Srisailam, one of the nice pilgrim place

I have thought to give myself a break and to visit some holly place, enjoy the love of nature and to cheer up a little. Thought a lot and finally decided to visit Srisailam. I was just thinking it would be a simple trip. But, the place is just amazing and I can’t stop myself writing about its beauty and I would love to refer this place to pilgrims and nature lovers. If you are tired and stressed up, this is the place you need to visit to gear up your self.

Srisailam is located in the state Andra Pradesh, Lord Shiva’s temple is one of the main attraction there. You should try to visit the temple as early as possible as rush used to be there at temple. People starts standing in the que from morning 4.00AM. I have got a fortunate chance to get the darsan of Shiva Ling there. After finishing the puja and visiting the temple I have headed towards the Rope Way. Remember Rope Way. If you are not going there then your srisailam visit is half. 

There is a Rope Way through which you can go from one hill to another and enjoy the real beauty. You must visit the Akka Maha Devi Caves. It is simply awesome. You will enjoy the 16km Journey on Boat and just hills, green trees, open sky, dazzling sun, glassy pure and cold water of the River during the journey. The cave itself is great and very nice. You will get a chance to visit the mahadevi located inside the cave. 10persons are allowed at once to enter there. And one person is allowed to walk and get the darshan of the Akka Maha Devi’s image. No light will be there inside the cave, so we need to put candles there to see the way. We need to walk on our knee for about 75feet inside that cave.

You can see my album at orkut where I have added the awesome pics I have taken there. Visit My Album
