The Essence of Incredible India
Andhra Pradesh is home to the country’s longest coastline at 972 kilometres, as well as the pristine Krishna and Godavari rivers. To the west, the state borders the Bay of Bengal. The tourism department proudly promotes this state as India’s “Kohinoor.” Tirupati Temple, located within the state, is among the most visited religious sites in the world. The Srisailam Mallikarjuna Temple is yet another well-known Shiva shrine. It is one of the twelve Jyotirlinga temples in India
A Hub of Tourist Spots
Despite the recent division of the state of Andhra Pradesh, resulting in the formation of Seemandhra (what was left of Andhra Pradesh after the Telangana region was carved out), Seemandhra appears to have gotten the better share with regards to tourism. Seemandhra now includes the Belum Caves, Nagarjuna Konda, Borra Caves, and Pulicat Lake. Andhra Pradesh has a well-established tourism industry on top of preserving its distinctive culture and cuisine. Dhulikatta, Bavikonda, Thotlakonda, Amravati, Nagarjuna Konda, etc., are just a few of the Buddhist-influenced centres in the state.
Some of the state’s most impressive landmarks, including the Srisailam and Lepakshi temples, date back to the Vijayanagara dynasty. The Shahi Jamia Masjid, located in the Adoni neighbourhood of the Kurnool district, is one of the most well-known mosques in the state. One of the main attractions in the city is Rajahmundry City, which is situated along the Godavari River. Similar to that, Kolleru Lake, one of India’s biggest freshwater lakes, is also situated in this state.
