Bhadrachalam Parnasala

Parnasala is a village in the Dummugudem mandal in the Bhadradri Kothagudem district of
Telangana, India.

The village is accessible by road and boats and is situated 32 km from the temple town of Bhadrachalam.

A little glitch in reaching the village is its remote location because of which makes it a little difficult to access. One can reach Parnasala only by road or boats as the means of transportation.

Parnasala – An epic comes alive
Parnasala, which became a much visited picnic spot in Bhadrachalam is said to be the place where the evil-minded king Ravan abducted Goddess Sita.

This place unfolds this part of the epic Ramayana by exhibiting the primary events with beautifully canvassed sculptures of Shri Ram, Sita, Laxman, and Ravan.

The 32 kms stretch to Parnasala is never ending, a bumpy ride on a single road through the country side. The first stop was at Lord Rama’s Rathi Simhasanam or the Rock Throne. The story goes that Lord Rama held court during his exile from this rock throne.

The story of Rama is spread across the length and breadth of India, as he travels through the country during his 14 year exile. The most important part of the Ramayana happens at Dandakaranya, in the forest of Panchavati, on the banks of the Godavari in Telangana State.

Panchavati is where Rama spent the last part of his exile and from where Ravana abducted Sita. The dense forest area is located on the banks of Godavari surrounded by the hills.

The little stream stands as a testimony to the belief that Sita, wife of Lord Shri Ram, took her bath in the stream, the place is called Sita Vaagu.

Every belief is justified one such proof is the imprints in “Radhagutta” in Parnasala. Another story accounting to the history of this historical village is that Maricha Rakshas was killed by Lord Shri Ram in the same place when he came in disguise as a golden deer to deceive Goddess Sita.
