A Terrestrial Travel Abound with Unmundane Spirit

On 7th April, 2018 we ( my fellow traveler and I) visited two interesting places with historical and-cultural-significance-in the state of Andhrapradesh. We first headed to Jaladheeswara temple at Ghantasala village, the fourth ancient temple that belongs to 1st century which was installed by Agastya. We were stopped at the entrance as the colossus of Ghantasala, Jaladheeswara and gowthama Buddha where the air is suffused  with the transcendental panorama. The mystic received goosebumps. 


There is nothing new or exciting  in the temple of Jaladheeswara to the ordinary. Everything is banal to a dull spirited and blunt witted man. The historic truth hidden behind the temple unveils the intense spiritual feeling. The stone inscriptions showing that the temple  belongs to 1st century titillates the senses and at once you feel the aura of Agastya.


On the return journey we stopped at Movva. The small village is the birthplace of the great 17th century composer Kshetrayya. We could not learn much about kshetrayya but we were content with the sight of the village centre and the jabled temple of Krishna. I have a penchant for old styled houses. I took a snap of the 1980s house and had a brief conversation with the house owner. The castle-type ancient houses of 60s and 70s are tug at heart. wow! castle or house?

In our onward journey we first embarked on  pamarru stopped for a while at Hitam school and continued to Ghantasala via , kuchipudi and movva, finally landed at Ghantasala the Nigara to my heart. The back roads were  surrounded by greenery and  were dotted by villages. The ample ways side ponds are filled with brilliant red lotuses that stung our eyes. I kissed the  crimson lotus flowers (my camera) that sedated me. For breakfast we sojourned at Kuchipudi village where the EPONYMOUS classical dance form is being nurtured for centuries. 

When we resumed our journey after the breakfast vistas of green trees and clean serene cement roads buzzing with silence, ancient castle-like houses enriched our journey. They looked like oriental dancers lined up to invite us to Ghantasala singing the traditional welcome song.   



The return journey is a PHANTASMAGORIA of exuberant images but my emotion laden heart was consistently railed by languorous Kshetrayya padam compositions which were simpatico to wistful thoughts that melted down with the cooing of French greetings at the Launching ceremony of French program at HITAM school @ Pamarru. The mysterious journey lost its spiritual moisture and the day shriveled its face and finally transmuted  into an effervescent  French class echoing with euphoric French salutations!!!
