The Bogatha Waterfalls are also close to the Sri Bhogadri Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Temple, and one can walk from the temple to the top of the waterfalls.
Vinay Vangala, a Hyderabad resident who recently visited Bhogatha Waterfalls with his friends, says the "Niagara of Telangana" is the perfect place for a long drive and a family getaway. He went on to say that the entry ticket is more valuable than a three-hour show in a closed AC hall. Also, I appreciate the authorities' efforts to keep this location in good condition.
