Dwaraka Tirumala also called Small Tirupati is an ancient holy place and a popular pilgrim center in Andhra Pradesh of South India.
I have visited this place with my grandmother when I was a kid, to visit this place we used to cross the Godavari by steamer boat. It’s nearly 30 to 40 minutes took to reach another side of the river from one side. It’s really great experience in that age.
I still remember my grandmother was afraid of water and as a kid I like to stand inside the boat to watch the flow of water, she got angry with me and make me sat inside the boat, from there we walked nearly 3 km in the small forest called Lanka to get bus stop to travel by bus to reach Dwaraka Tirumala temple.
The Journey inside the forest, I could see very big trees and colourful birds. Maybe I have fallen love with the beauty of nature with this trip.
