    Me and my sis with our dhs went to bhadrachalam to have darshan at the sreerama temple. From hyderabad we took the APTDC bus at night and reached Bhadrachalam in the early hours next day. We stayed in the APTDC guest house, a very beautiful place to stay with full of greenery. The room was also quite good with ac and tv and very clean and tidy. We took only one room since we planned to return that night itself. All the bookings we did there in hyderabad only so the room was ready when we came. We had bath and were ready to take breakfast there itself. The morning cofee and breakfast was complimentry for one couple as we booked onlu one room. They served delicious pongal, idlies, sambar and chutney and very tasty cofee.

    The temple is walkable distance from the guest house and it was very easy for anybody to locate the temple for we have to just follow the yellow and black striped median on the road which will lead you to the temple. As it was a working day there was not a huge crowd, even then it took an hour for us to have the darshan. As like other temples here also if you pay some money and get the tickets you can enter the inner most room to have darshan more clear. We came out of the Garbagraha and went around the temple for prathakshina. That time my sis had a call from erode and it was one of her collegue. When she said that she is in Bhadrachalam and in the temple, the friend asked whether she had the darshan of golden SHANKU AND CHAKRA on the gopuram. It is very important it seems.

    Again we started standing in the line to have the darshan because the gopuram was on the other side. we went inside through the ordinary line ( without paying money ) and had darshan and came out climbing down the few steps. there if you stand, turn left and look up at the gopuram you can see the huge golden shanku and chakra. That was the only point where you can have the darshan thats why I am specifying the spot. Many people who came there dont know this and we told to whoever were standing near us. We felt so happy for the phone came in right time.
    we came to the guest house and had a good lunch there and both the bils felt sleepy and tired. Me and my sis came out of the room and were roaming around the garden enjoying the birds sound and the breeze which were rare in the city.

    Evening three o clock we booked a taxi to visit the parnasala, where they are saying Rama and sita were staying there during vanavasa. There are evidences for their stay there and the jadayu moksha. The trip was nice and we enjoyed the glimpse of river gothavari. We were back to the room by 6.30 pm and decided to have the evening darshan in the temple. After a light dinner we boarded the APTDC bus from the guest house itself and relaxed. After the hectic day, we all had a good sleep in the AC coach and before we realise, the bus conductor announced our arrival to hyderabad.

    Nice travelogue mam. Good that you have explained the trip in a detail way. It will benefit people who wish to visit the temple. How far is it from chennai? IS there any buses like this from chennai too?

    dear soldier

    My mil used to say, (when we were busy with our office routines, she was the person who did pooa and all), that if the elders in a family is praying or doing pooja it is for all in the family. like, if I or anybody doing pilgrimage or some good thing, ofcourse the punyam will be for all in the indus family dear. I am happy to pass on the blessings to you . thanks for the fb da.
