Khammam City Travel Guide

Khammam, another interesting place to visit in Andhra Pradesh, is a land where history and modernity walk hand-in-hand. The town is located on the bank of river Munneru. Khammam got its name after a local hill, which was called as 'Stambhadri'. The town was called with different names starting with Stambhadri, Kambhadri, Kambham mettu, Khammam mettu and then finally as Khammam. The town is now the district's head quarters and an administrative centre.

Khammam offers many places to see in and around, right from religious to historical to and adventurous. Amongst the religious places around Khammam, Bhadrachalam is one of the must visit shrines. It is the abode of Lord Rama along with His consort Goddess Sita and His brother Lord Lakshmana, about hundred kilometres from the town. Nelakondapalli is an attraction famous as archaeological site, which is said to be in existence from the time of Mahabharata. A refreshing place is the Palair Lake, about 30 kms from the town. It is worth driving down to the lake for the tranquil atmosphere it offers. Papikondalu, a beautiful mountain range with lush green forest is another mesmerizing attraction around Khammam. If you are visiting Bhadrachalam, the best way to visit is to travel by boat/ferry that takes you to the temple. The boat ride offers one of the best views of Papikondalu. For some adventure, you can visit Kinnerasani Sanctuary near Paloncha village.

Best time to visit Khammam is in the month of August to December. The weather is good and not too hot or humid. All-in-all the city is a nice place to visit.
