Balakrishna Temple Chengizkhan Pet
Balakrishna Temple is located in a village called chengizkhanpet near Guntur at the foot hills of famous kondaveedu hills which also hold a majestic fort in ruins. The village has good very motor-able access from Guntur, Chilakaluripet, Narasaraopet. The road is good for delicate cars too.
The idol is unique in that is very big idol and said to be only one such idol with the lord shown at young age with a butter ball in his hand in India.
The following picture was taken with consent of the main pujari.
The pictures below are of a Siva temple nearby which is in ruins with clues to its grand past. There is a self appointed elderly Muslim man who acts as a guide and gladly receives your gracious ‘bakshish’
Pictured below, the Kondaveedu hills near the temples offer fantastic trekking opportunities. There are few treasure hunters too. Legend is that there were many lucky hunters!
Visited this area again recently (June 2016) on cycles with a friend Anand who works in ITC
