I was travelling in an AC sleeper bus that took off from Panjagutta in Hyderabad at 10:30pm and reached Proddatur at 6am the next day. Staying in a bus for almost 9 hours was tiresome yet the bus gave rest stops and the gentle staff took good care of the passengers. They bus provided blankets, pillow and TV installed for all individuals.
I had plans to sight some of the temples situated in Proddatur including India’s biggest Kanyaka Parameswari Temple, the Sri Rameshwaram Temple, the Ayyapa Swami Temple, the Shivalayam Temple and the Satyanarayan Temple. Along with temples, the city also has mosques like the Khadar Hussain Masjid, the Noorani Masjid, to name a few. Apart from these, Proddatur also houses churches like the Penthe Kostu Machine Church, the Shalom Church, the RCM Church and the Bethania Church, among many others. Each place of visit was remarkable and I cannot afford to miss any of these. I also wanted to taste the delicious sweet called ‘Tangedu Palle’ of Proddatur that is prepared especially with lots of ghee.
