About Vijayawada

Perched on the peaceful banks of Krishna river, Vijayawada is the second largest city of Andhra Pradesh. Owing to its rapid growth and development, this city is also referred to as the “Media, political, and commercial capital of Andhra Pradesh”. The very name Vijayawada implies “The Land of Victory” and the city has been named after goddess Kanaka Durga, also called Vijaya. Vijayawada city presents before the world a blend of the new and the old world; while on one hand it shelters rock-cut temples and caves, it manifests modern architectural marvels on the other.

The beauty of Vijayawada lies in its most treasured history, heritage, and culture. That said, the modern avatar of this exuberant city is equally stunning and delightful for the eyes. The ancient caves, magnificent temples, lush parks, iconic museums, towering forts, and opulent malls, enrich the charm of this wonderful city.
