About Pay Respect at the Gandhi Hill

Situated behind the Vijayawada railway station, Gandhi Hill is a monument of the Indian Independence struggle. Originally known as the ORR Hill, this place was later renamed after the Father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi, for paying homage to him. It is the only memorial monument in India to have seven stupas. The memorial has stunning stone slab, which consists of Mahatma Gandhi’s quotation. It even has a library, a planetarium, and a toy train. However, since this memorial is in a dilapidated condition, the government is constantly making efforts to restore it. The restoration project not just includes repair or maintenance of this memorial but also the government is planning to set up food courts and an amphitheater alongside the replacing the toy train with battery-operated buggies.

Historical Context: A gandhi Statue 16m tall was unveiled by the then President of India Dr. Zakir Hussainon 6th October,1968
Pro Tip: Best time to visit this place is between November and March
