Andhra Pradesh - Glorious Remnants Of The Past

Hyderabad, ramoji film city, warangal, srisailam, visakhapatnam (vizag)

Andhra Pradesh exists in its fertile coastal plains, semi arid Deccan plateau and the lofty hillscapes of the Eastern Ghats. Exquisite crafts, glorious remnants of the past, vibrant festivities, irresistible delicacies coupled with charming features of the people and the sonorant mother tongue Telugu leave behind indelible impressions.


Hyderabad - a natural and sophisticated blend of old and new where the old ‘Nawabi’ life style competes with the modern. City’s major tourist attractions – Salarjung Museum, the largest one-man collection of art and artifacts, Birla Mandir, Snow World, Laser show, Mecca Masjid, Charminar - the landmark of Hyderabad, the Laad Bazaar – famous for its Hyderabad jewellery and boating in the Hussainsagar Lake, sailing past the monolithic statue of Buddha.


Ramoji Film City
A dream world created for the celluloid on a sprawling 1000 acres, with every imaginable set and location - Ramoji Film City on the outskirts of Hyderabad offers facilities to produce any kind of movie. Apart from sets, there are hotels where tourists can stay within the complex and explore this magical world on their own. This is supposed to be the largest and amongst the most comprehensive and professionally planned film production centre in the world surpassing the size and facilities of the Universal Studios of Hollywood.


Warangal was once the heartland of Telugu culture and the capital of the Kakatiya rulers. However, today it still has some of the best forms of temple architecture. The 1000 - pillared temple and the Ramappa Temple in the district are glowing examples of the exquisite architecture patronized by the Kakatiyas. The main attractions are the Planetarium, Musical Garden, Rock Garden, Archeological Museum and the Sanskruti Vihar.


The Brahmaramba Mallikarjuna Swamy Temple houses one of the twelve Jyotirlingas, which are natural stone formations in the shape of a linga. Built in the 12th century during the rule of the Kalyana Chalukyas, the temple received patronage from the Kakatiyas. The temple is situated in the Srisailam-Nagarjun Sagar Tiger Reserve. The Reserve is home to wildlife such as tigers, panthers, jackals, striped hyenas, small Indian civet as well as various species of deer and reptiles.


Vast stretches of beaches right next to the city on one side and undulating green hills on the other side have made Vizag, a tourist heaven. The main attractions are the Simhachalam temple, Rishikonda Beach, the Dolphin’s Nose hillock projecting into the sea, the INS Kusura – the only submarine museum in India and the first in Asia, Thotlakonda – a Buddhist site and the Kailasagiri Park – located atop a hill gives you a bird’s eye view of the city. On the outskirts of the city is Araku Valley inhabited by 19 tribes where you can visit a tribal habitat museum, a traditional tribal village and finally the Borra Caves where million years old stalactite and stalagmite form will fascinate you.
