Atop a good sized hill, one must climb to receive the priests' blessings. Lovely view of the canal and shipping zone, cargo, naval ships and huge coal shipping production. Temple was said to be 1000 years old, a nice place to stop.

Visit to the temple is a must and go in morning and evening since temple is closed during after noon. spend time at temple since the view from the temple of the port is breath taking. we were lucky to see a submarine being pulled in, brilliant!

Impressive enough from the outside. To go inside requires storage of cameras and mobile phones (which aren't allowed inside) and plenty of patience for the long queue to get inside. Probably best to go during the week to avoid the crowds.

It is just near by Ross Hill Church. You gotta go through a very dirty road to reach here. It is just near by the Vizag Harbor. With a lot of heavy mining trucks and trains moving around, the way is quiet dirty. But you will forget all that after reaching there. A calm place. With a view of huge... More

This shrine is the original NARSIMHA temple and is very famous after tirupati balaji. The hilly terrain to reach the temple is really a scenic beauty and loved by nature lovers
