Bhadrachalam, a temple city in the state of Andhra Pradesh is a renowned pilgrim centre in South India. A flamboyant place, where the majestic River Godavari found winding with its vast stretch of sand, is considered to be very holy as the town is believed to have been the stage for many events in the great epic Ramayana.

This glowing city with tremendous temples, invites thousands of devotees throughout the year. This tribal hamlet acquired its present name from Bhadra, who was a great devotee of Lord Ram. A rather sleepy locale, Bhadrachalam awakes to life at the glorious occasion of Sri Ramanavami celebrations when large folks gather here to witness the holy wedding of Lord Ram and Sita.

The majestic Godavari River, which straps the city as a glistening festoon adds the serene and tranquil ambiance of this historic town. This holy river houses most of the sacred shrines of the town in and around its banks. Apart from its sacredness this riverbanks are a perfect place for enjoying a pleasant walk while on your India tour packages.

A scenic place whose beauty fascinates the tourists and the locals alike, a trip to Bhadrachalam makes a wonderful experience for everyone. The most exciting part of the picnic would be the alluring voyage through the magnificent Godavari in a motorboat. The eight-hour journey through the crystalline waters, which replicates the surrounding greenery coupled with the natural warmth of the frisky wind, makes the boating in this holy river enchanting and refreshing. The itinerant sands of the river make the boating more lively. An overnight stay on the banks of the river in tents is really thrilling and is an added attraction of the boating.

A small hillock beside an imposing river, in the midst of luxuriant greenery, and gurgling streams this hidden treasure presents the pristine beauty of the nature as such.
