Museums in BhadrachalamEdit This
To get the most out of your trip to Bhadrachalam, museums help you to understand the history and culture of the sights you will visit in this Andhra Pradesh town. The main attraction that draws visitors to Bhadrachalam is the 400 year old Hindu temple of Lord Rama, on the banks of the river Godavari. As you might expect from a town that is based around a Hindu temple, Bhadrachalam makes for a very peaceful vacation, giving you plenty of time to explore, relax, and absorb the culture around you. Because Bhadrachalam
is such a small town, you won't find your typical large museums with
multiple wings and many different displays here. What you will find are
small museums attached to the actual attractions themselves, highlighting the history and helping you to understand the significance of what you are seeing.
The Temple Museum
In addition to visiting the temple itself, the temple complex contains a small museum highlighting the history of the temple. The temple complex actually contains more than just the main temple of Lord Rama, it also contains smaller temples to other Hindu gods and goddesses. While the museum is a worthwhile visit, it pales in comparison to actually visiting the temples themselves.
ParnasalaAbout 35 KM from Bhadrachalam is Parnasala, another important place in the history and stories of the area. Somewhat weathered, the site still makes for an interesting visit, with sculptures and murals detailing the legendary encounter of Raven and Sita.
