Beautiful tourist destination

The recent development which happened at this place made this place an awesome destination. The lighting and decorations make it a pleasant place to watch and spend your evenings.

The beauty of the city can be viewed by walking through this bridge. I went along with the friends. Water lovers can enjoy the view of great krishna river.

Prakasam Barrage was founded before India's independence.Good atmosphere and sightseeing. View of Krishna River is also good.You should at least go and visit the place once. This barrage looks beautiful and worth a sight. It is just on way for you to pass thru the city to various destinations, so you don't have to visit it separately....

As every barrage site would be, it is standard; nothing special about it! Just a long barrage with a small garden by the side with the ghat filled with 'Kriya-karm' [Dead people Ceremony] activities!

It is the one of best place to relax during evening time in the city of vijayawada.. as we don't have sea 🌊 with in the city as in vizag, it should be developed by government. There is a lot of place to attract tourism.. i request the government to develop it as a night hub.
