Simple and peaceful place, be careful when buying stuffs

There is no luxury way of more of transport but more of transport was frequent. Dont buy ippapuvvu which is sold there its alcoholic and down to temple we can go for boating which gives forestry view and beautiful place to go. In normal shop cool drinks and other chips are double the rate some time out dated so best suggested is not to buy. Area and hilly place which is worth watching and visiting.

Religious place where Godavari River flows nearby

We visited this place about 35 kms from Bhadrachalam. It is religious place to see where Ram and Sita stayed. One can visit the place and also have a boat ride near the temple. Godavari River flows near the temple.
