About nellore

Rising on the banks of the river Penna in Andhra Pradesh is the beautiful city of Nellore. The region is a cultural getaway that was once a part of many glorious empires that reigned supreme in India. Nellore carries the legacies of all these kingdoms with great pride. The ancient and majestic forts of Udayagiri and Venkatagiri are perfect examples of this. The city is also a center of many religions. Nellore is dotted with many temples known for their intricate and beautiful architecture as well as spiritual essence. Named as Vikrama Simhapuri in the past, Nellore is famous for its lush green paddy fields. Mother Nature has also blessed this land with many lakes, lagoons, and thick forests. The Pulicat Lake Bird Sanctuary and Nelapattu Bird Sanctuary attract hundreds of migratory birds, every year.\r\n\r\nWhat is truly interesting about this vibrant city is not just its natural beauty and historical significance, but also its importance in the technological advance of the country. The Sriharikota Launching Range is located in the district of Nellore and is the place from where ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) launches most of its rockets. The Krishnapattanam Port is the deepest port in India and handles 75 million tons of cargo, annually. The place has also become a center of learning, with the establishment of many schools and universities in the district.
