Overall #Tip
1. Dormitory and Retiring Room available on 1st floor, book via rr tourism site, not to rely on offline booking as very less chance of availablity of rooms or beds..
However check in should be done near UTS counter, there is seperate counter for the Retiring Room..
2. Dormitory is divided into room numbers, mine was room number 5 and it
has only 5 beds , shared bathroom and western toilet fitted with working Geyser, however condition of washroom is not so good not so bad its avg..
3. At station you will find various food options as well outside station plenty of restaurants and hotels and bars .. for famous kachoris and all take exit from pf1 side and walk on right side of main road there is famous restro name Janta ..
And for more take exit cross the road and follow the straight road then left u will reach a chauraha named as Jalori Gate where u can find more famous houses of snacks and food etc..
4. Transportation is easily available as city is not so big like metro city hence transportation is easy here
I used Rapido for all my travel as its cheap and fast.. however shared auto, city buses available, cabs and reserve auto also available..
5. There are plenty of places to visit as tourist however due to some work i didn't get enough time to even roam to single place so i focus on 2-3 food items instead of historical places etc..
However the city is not blue as of now, people's are changing shades and blue city is lost legend and new nick name is Sun City.. even at outside station the hoarding of I ❤️ Sun City ..
Overall my experience for 12 hours in Jodhpur is 4/5
I found kachori are better here than Jaipur but Jaipur is way big, develop, and big city, has more places to visit in sequence as well.. has better connectivity inside city by local transportation than Jodhpur..
But still if i have to choose 1 city from these both for spending few years of my life i will choose Jodhpur over Jaipur bcoz i don't like metro crowd anymore 😹..
PS- now going to Bikaner to see that city as well.. 🤪

This station is located in Kothagudem town. But called as 'Bhadrachalam Road' to help the pilgrims, visiting the temple at Bhadrachalam, to co-relate.
1. There is a bus stand right outside the railway station. All the buses from 'TSRTC bus stand Kothagudem', going towards the town of Bhadrachalam will stop there. But if you are lucky, you will get seat, if not better take an auto to the bus stand and you can get a seat. The frequency is quite good, as a lot of buses from many parts of AP, TS
go to Bhadrachalam via Kothagudem.
The distance between the station and the bus stand is just a Km or so.
Pic 3 - The timings are worn off, but it shows that a lot of buses are there.
2. The distance between Kothagudem and Bhadrachalam is around 40 Kms. The Express buses take a little over an hour due to bad road conditions and a little diversion into the villages. But other buses like SL, UD, AC buses take just an hour.
3. On the way, you will cross the mighty Godavari river and in the right you can also have a distant look at the temple which is located on the banks of the river on top of a hillock.
Pics 1 and 2.
4. Tell the conductor and get down before the bus stand at the temple stop. At the stop, there will be autos waiting. Share autos nowadays charge Rs. 15 per head. Near the stop itself there is a temple office, where you can book dormitories and rooms.
5. The temple has all the facilities like cloak room, rooms for staying etc... Mobiles too need to be kept in the storage facility as they are not allowed inside.
The climb to the main temple is not steep or arduous, just a hundred or less steps.
Prasadam is available near the back of the temple.
Annadhanam is also there they said, but you will have to enquire. If not, there are many hotels near the temple or many near the bus stand.
After the visit, you can return back to the bus stand by the same share auto basis (Rs. 15).
6. Parnashala is another place of interest. It is located some 35 Kms from the temple. There are buses available from the bus stand. Decent frequency from what I inquired. I myself have not gone but seen on my way to another place. As per legend, it was here that Ravana abducted Sita and also the place where Rama and Sita stayed for some time during their exile.
Parnashala and Bhadrachalam are at the south of Dandakaranya forest.

On the coast, south of Tuticorin, this impressive shore temple is located and it is one of the six
abodes of Lord Karthikeya and is very popular with pilgrims. The location of the temple is ideal
and draws a perennial stream of devotees. The temple overlooking the sea is an inspiring sight.
Soora samharam is the main festival of this temple, which is attended
by lakhs of people.
