About vijayawada

Curled up along the banks of the Krishna River, is Vijayawada city in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Vijayawada is a confluence of modernity and traditionalism, and one can appreciate this curious amalgam in its history seen in the Kondapalli Fort, the century-old Prakasam Dam, the Undavalli Caves, plus the Mogalarajapuram Caves that are supposed to have been carved in the 7th century and 5th century A.D. respectively. Glistening skyscrapers and chrome buildings such as PVP Square, Trendset Mall, corporate offices represent the modern side of the city. If you are fascinated with religious places, then think no further than Subramanya Swamy Temple, Hazarat Bal Mosque, Hinkar Thirtha which is a Jain temple and Gunadala Mary Matha Church, besides others.\r\n\r\nYou can revisit history at Victoria Jubilee Museum, have an idyllic stroll at the River Valley Museum or Krishnaveni Mandapam and unwind at Bhavani Island riverfront resort or Haailand Resort. The Rajiv Gandhi Park is great for its horticulture, zoo and water fountain. Gandhi Hill is famed for being the first Gandhi Memorial with seven stupas in the country inclusive of a library, sound and light show with a planetarium, etc. Water sports enthusiasts can dive in at Sibar Disneyland and Water Park.
