Vizianagaram , Andhra Pradesh

A village near Bobbilli in Andhra Pradesh, Balijipeta is famous for the sheer force of faith that resides in this place. With numerous temples and thousands of believers flocking this place every year, this is one of those places which guarantee you Nirvana. There are so many temples that you may very well get confused which one to start with. Yet, there is faith and that is more than what can be said for most places in this world. The Sri Venkateshwara Swami Temple is the one which holds the most value to the village people. So much so that most people in the village have venkata as part of their name. Many followers of Lord Venkateshwar come here every year to be part of this unshakeable faith. The Sri Nilakantesawa Temple again is one of great significance. Built by the Kalinga empire in the 10th Centry AD this is an old temple which is a big part of history and a prosperous dynasty, the marks of which are borne proudly by the temple. The major festival of this village is the Jagannath Radha yatra. This is a yatra which takes place in the month of July and transforms the entire village into a joyous place. There are people from all the neighbouring villages who flock here to take part in the festivities which last for ten days. There are vehicles made for the Gods and pulled by people who participate in this yatra. It is supposed to be a very holy journey and participating in it guarantees you a place in heaven. The village has its own Goddess called China Polamma who is regularly visited. A fascinating place to say the least, do drop in Balajipeta if you are in the region. It is a learning experience.
