BHADRACHALAM - THE HEAVENLY ABODE
Bhadrachalam the abode of Lord Rama, the incarnation of Mahavishnu, placed on the hill surrounded by the holy Godavari river. This place where Rama and his consort Sita and brother Laxman had spent their vanavasa period.
Also history dates back that Maharshi Bhadra performed penance for years at the banks of the river Godavari and got the grace of Mahavishnu who manifested himelf as Vykunta Rama with four hands with Shanku – Conch, Sudarshana Chakra – the weapon of Vishnu, Dhanurbhana – bow and arrow.
Hence, this shrine has been transformed into Bhadrachalam.
