Pavuluri polimera Anjaneya swamy temple

On 2 June 2015 Tue started from home at 6:30am and reached Chilakaluripet at 8am.  Bavagaru (Bsr) also reached chilakaluripet by 8am. Both of started to  Inkollu (hospital) via Paruchuru to see the daughter of B.Ravi.   The hospital is near the bus stand of Inkollu.  This is the first time I went to Inkollu. Nearby Inkollu we visited Pavuluru Polimera Anjaneya swamy temple. This is near Pavuluru which is on the way to Dronadula. By 10:30 am we have some spare time and fatherinlaw of Ravi has taken us to a Pavuluru Veeranjaneya swamy temple.  Paluru is 6kms from Inkollu and it is on the way to Dronadula.  Temple is in a peaceful environment among the fields on the outskirts of the village Pavuluru.  By 12:00pm we have returned back to  hospital then had lunch in a nearby hotel.  By 1:30pm we are free.  So, we planned to go to Singarakonda Anjaneyaswamy and narasimhaswamy temples near Addanki.  Singarakonda is 3kms from Addanki.

BalaTripuraSundari Devi and Tripuranthakeswara swamy temples, Tripuranthakam

On 14 June 2014, Sunday I had been to Poonuru to attend a function and after lunch at about 1:45pm I have started to visit Tripuranthakam near Vinukonda.

The temple of Sri Bala Tripurasundari Devi is located in a well.  We have to climb down to go into the temple area. Inside the temple again there are stairs that leads to the deity.  Archaka's told me in the rainy season the diety statue gets immersed in water. We can pray to the Godess from outside of the temple premises at such times.  


On the hill top Tripuranthakeswara Swamy temple is located. The road leading to the Erragondapalem is passing by the side of the hill.

The tunnel connecting to Srisailam
 is inside this temple like structure 
There is a tunnel that is connecting to Srisailam. One of the photos below shows the place where the tunnel is located.  But the tunnel  passage has not been seen as it is completely closed by vertical rock typle structures.
