Old and great religious place.

Jonnawada is situated at west of Nellore, is a very old and religious place and called as the one of the Sakthi Peethas among the few of its kind. Temple is of goddesses Sakthi or Amavaru, I think government have to increase some roadways and along to it some facilities to make it a safe and good tourist destination in terms of religious places. when you are planning to visit this destination, its better to carry your own food as food there wont be good at all.
