It all started on a bright and sunny day from our home. We started on our lovely car at about 8 am. We took the national highway which connects hyderabad through vijayawada. We had breakfast near chityal on a nearby dhaba at around 10am. The food I can say is average. Then again we started our journey and took an exit to khamman road near suryapet. The drive was awesome as it was drizzling and raining all the way. And then again we had a break for lunch in kothagudem. The restaurant guys claimed that a hyderabad bawarchi but not at all matching. Again I can say the food is average. And after having lunch we had around 40kms of journey to Bhadrachalam.
The distance is all about 320 km. By the time we reach Bhadrachalam it was 3:30 PM in the evening. We stayed at an average priced hotel called Sita Nilayam. The management as we all the rooms are really bad. I suggest anyone not to stay in this hotel. Nothing is working here. We had a quick 1hr gap to refresh and then went to the temple. As always the almighty is glowing and awesome to see. After that we went for shopping and had worst dinner again. We went back to the hotel and we’re fighting with the mosquitoes lol.
After all the struggle, we woke up early in the morning and went to Suprabhatam darshanam. It was good. The darshanam took about 20mins since we need to sit in the main temple for the suprabhatam to commence. We went back to the hotel and had a short nap again. After that we went to parnasala which is about 35km from Bhadrachalam. This place is about Sita and Rama stayed during the time of Vanavasam. They were playing games and used to dry their clothes here. We can see those markings on the rocks here. These markings are of different colors and the length is about 5mts. There is also a temple near to this place on the bank of river Godavari. And then we went back to Bhadrachalam and had a Antaralaya Archana darshanam. It costs about 500rs for the couple. We can see main diety from around 1 feet or so. After that our journey to hyderabad started which is around 320kms.
A sweet and small trip but hard to drive.
