At a distance of 85 Kms from Vijayawada and 20 Kms from Machilipatnam, Hamsala Deevi is the place where a branch of Krishna River converges into the Bay of Bengal. It is also an important religious centre in the district and considered as a sacred place of pilgrimage.
Hamsala Devi is also famous for the Shrine of Venugopala Swami which was constructed by the Chola Kings. A festival celebrated in honor of this deity for eight days from Magha Suddha Navami to Bahula Padyami attracts thousands of pilgrims even from other states.
Regular RTC buses are operated to Hamsala Deevi from Vijayawada and Machilipatnam.
