#7 of 8 Places to Visit in Bhadrachalam
At a distance of 35 Kms from Bhadrachalam, Parnasala is a popular tourist spot with historical reference to Ramayana. This is said to be the place where Ravan abducted Sita.
A small hut with gaudily painted sculptures of Sri Ram, Sita, Laxman and Ravan depicting key events from Ramayan is what Parnasala is about. This is an extraordinarily unkempt and dilapidated place. Monkeys, beggars and insistent vendors hogging tourists, weathered sculptures, a botched attempt to replicate the sculptures with fiber glass, lack of maintenance make it a sad and frustrating experience. However, passing through tiny tribal hamlets and expansive fields of paddy by a spooky tree lined road plus the serene Godavari River are the saving grace.
There are frequent buses available to Parnasala from Bhadrachalam once in every 2 hours.
Timings: 5 AM to 1 PM & 3 PM to 8:30 PM
