Perantalapalli


Perantalapalli, also known as the cloud-laced hill range, is located on the way to Papi Kondalu from Kunavaram. The confluence of the Sabari River and the Godavari River can be seen from this place.

Perantalapalli is sure to give you the ultimate experience with its picturesque landscapes. Its beauty can be gauged by the fact that it is referred to as cloud-laced hill range. It is located between Kunavaram and Rajahmundry. This tribal village located on hilltop offers view of the confluence of Sabari and Godavari Rivers. View of Papi Hills and Munivaatam Falls are breathtaking.
This is a remote tribal village in Velerupadu mandal of Khammam District. This village is located on Kunavaram-Rajahmundry water way. A "Sri Krishna Munivaatam" was constructed at this village by Balananda Swamiji in the year 1927.Now this Munivatam is being maintained by a tribal sect Konda Reddys and daily pooja are being performed by them. Beautiful sceneries of Papi Hills and waterfalls at Munivaatam and the peaceful atmosphere at this tribal village will definitely give pleasant look and peace to the visitors. The idol of Shiva under serpent shade was installed in Munivaatam.

The history depicts that on one day Balananda Swamy (during 1926) had reached Perantalapalli village while traveling from Rajahmundry to Bhadrachalam on river Godavari in a motor launch and stayed that night .He was enraptured with the pleasant atmosphere and the sceneries at and around the place where he stayed on moon lit night and he came out of the launch to the sand bed on the bank. Then a lady appeared to him and asked him to follow her and disappeared after reaching a place on the river bank covered with shrubs and stream flows. He spent that night there and astonished after seeing Shiva idol under serpent shade in the early morning and decided to construct a mantapam there. That mantapam is named as Sri Krishna Munivaatam. No priests would perform pooja there. The devotees themselves pray the God and perform pooja after having holy dip in river Godavari. Using of non-vegetarian and hunting of animals are strictly prohibited there. All the devotees must maintain silence while spending time there and also performing pooja in this munivaatam. Balananda Swamy after seeing the backwardness of the tribal sect Konda Koyas (Hill Reddys) decided to reform them and took up a project in the line by bringing them to cultured society. Later in 1969, one David Adam, a youngster and a resident of England became a disciple of swamiji and spent in this munivaatam till recently. Now this munivatam is being maintained by the tribals themselves.
