20120329181914.jpgIn my recent visit to vizag i visited Simhachalam station/SCM. I am attaching station entrance pic.
From here we can reach famous vishnu temple Simhachalam. Many piligrams from orissa visits this temple. As this station is in city many people use this station. Regards Simhachalam temple....
It is dedicated to the incarnation (Avatar) of Vishnu known as Narasimha (the man-lion). The temple is a mix of Orissan (main/central shrine) and Dravidian (entrance) styles of architecture.

sir ,good thought to visit ,annavaram and simhachalam with your mum
but this is not appropriate time due to severe heat.you select november or jan feb,,first simhachalam and then morning 11 dimhachalam devestanam bus runs for annavaram ,and you can return night or at annavaram you can catch train.
every day the pandits grinde sandal paste and apply to idol ,on poornima days
one more main this is giri pradikshna of 32 kms length by lakhs of people covering almost vizag which atleast worth watching,many social workers distributing prasadams,buttermilk,water ,first aid etc to the large crowd.
this chandanostam day lot of rush but luckly they kept rupee 1000

Well, if you have not met VENKAT, I can tell you that he is one hell of a guy, brimming with a lot of passion, sincerity and dedication. And unlike most of us who know SOMETHING ABOUT EVERYTHING but EVERYTHING ABOUT NOTHING, he has an in-depth knowledge of whatever he discusses. An engaging conversationalist from whom there is much to be learnt. That is my impression of Venkat, Bibek. He reminds me greatly of myself at his age.
