Prakasam Barrage is an icon for Vijayawada. It's the first Barrage across Krishna River. Now it's upgraded with colour changing lighting system. It's one of the beautiful colour changing bridges. It's nice to see Morning or evening. We used to sit on it even nights. The reservoir side boating available. Other side water front under construction. Hope you enjoy...

Once upon a time, this land mark bridge used to be the hub of activity, but is it almost depilitated with many feeling it too risky to use. Still people gather there in the evenings, stay up to late night, for a change.
