BHADRACHALAM

Ascending the stairs, the devotees enter through the main entrance adorned with a tall tower. The courtyard in the inner Prakara is quite spacious, and the halls too are huge enough to accommodate thousands of pilgrims congregating for several purposes. The images of the Principal Deity Sri Rama is about three feet in height. He reveals himself in Padmasana posture with four hands, two holding bow and arrow, and the other two disc and conch. Mother Sita is sitting on his left lap, while Lakshman sitting adjacent. All these three are extremely graceful and lift the souls of the theist at the first sight, rather in a single flash itself. The Vimanasikhara, made of single granite stone weighs 30 tons, and according to local version, it is beautified with Sudarsan Chakra brought from the river, Godavari by Ramadas. Images of several adorable deities like Vishnu, Garuda, Simha, Somaskanda, Dhakshina murthi are adorning the grand Vimana, and its visual appeal detains the viewers long. Another strange feature that greets the visitors is the figures of Dwarapalaks on horse back. An oddity. The Kalyana mantapam, besides being extensive in size is a specimen of exquisite craftsmanship. And there is special room specially built for preserving the Ramkoti books written by devotees. Behind the girbha griha there is another shrine for Bhadra and it is visit worthy too.
