Water is indispensable for our daily sustenance. It is essential for our drinking and washing. Without water there is no cultivation. There are many places in our State and Country where water is a scarce commodity. But we are very lucky. We have abundance of water everywhere – the vast sea on one side and the tributaries of the Godavari on three sides; paddy fields and coconut trees provide an ocular feast for us. Country Resorts are ready to offer their services to enable you to enjoy the ineffable beauties of the River Godavari.


Konaseema is a natural island. It is a land of coconuts and plantains. Its insular situation is both its boon and bane. For a very long time people here were averse to mobility, because they couldn’t afford it. But that is a story of the past.

Agriculture, horticulture and pisciculture are the triple cultures one finds in abundance here. Konaseema is famous throughout India for its Vedic scholars and experts well versed in performing Yajnas and homams. In any language correct pronounciation is essential, much more so in Sanskrit. Scholars say that a mispronounciation of certain words may spell doom. Vedic scholars of Konaseema are admired throughout the country for their impeccable intonation. You hear to a rendering of vedichymns (Panasa) in a chorus by a group of Pundits. You may not know their meaning but you are enthralled. Such is the magical effect of their musical rendering.

Lord Vighneswara was the amanuensis of sage Veda Vysya when the latter dictated the Mahabharatha. It is common knowledge that in a Hindu household any auspicious function, be it cradle ceremony, betrothal, sacred thread ceremony, marriage or house warming ceremony, the function will be commenced only with singing the glory of Lord Ganesa. He is believed to be remover of all obstacles.

Lord Vinayaka’s temple at Ainavilli near Mukteswaram is a fomous temple. Now-a-days it is attracting pilgrims from far and wide. At Mukteswaram, there is the temple of Lord Sive. Mukti means salvation. It is popular belief here that if you worship Lord Siva in this temple, he will bless you with instant salvation. In Razole Taluk, there is the famous Balaji Temple. RyaliJaganMohini Swami Temple is well worth a visit. One should visit VadapalliVenkateswara Swami Temple. The Mosque in Nagaram in RazoleTaluq is famous. Canals flowing glitteringly in the sun, paddy fields on either side of the canal and chirping of lovely birds and heaven kissing coconut trees – this is a familiar sight in Konaseema.

The mighty Godavari at Razole affords a panoramic view and creates an optical illusion of the sky and river meeting far away. Watching the Godavari sitting under the big trees on the river bund near the temple at the ferry point is an indescribable experience.


imageRamachandrapuram is Konaseema District is called Kota Ramachandrapuram because of the For (Kota). Empires and Kingdoms and Zamindaries have all become things of the past, but the forts remain as relics of past glory. Ramachandrapuram fort is one such. This fort was built in 1865. There is a beautiful garden in the compound.
As you enter the main fort, the stuffed tigers frighten you. These tiger skins are of the many tigers killed by the old Raja in his hunting expeditions. This fort is so beautiful that throughout the year you can witness shooting of films. The late Raja and Sri Raja Kakarlapudi Gopala Narasa Raju and his son Late S.R.K. Ramachandra Raju served as Municipal Chairmen and legislators. His sons S.R.K. Gopal Babu and S.R.K. Krishna Babu are at present residing in the for. Gopala Babu and his wife Smt. Vijaya Devi served the town as Municipal Chair persons.
