Culture of vijayawada

Vijayawada’s culture is similar to the rest of the state in its ethos. Various festivals like Dussehra, Durga Pooja, Vijayadashami, Theppotsavam, Krishna Pushkaran, Ganesh Chaturthi, Diwali, Eid al-Fitr and Christmas are celebrated with pomp and gaiety. The culture is represented in Kondapalli locallyhand-crafted toys, in the classical dance of Kuchipudi and in the ‘burrakathas’(an oral storytelling technique in the Katha tradition), Tholubommalata or puppet shows, street plays and Janapada Nrityam or folk dances.\n\nAndhra cuisine is the palate of choice with its tangy fiery flavour, thanks to its chilies and tamarind. One should have a taste of pulihora (tamarind rice), chutney or pachadi, mango pickle or avakaya, all trademarks of Andhra cuisine. Non-vegetarians can have a go at dishes like ‘gonghura mutton’, ‘bommidala pulusu’, ‘natukodi chicken’, etc. Its street food is one of Vijayawada’s best kept secrets. Vijayawada has a couple of multiplexes like INOX, PVR, PVP Cinemas plus Cine Rajdhani the box office of Telugu movies. For ethnic shopping, M.G. Road and Kalanjali Arts & Crafts are the places to stop at. Besant Road is a shoppers’ street shopping paradise complete with hawkers and pushcart sellers.
