Chandragiri Tourism & Travel Guide

This is a fort in the Tirupathi region of Andhra Pradesh and is almost 1000 years old. During the time of the Vijayanagara Empire, there were two cities which rose to prominence here. These were namely the Thulunadu and the Kolathunadu. This fort is built in the place which forms a border betwen these two cities. When the Vijayanagar Dynasty declined, the importance of these cities also declined and the region was taken over by a powerful ruker of the Nayaka Clan named Sivappa Nayaka. He was a patron of architecture and built a number of forts, palaces and temples. The Chandragiri Fort is one out of all. This fort is not only a historic tourist attraction merely but surrounded by dense forests and exciting trekking options to. The Swarnamukhi River also flows here and makes the charm of the scenery increase. The Srivari Mettu, Srinivasa Mangapuram, Agasthreeswara and others are main temples here. The Raja Mahal and the Rani Mahal are the most beautiful parts of the deserted fort of chandragiri. The Raja Mahal was later deparated and built as an archeological museum.

Weekend Getaways from Chandragiri 

Best time to visit - January,February,October,November,December
Named after Tribhuvan Eshwar or the 'lord of the three worlds' is the capital of Odisha, Bhubaneswar. It is set on the Mahanadi Delta but is not restricted to only coastal areas. Caves, hills, zoological parks, museums, art galleries, temples, amusement parks – you'll find all this and more at Bhubaneswar. The 180 ft tall, majestic Lingaraja Temple is the most popular in the locality. It is a sculptural feat featuring gods, goddesses, kings, queens, hunters and musicians. Lord Harihara, a union of Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu is the presiding deity. The Mukteshwar Temple is smaller in comparison to others, but is famed for its beautiful ceiling of an eight petalled lotus and a glorious archway. The other prominent temples are Brahmeswar and Rajarani. The captivating natural beauty of the Udayagiri and Khandagiri caves will compel you to lose yourself in historical wonder. However, be prepared to deal with numerous langoors jumping all over the place. The dense and tranquil forests of Nandankanan will welcome you on your way to its national park. Apart from the wildlife and the white tiger safaris, you can also spend some quiet time in the gardens and indulge in an exciting ride on the ropeway. Another wonderful site to visit is the Dhauligiri Shanti Stupa. Situated on Dhauli hills, it is a well-maintained edifice where you can visit for beautiful views and solitude. If you want to be enlightened about the tribes of Orissa make sure you visit the tribal villages, markets and the Museum of Tribal Arts & Artifacts. Among places to stay, the Mayfair Lagoon or Trident are great options, but there are also other hotels that are light on the pocket.
