About Bhadrachalam Temple
Bhadrachalam temple was constructed in 17th century by a great devotee of Lord Rama named Bhaktha Ramadas. In this temple, Lord Sri Rama has appeared as a self manifested deity (swayambhu). His divine form appears with sankham, chakram, a bow and arrow in his four hands along with Mother Sitha and Lakshmana. The holy river Godavari flows around this pilgrimage. According to Bramha Purana, a devotee taking darsan of Lord Sri Rama, bathing in Godavari, performing charity, meditation, yajnas and thadiyaradhana (annadanam) will be 10 million times more fruitful in Bhadrachalam than in any other holy place. Millions of devotees attend the Sri Sitha Rama Kalyanam which is celebrated grandly with pomp and splendor annually on Sri Rama Navami day.
HH Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji’s Rama Kratu Sthu:pa
HH Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji established two Sri Rama Krathu sthupas or pillars in Bhadrachalam temple. These Rama Krathu sthupas were built to re-establish the greatness of Lord Sri Rama and to create awareness about Srimad Ramayana. HH Sri Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji performed Sri Rama Krathus at 108 places by lighting a jyothi on the first day and using that fire for all the yajnas continuously for nine years. These yajnas were performed all around India and Nepal.
HH Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji had an ardent desire to provide free sathvik prasadam and lodging to all the visiting pilgrims. This endeavor was called Ramanuja Kutam. To fulfill HH Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji’s vision, HH Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji established an asram in April 1998 near the temple. On November 30th 1998, Ramanuja Kutam started full-fledged thadiyaradha services to all the pilgrims. For the convenience of pilgrims, a new asramam building was constructed in 2011.

I am visited a place two months back. It’s a good place very peaceful and giving good feeling. We took bath in Godavari. The Jeeyar Asram is very comfortable, very near to the temple with all facilities. Thanks to Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji, we had sumptuous and delicious meals all three times a day. Made our darsanam and visit to temple very comfortable. We plan to come again.
We came from Guntur and visited temple. We stayed at Chinna Jeeyar Asramam. It felt like a home. I had no problem with food, milk though I came with my three year old child.
