Rajamahendravaram

Visited- Countless times, latest in DEC 2017
A combination of greenery, water and bridges all around. Rajahmundry aka Rajamahendravaram proudly presents life that seems to revolve around Godavari, like any civilization around a river would.

There are 4 bridges over Godavari in Rajahmahendravaram, of which the old bridge(Havelock bridge) has been decommisioned.


The delta regions formed by the tributaries of Godavari are comprisingly called Konaseema and extremely green with fertile lands.


It is not fully developed as a touristy location, but probably should be. Information is limited and so are options.
Connected to major cities via road, rail and air. The recently expanded airport was primarily serving the rajahmundry-Hyderabad sector, with frequent cancellations in the Chennai or Bangalore sector. But it is seeing service additions in 2018 and hoping for continued improvements.
