Reach Alakananda via a
Super-Fast 6 Lane National Highway!
Excellent Connectivity to Hyderabad, Amaravati & Vijayawada
Imagine zipping along a newly UPGRADED super-fast 4 & 6 lane NH with multiple food courts along the way to keep you recharged! This is already a favorite stretch for bikers & cyclists too, due to the smooth, safe & congestion free roads.
6 laning of Vijayawada to Nandigama stretch is almost complete (as seen above) & hence you can reach Alakananda in under 60 minutes from Vijayawada & just 2.5 hours from Hyderabad (and once 6-laning is completed upto Hyderabad ORR, you may reach even faster!)
Alakananda is also right next to the upcoming Inland WaterWays Cruise Terminal – which is the starting point of National Waterway No.4 on the Krishna River
(explained further below)
4 & 6 Lane Highway (NH65) for Easy & Quick Connectivity
Alakananda is just 10 minutes off the Hyderabad – Vijayawada NH65 and connected to the NH via a 60 Ft Double Lane Road (which will be expanded to 4 lanes), giving you excellent connectivity to Hyderabad on one side & Vijayawada, Guntur & Amaravati on the other side.
Travel on Krishna River (Alakananda to Vijayawada)
The Krishna river, from Muktyala (next to Alakananda) to Vijayawada is being developed by the Central Govt as National Waterway 4 to provide passenger cruise connectivity (i.e river tourism circuit) – putting you within 35 to 40 minutes of Vijayawada & Amaravati by boat!
Access to Andhra Ring Road & Krishna River Bridge Network
Already approved & supported by Central & YSRCP Govt, these major infrastructure developments will make it very easy for you to reach Vijayawada / Guntur / Amaravati within 45 minutes to 1 hour from Alakananda – further enhancing its connectivity.

Inland Waterways Passenger Cruise & Cargo Terminal coming up right next to Alakananda
Water transport is 5x CHEAPER, 2x FASTER & reduces pollution & traffic congestion by over 70%, compared to road transport.
And so as part of “Sagarmala” – the Central Govt’s biggest infrastructure project to develop major rivers of India as shipping channels, the Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI) has begun developing the Krishna River as India’s official National Waterway No.4 (similar to an NH, but on water!)
Once complete, this will allow year-round transportation of goods / construction material on the river and also create a very vibrant river tourism / water sports circuit along the Krishna River – unlocking tremendous traffic to this area, elevating Alakananda and its surroundings.
River transport will become a regular habit for the general public (like how the metro rail in Hyderabad is an integral part of daily life), putting Amaravati & Vijayawada within 30 and 45 minutes by boat respectively from Alakananda – much quicker than traveling by road!
The roads will also be free of congestion as all heavy material like cement, sand & steel will be transported on the river, freeing up the highways – making it easier, faster & more pleasant for you to live here.
As of October 2019, the Central Govt (BJP) has finalised 8.57 acres just 300 feet next to Alakananda to construct one of 3 permanent Passenger & Cargo Terminals on the Krishna River (NW4)
Dredging in Progress at Prakasham Barrage
(Rs.144 crores has been spent already on dredging the Krishna River from Muktyala where our project is located upto Vijayawada, with an aim to start commercial and tourism operations by end of 2020)
And best of all, Alakananda is located between Pulichintala Dam (10 mins upstream) & Prakasam Barrage downstream – which means :
- Absolutely ZERO RISK of flooding as water levels will be continuously monitored and maintained as this segment is located between 2 dams which can control water outflow very precisely.
- You will always enjoy full water levels 365 days a year – giving you the best & most fulfilling water-sports experience and river views for life!

SGS Ashram on Campus
Alakananda is proud to have donated 2 acres of riverfront land for construction of Sri Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji’s Ashram. Declared as “Datta Peetam” by Sri Swamiji himself, this SGS Ashram will be a positive force for the township and is already attracting the attention of his global base of affluent followers!
Vedadri Narasimha Swamy Temple
Located just 5 minutes down the river from Alakananda, this temple is very popular with a huge land bank in its control giving it a huge spiritual tourism potential on the likes of Yadagirigutta near Hyderabad and is already a very popular destination during Krishna Pushkaralu.
