Godavari Bridge

Reviewed By Karthik R - Chennai (Madras), India

This river bridge is rail-cum-road bridge - It is Asia's third longest road-cum-rail bridge crossing a water body after the longest one in Patna and second one in Osaka. The bridge is 4.1 kilometers long - 2.8 kms rail bridge and 4.1 kms for the road bridge. Boating is available here by the ghat from government operators. We decided to go for boating in the morning. At night, the bridge is lighted with colorful lights, a nice view to see.
Godavari river boating - there are 2 types. One is speed boat - Rs.354/- and other Rs.40 per person for a bigger boat. The speed boat ride is for 8-10 minutes and the bigger one for 15 minutes. We opted for speed boat - 4 people can go for Rs.354. We got beautiful view of the Truss and Arch Bridges across Godavari. Definitely, boating is a must-to-do in Rajahmundry.

Sri Mallikarjuna Swamy Temple

The shrine of Lord Mallikarjuna picturesquely situated on a flat top of Nallamalai Hills, Srisailam is reputed to be one of the most ancient kshetras in India. It is on the right side of the River Krishna in Kurnool District of Andhra Pradesh. This celebrated mountain is also named as Siridhan, Srigiri, Sirigiri, Sriparvatha and Srinagam. It has been a popular centre of Saivite pilgrimage for centuries. The prominence of this Divya Kshetram is highlighted by the fact that while performing our daily household rituals we specify place of location of our existence with reference to Srisailam

This is one of the most famous Jyortilinga of Lord Shiva. You will find a huge crowd on all days here. So be prepared for long queues over here. You at least need 4-6 hours to take the darshan of Mallika Arjuna Jyotirlinga. The Temple is very beautiful and very big. This is must to visit place near Hyderabad.

Prasanthi Nilayam

Reviewed By Avighna2015 - Gurugram (Gurgaon), India

Very splendid place and good for mind relaxation. Good for one day trip. Food is very good and cheap. One thing management need to work upon is the courtesy of the people who are providing support. They are very rude and their responses are not courteous at all. People ask for information since they are not aware of the practices, timings, route etc., but the people who are providing community support do not have patience at all. They need to be coached on this. Apart from this all are very good.

Reviewed By jayakumar2015 - Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), India

I with family have darshan at Srikalahasti Temple on 12th march 2018. Srikalahasti Temple located 31 KM away from Tirupati can be reached from Chennai within two and half hours by road and the distance is 146 KM.Performing Rahu Kala Dosha parihara pooja is the importance which can be performed by ourselves under the guidance of temple priests. The ticket rates for this pooja vary only for the Seating facilities provided as the pooja remains the same for all. Temple priest announces during pooja that their is no need of leaving the clothes weared during the pooja in the temple premises which was a belief practiced. No good restaurants around the temple premises but standard accommodations available like devasthanams good guest houses and star hotels.Temple inside is of great religious and architectural importance.

Gandikota is India's Grand Canyon and the fort allows you the access to a grand view of it. ALthough there isn't much inside the premises except an abandoned temple with grand architecture and a small mosque, still the view that it provides of the canyon makes it worth visiting.

Belum Caves

Reviewed By A TripAdvisor Member

I went to Belum Caves. A depth in advance of three thousand meters, Belum Caves goes as deep as 46 meters at one point inside the cave, which is known as Pataalaganga. A mysterious underground stream flows all year at this point, gliding over the rocks and hiding beneath the surface again. It is great place to go.

Lepakshi

Lepakshi, in the neighboring state of Andhra Pradesh, is easily accessible from Bangalore. The beautiful Veerabhadraswamy Temple and India’s largest monolithic granite Nandi (a bearlike creature) make for a great day-trip option.

Reviewed By drvineet13 - Mumbai, India

I had seen some images of Lepakshi circulating on facebook talking about a hanging pillar and decided to check it out. It was not too far from Bangalore so we planned a day trip and trust me if you're even remotely interested in history and architecture you would love it. It is a grand temple carved out of a mountain of rock and is almost surreal in the way it has multiple carved pillars scattered all over the place. The parikrama is beautiful and gives an awesome view of the temple from different angles but the highlight of the place is the massive NAGALINGAM! There are many other things as well such as a giant carved Ganesha, a footprint of Lord Hanuman and of course the pillar but the massive Nandi at some distance to the temple is worth admiring as well.
