Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Also known as the Dakshina Kashi, Achanta or previously known as Marthandapuram has a great history. The temple has a swayambu Siva linga. The temple has a huge five storied Gopuram. The steps are wooden. The main shiva temple is at the centre of the complex. Several small temples dot all round this complex. One corner has Lord Satyanarayana, another corner has Saraswati Devi, the third corner has Lord Hanuman and the 4th corner is the administrative office.

You will also find small temples of Vigneswara, Parvati, Someswara, Lakshmaneswara, Bhimeswara, and several more Gods. In the evenings, parrots can be seen flying across the temple and fill the complex with their chirping sounds.
After Kashi, this is the only other temple where a big lamp (kaparavattu) is lighted during the Karthika month. Devotees come from far to offer cow ghee to the lamp. The lamp keeps burning for the whole of the month. The idols are taken on a boat shire in the temple pond beside the temple.

Sivarathri is a major festival held in Achanta. The temple lighting is something to be looked at. A major fair is held for 10 days. The temple choultry feeds all the pilgrims for lunch and dinner for 5 days. Cultural programs like Orchestras, magic shows, dramas, dance, mimicry and whatnot from morning to late night. The idols are taken in a procession with a huge following of dancers and musicians all around the village. The God’s chariot is also pulled on one day.

APSRTC arranges several buses to this place during Sivarathri. Pilgrims throng in thousands during this period. Most of the locals staying outside make it a point to visit their hometown for the week. Several stalls offer dates and a sweet candy called Jeedi made out of sugar and then cut into cubes. Toys, balloons, bangles and ladies items, kitchenware, pottery items, and several such items are on sale in the various makeshift stall along the road from the village centre to the temple.

The nearest airports are Vijayawada or Rajamahendravaram. Best way to reach is get on to the NH16 highway between Rajamahendravaram and Vijayawada and turn off at Siddhantham. Just 10 km from there.
