about vijayawada


Legend has it that Vijayawada, meaning 'place of victory', was created by Arjuna of the Mahabharata fame after Lord Shiva's blessings. One of Andhra Pradesh's largest cities, Vijayawada is also a thriving spot and attracts plenty of tourists. It is also said that the place owes its name to the fact that Goddess Durga chose to rest here after slaying a demon. Naturally, a major tourist attraction is the Kanaka Durga Temple. The Undavalli caves dating back to the 7th Century AD are another major draw.
Kanaka Durga Temple is the most important temple in Vijayawada. High up on the Indrakiladri Hill, the temple is thronged by devotees. Friday evenings, when the goddess is dressed in silken finery, at her glittering best, are always crowded. You can drive up to the hill or walk to reach the temple in about an hour and enjoy the beauty of it.

Made in 1855, Prakasam Barrage on the Krishna regulates the water levels trapped between the city and the series of hills around it. The water is used for drinking, irrigation and transport. From the tourist’s point of view, the tall barrage presents the city in a capsule. Drive onto it for the unbeatable wide-angle view of Vijayawada.

Undavalli Caves are an entire cave complex. The cluster of 64 caves of black rock is truly spectacular. They hold lovely figurines made of monolithic black granite rock. The most notable is the stunning image of a reclining Vishnu.
Balasubramanya Temple in Vijayawada is known to help devotees find their life partner within 41 days of visiting him. There are over 350 steps to climb up before reaching the summit. If you happen to come here on Tuesday, don't be surprised by the massive crowd.
Bhavani Island on the Krishna River, with an APTDC-run resort, is a popular and breezy getaway for a city famous for being the hottest, sweatiest and sultriest.
