T for timber, would like to describe a hall which was the part of a college at our temple town.We are seeing above a spacious room where some children seemed to have been taking the examination.Right.It was the part and parcel of the government junior college.Very old but sturdy enough to cope up the passing time.Occasional repairs were there to face lift sake.That's not what I astonish whenever I saw it.In fact,the room had been constructed some decades back,almost during last days of British colonial ruling.

Abundant lighting and air circulation made it something special.Windows were big enough to allow more ventilation.Slopes of both sides protect from rain even it was pouring outside.Added to them,timber used for upper part and possible other parts keep the room cool.An ideal planning for a schooling atmosphere.

A Full Moon Day in the month of Kartheekam

These photos have been clicked today at the banks of Godavari.At Bhadrachalam,a negligible-walk long from the temple of Lord Rama.Right from 2 o'clock in the early morning,devotees started coming here to take a holy dip on the occasion of Kartika Purnima.Three demons Vidyunmali,Virayavana and Tarakeswara were killed by Lord Siva this day as our mythology described, and they were called by Tripurasurulu in unison.This is the short info about this festival.Around 11 o'clock people are looked in feeble number as they had to go to principal temple to have a Darshan.

Godavari is one always to attract having baths on all auspicious days.Without any difference of local and far away people,almost had become an indivisible part of  the temple town.Other days,the perennial river remains calm and alone with breeze.Hardly some people always to be seen ,If it is on holidays or holy days,the story could be different.

(Godavari banks and devotees)

And this off river photo with shadowy street just in front of the river after we got down the bathing ghats.Straightway leads to the main temple and staying facilities.Once,this place enjoyed a portion of heydays with the name of Chapta diguvu.Lost its prominence since many other junctions took the charge of attention for several reasons.However,because of our eponymous hero Lord Rama still holds its importance.The peepal tree seen in the picture actually of some hundreds of years but the boughs have been axed down by the electricity people for their convenience of work probably.Thank God there was a sign of the tree.
