“Nice Holy Place”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

The kanaka durga temple is located on top of a hill on the outskirts of vijayawada city. The temple has a good administration and crowd management is good as with other major temples in southern india. The temple is beautifully built and managed. It was a very divine experience to visit the temple.

“The best place in Vijayawada”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

Kanak durga temple is the best place to visit when you are in Vijayawada. Located in a hill with the mighty Krishna river flowing along side of the mountain...view from this place is spectacular.. you can see the entire city and the krishna river, the famous Prakasam barrage and many hills surrounding... the temple is auspicious and generally 2-3 thousand visitors in any day ..hence..better to take 100 rs lane and have a quick darshan..right upto the IDOL.. the golden temple top looks spectacular in the evening..when lights are projected..

“Vijayawada's pride..”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Kanaka Durga Temple is situated on the banks of Krishna river. situated above hill top is a nice auspicious and historic temple with nice view point from top. During Dasara & Vijayadasami temple will be very busy and may need much time for darshan. It is better to avoid temple or even vijayawada touring in summer (april&may) as mercury may touch from somewhere 52 to 60 even,

“Very hot and tiring”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Please avoid summer, the buses which is plying up and down the temple which is in a small hillock, is very very crowded, it will be better to take the steps and that too in winter, it will be very arduous in summer, the temple premises will have so many people trying to extract money from you, exercise caution.
