Patala Ganga

About Patala Ganga :

Near the Srisailam Mallikarjuna Temple is the Patala Ganga, the sacred place in the backwaters of River Krishna. The visitors visit the Patala Ganga to take a dip in the holy water of River Krishna. For the visitors to get into the water and protect them from the strong force of the river, the place provides steps and iron chains. 

This place gives you an overview of the wide reservoir and the majestic mountains covered with the greenary of the Nallamala forest. It is the most ideal place for the best views of River Krishna. Geographically, it is located behind the Srisailam Dam and the flood gates can be seen from there.

You can take a boating ride to Akkamahadevi caves from there. Besides boating, other major activities include the ropeway. The ropeway operates from the Haritha Hotel to reach Patala Ganga. It is a breathtaking experience. 

Several pilgrims take bath in River Krishna at Pathala Ganga before visiting the deity of Srisailam Temple. Around 500 steps from the Hanuman Temple (Haritha Hotel) need to be trekked down to reach Pathala Ganga. A rope way is operated from Haritha Hotel (Rope way center) to reach Pathala Ganga. Taking the rope way is unique experience with breathtaking views of the backwaters of Srisailam Dam and the surrounding hills. The stepped pathway to Pathala Ganga was constructed by Reddy King Prolaya Vema Reddy in 14th century.
