If the United States has Universal Studios, then India has Ramoji Film City, the world’s largest integrated film studio complex. Spread over 2,000 acres of land studded with hills and lakes, it is India’s filmmakers’ first choice when it comes to making their films as it is essentially an unlimited area of creativity for any major or minor film production. Every facility a filmmaker could ever want can already be found here: 50 studio floors, support systems, high-tech laboratories, outdoor locations, up-to-date technology, greenery, and the wonderful hillscapes.

Tourists can visit some of the attractions that includes a Japanese garden, an accurate reproduction of an airport terminal, artifical waterfalls, churches, mosques and temples, palace interiors, and a winding highway, among others.
