth visiting."

  • Posted Mar 5, 2013
With its wide span of beautiful river side it gives an ambiance of life time. You would love to go Rajahmundry just for this resort. Good activities - such as water sports swimming pool and swings etc for children are there in the hotel River Bay.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Restaurants are there which boast of having continental dishes. Breakfast and evening buffet are good. River side is full with beautiful & big temples. Iscon temple is adjacent to River Bay.

Activities & things to do: With its wide span of beautiful river side it gives an ambiance of life time. You would love to go Rajahmundry just for this resort. Good activities - such as water sports swimming pool and swings etc for children are there in the hotel River Bay.

"Pilgrimage Angle"

  • Posted Feb 11, 2013
For us it was only a transit point, hence, we are unaware of the place.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: We had food at couple of restaurants in Rajahmundry. One of them was 'Food Ex' just opposite to Sai Priya Residencey. They have served piping hot food, tasty, ultra quick service including billing, and rates on par with a general A/c restaurant. Exactly opposite railway station we had dinner, it was very typical south Indian (Andhra) hotel, and we were lucky to have an excellent south Indian andhra meals.

Activities & things to do: If you are on pilgrimage tour, one can visit Annavaram (approx 80 kms), PIthapuram (approx 35 kms), Biccavolu - for Vinayak temple, temple is not that big or typicality of south India, but the Ganesh (Vinayak) idol is quite big, beautifully decorated, in granite rock. Specialty of this idol is that you have to tell in the ears of the Vinayaka God and it is said that he fulfills the wishes of the requester.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Plenty of buses to and fro Vijayawada, Kakinada, Annavaram, pithapuram etc. Railway connects on south with Vijayawada and on North with Vizag.

Rajahmundry Info

  • State: Andhra Pradesh
  • Famous for/as: Heritage
Rajahmundry, originally known as Rajamahendri, is better known as the ‘cultural capital and born city’ of Andhra Pradesh. This is probably due to the fact that the Telugu language originated here. Poet Nannayya gave Telugu a script here which made it a language. It is the birth place of poet Nannayya, who is also called the first poet of Telugu.

The city of Rajahmundry is located 400 km from the capital of Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad. Earlier a part of Chennai (erstwhile Madras), the city has River Godavari to its west.

It is believed that the Chalukyas were the earliest rulers of the place. Rajaraja Narendra was a Chalukya king who ruled the city during the 11th century. However, fresh archaeological data suggests that the history of the place is older than that.

Looking at the recent past, the city has had its share of revolutions. It was one of the biggest South Indian cities in the 19th century and was the epicenter of many uprisings during the British Era.

Nyapathi Subbarao and Kandukuri Veerasalingam were the two most important freedom fighters from Rajahmundry who played a crucial role in India’s freedom struggle. Mr. Subba Rao was also one of the founders of ‘The Hindu’, an English Daily.

Today, Rajahmundry is primarily a pilgrimage centre, due to the presence of a large number of temples in the city. It also holds the Pushkaram, once every 12 years. Pushkaram is a holy congregation which sees millions of devotees taking a dip in the Godavari.

The city also shares a special bond with Tollywood. Pattiseema, a scenic spot here, sees the shooting of many a Telugu movies every year. Apart from the temples and the Tollywood tryst, the place is also known for Pulasa Fish. It’s a rare species which is found only during the monsoon season.

Rajahmundry is well connected to other neighboring cities of Andhra Pradesh by road and rail. Located on an elevation of 45 feet, it has a typical hot and humid tropical climate. The temperature does not vary much throughout the year, but the months of December and January are relatively cooler than the rest.
