Kanak Durga Temple is situated at hill. It is very old temple. Buses are available to reach here. But from bus stop one has to walk for a distance to reach to temple. For senior citizens and differently enabled persons, the temple trust provides free service of battery operated vehicles. Temple in neat and clean.

Situated on the Indrakeeladri hill in vijayawada, it is one of the most famous devotional places in andhra pradesh. The temple is always full with devotees. The view from outside the temple where you can see whole of vijayawada is amazing

We expected a huge crowd but surprisingly there was not too much crowd.The temple was on top of a small hill which we can take a walk as well. We took a holy dip in Krishna river. We took a special queue to get a good view of Goodess Durga. There is a Shiva temple inside as well.

This is an awesome temple that draws huge crowds. Located on top of a hill, this temple has a winch to carry people which of course does not work. So, people just climb it. The lines can be very long-- great time to pray and keep your mind calm.
