Tirupati - Andhra Pradesh

Known all over the country for the sacred Sri Venkateswara Temple, Tirupati is located in the Chittoor District of Andhra Pradesh. The temple is actually located in Tirumala along with a number of other temples, though Sri Venkateshwara Temple or Tirupati Balaji is the main attraction for visitors. Tirumala is always bustling with energy owing to the many tourists as well as the number of festivals celebrated here. Legend has it that one should visit Sri Varahaswami temple before visiting Sri Venkateswaraswami. Varahaswami owned the seven hills and agreed to give them to Sri Venkateswaraswami with the demand that he too should be worshipped. And for this, Sri Venkateswaraswami asked his pilgrims to visit the Sri Varahaswami temple before visiting him. For first timers there are a few things you should keep in mind including appropriate clothing, no alcohol and carrying extra locks for your rooms as well as vehicles. Before visiting the temple, you'll need darshan tickets, which are available at various TTD counters across the country. A beautiful place with immense spiritual energy, Tirupati is a must visit.

It’s a must visit place. It will take at least 5-6 hrs to come out, once you are inside the Temple. People from all over India come for the Darshan of Tirupati balaji. Now it’s time for our destination and my home town –“Visakhapatnam”. Till then we didn’t know how we would reach Vizag. No bookings, nothing. It was 8pm. Then we decide we will hop in Vijayawada and from there we will go to Vizag. We got a Volvo bus from Tirupati to Vijayawada around 9pm. We were really tired. It was damn hot. 12th night went in traveling to Vijayawada.

We reached Vijayawada around 4am. Now we were thinking how to go to Vizag and suddenly we saw one SUV (driver was shouting – Who wants to go to Vizag) and finally we reached Visakhapatnam around 1pm. It was an awesome road trip from Vijayawada to Visakhapatnam (almost 8 hrs). Am back at home. I started almost 15 days before from this place. I love beaches and I will say Vizag beaches are to die for. It was so refreshing but very hot, I will say the hottest. We were in Vizag for 2 days and on 14th Day my friends left for Kolkata again. This was really a tough one to write because it’s been almost 5 years. I have tried my best to share my experience of Traveling through 3 different States in 13 days. It was a lifetime experience. Different language, culture, food, people, places- making this trip a memorable one. It wasn’t easy to plan. But we did. Any suggestions or Questions are always welcome. Please feel free to share your travel experience, if any. -Gautam

Plenty of express trains run between Vishakapatnam and Bhubaneshwar and take around 7 hours. The scenery begins to change again as you pass through the Eastern coast. We had wanted to visit the beaches of Vizag as it is often called Goa of the Eastern Coast. So we booked ourselves into the The Park. Overlooking the Bay of Bengal, this luxurious property sprawling over 6 acres of a spectacular private beachfront. Sandy beaches complete with a lighthouse underline the romance of the sea with breathtaking sunrises and lovely tropical gardens. Perhaps a day was too less as the hotel is excellent. But we still had a lot of cities to cover, so back we went to the railway station the next morning to head into Chennai.

Horsley Hills - Andhra Pradesh

Horsley Hills is a popular summer getaway situated in the Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh. Though the weather here is pleasant throughout the year, the best time to visit is during summer. Though one would assume it's a hill station, it's actually a small scenic spot with not much to do and unless you'd like to go trekking or would like to spend a night here, don't plan a long trip. The touristy attractions here are Koundinya Wildlife Sanctuary, Environment Park, Mallamma Temple and boating in the nearby town of Manapalle. Don't expect too much from this scenic spot since even though it's picturesque, there's not much to do.
DAY1- Once all formalities were done and caution money of 500 was paid in reception we headed for our room which is at Governors Bungalow. After dropping our luggage we headed towards the restaurant to have lunch followed by a little stroll. The little one was ready to jump into the pool but it was too crowded so we decided to try it next day. DAY2- We woke up at 8 and got ready quickly to head for breakfast . It was South Indian breakfast with usual Idli, plain dosa, porial, sambar etc. After filling our stomachs we went to the swimming pool and had plunge. Next we headed to the Eco Park just opposite to the resort which is run by AP Forest Department . The Eco park has some birds, crocodiles, rabbits and other small animals which kids enjoy a lot. There was a forest bungalow which I believe has the best view of the valley but getting a booking in such FD property itself is no less than adventure! While returning me and Anindita did some outdoor activities like archery, dirt biking and Sanjivani enjoyed the trampoline. After having lunch at restaurant we came back to our room for a nap. In the evening we went to the other view point, around 200 meters from the police station. Uniqueness of this site is you can see both Sunrise and Sunset and have wider view of the valley. We sat on the rock and enjoyed the Sun set. The sky was painted with endless shades of blue and orange! The view and the ambiance was amazing and one can spend hours just sitting there! On our way back we decided to try the Kerala Massage at the Ayurvedic Massage Center next to the pool. I got a full body and head massage ( Rs 1000) and wify had face and head massage ( Rs 350). After such a relaxing massage, steam bath , few drinks and awesome dinner I was sure to miss the Sunrise yet again and I was not wrong! DAY-3 Day 3 ( 5th May 2014) As usual missed the Sunrise but woke up early to wrap up things. Before going for breakfast we explored the uncovered areas and found another view point towards Windfall block. This one has the widest view of the valley and we found another hotel just next to it. There were some tea and snack stalls and I believe this spot is open for general public. Panorama VP4 We came back to room, had shower, packed things and were ready to checkout. After checking out from the rooms we had to collect the bills and the caution deposit from reception. Started at 11.45 from the Horsley Hills and followed the same route. This time got stuck in nasty traffic at NTR Circle of Madanapalle, it was utter chaos. Anyway as the road was already known, I was able to manage a steady speed and reached home within 3 hours plus 1 hour of lunch break. The holiday is over but we are still engrossed in the memories of trip. About Haritha Resort The resort is located on hill top and spread across 2 sq kms. It has various kind of accommodations like AC/NON AC Bungalows, Suits, Cottages, Double bedded rooms and dormitories. APDTC has converted some colonial stuff to accommodation besides some newly erected blocks. All accommodations and facilities are spread across different levels and the entire area is covered with beautiful trees. When we called APTDC before booking they suggested to book AC room as during day time the temperature is going above 36 degrees. So we booked AC room at the Governors Bungalow. But we found AC is not absolutely necessary. The room was big with typical British style high celling a big bathroom and separate changing closet. The linen and towels were clean and well arranged. 36 inches LCD TV had Tata Sky with all major channels available and I was delighted to see a mini fridge to keep my beers chilled. We paid Rs6134 for two nights. Considering the room and huge property they manage it was value for money. None of the rooms in this resort has a direct valley view except the Horsley Suit, but it is for larger group of travelers. But there is one view point just behind the bungalow which you can avail whenever you want. The resort has a common restaurant where you get complimentary South Indian breakfast (need to pay for the kid above 3 years) . In addition to the South Indian Veg buffet Rs140/ head) you can order some non-veg side sides. They can serve dinner at room and offer some Chinese / North Indian varieties and the taste is really good. Haritha Resort has a bar but I had my own stock so cannot comment on it. Guests get free coupons ( 2 adults and 1 child per room) for using the swimming pool for 1 hour per day. Between 8 to 12 it is reserved for boarders but open for outsiders after that, its utter chaos in pool after 12. Earlier you go better it is. There is an Ayurvedic Massage Center next to the pool where you can get Kerala Massage and you can also try some outdoor activities.

With 1265m of hilltops above sea level, I had to cross the Horsley valleys to reach the other side of the state. And so it struck me, why not take a round of the hills itself and explore a little more when I’ve had time! So I drove past the charming and enchanting hill station of Horsley and drove around forests, dense with a variety of species, exhibiting aromas all along the forest winds. And around these plush green plains and species of flora was also a good population of fauna. Wildlife of the east, as many have called them. However, my short stay and interaction with the Chenchu tribes and their famous Pungannur cows was definitely the highlight of this trip!

The temple itself lies on the seventh and last peak formed out of the head of the snake. The Pushkarini holy tank is also situated just on the side. The temple is in the Dravidian Architecture and is the richest temple in the whole world. This is mainly due to the amount of donations it recieves every year.
One of the richest temples in India. Apart from religious aspects, this temple has one awesome architecture.

The most famous temple which spreads in an area of 2.2 acres. This is located on the seventh hill of Tirumala Hills. If you plan to visit the temple in a general line, be prepared for a marathon and the tug of war competition as the Darshan is similar to these games. People have a lot of faith and indeed the temple is very beautiful but it is always flooded with the devotees. You would also see a lot of security arrangements and various other arrangements done to make sure no one faces any issue. The temple is located on the south of the holy Swami Pushkarini River. People who have the faith in Balaji, feel at peace when they are here, donate a lot of precious stuff also there is a strange practice of donating your hair here. The temple is considered most divine. It is the second most frequented shrine all over the world, the first being Vatican. It is also one of the richest temples in the world.

Mantralayam - Andhra Pradesh

On the border of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka lies the saintly city of Mantralayam. The city revolves around the much prestigious saint, Shri Guru Raghavendra Swamy. Being a relatively small place and unpopular among tourists, it makes sense that most of the visitors here are his disciples. The Samadhi Temple or Brundavan is the site where Swamy is believed to have entered his tomb, alive. Inside the complex of the temple is the main shrine of the saint. Devotees still believe that he dwells in his holy form. Being the site of utmost devotion, it is very restricted in its approaches. Men who want to perform aarti are supposed to wear only dhotis and women only sarees. This dress code is strictly followed when you want to go near the Brundavan. Food or bhog is served to all devotees and visitors during the afternoon. In a place named Raichur, 20 km from Mantralayam, the temple of Panchamukha commemorates the place where Shri Guru Raghavendra meditated for 12 years at a stretch. Overall this place holds the aura of an earthly experience rather than serving as a vacation.

The name 'Charminar' is made up of two very distinct words- Char and Minar means four towers. Each part of the monument has a plaza like opening overlooked by a tower. The oldest mosque, Mecca Masjid of Hyderabad is also a part of the Char Minar. This was built by the 5th Sultan named Quli Qutb Shahi on the banks of the Musi River. It is right in the heart of the city and was taken for diving the city into four parts for government purposes in the earlier times. Some say that this monument was built as a symbol of love for his queen Bhagyavathi and some say it was built to mark the end of a fatal plague that had affected the city. There is also known to be a decret tunnel beneath the floors of the Charminar, which connects it to the Golconda Fort staright. This was the Escape route for the royals during an emergency.

Hyderabad - Andhra Pradesh

Once the capital of the Nizams, it is now the joint capital of both the states of Andhra Pradesh as well as Telangana but officially is only the capital of the latter. It is one of the busiest cities of the country and crammed with people almost the whole year round. The old charm of the city is still intact and it is only because the people love their culture and heritage and are successful in keeping up with their roots. There are a number of places to visit in this city such as the Charminar, Golcoda Fort, Mecca Masjid and so many other places. The Hyderabadi Biryani is like the signature dish of this place and was also a favorite of the Nizam's. You still get the richest and most authentic taste of the dish out here. The market places are lined with sweet shops which sell the most delicious desserts for you to give your diet a toss. Shopping is also an option here.
The buzzing capital of the state- Hyderabad is the focus of all developments and walks on the path of becoming one of the leading metropolitans in the world! It was my last stop and seemed to offer the right eclectic mix of culture and heritage along with technology and eco-touristy values. From the visit to Golconda Fort to the popular Charminar, from the Nehru Zoological Park to Birla Mandir, from the tranquillity of Hussainsagar Lake to the exquisiteness of the Chowmahalla Palace... Hyderabad has something to offer every traveler or tourist who sets foot into its enthralling and enigmatic eco-cultural experience.

Immediately after stepping off the train in Hyderabad we got a distinct feeling that we had left northern India behind. Driving towards the city center in relatively orderly traffic we passed by the massive Hussain Sagar lake reflecting the blue skies of Hyderabad in its calm waters. After settling into a hotel, we went out exploring the city using its bus system. Suburbs sprawl out from the main business center of the city and we headed for the fancy Banjara Hills, Hyderabad’s answer to Beverly Hills. We found a branch of the Hard Rock Cafe. We couldn’t resist going in for our dinner and as it was Friday night the place was in full swing, complete with staff dancing to YMCA, bottle jugglers, a fire show and even a break dancer. For the first time in three months we were treated to a beef burger, which we hadn’t realized was possible in India

Talakona Waterfalls - Andhra Pradesh

This beautiful waterfall is in the Venkateshwara National Park in the Tirupathi Region. The waterfall is surrounded bhy lush greenery, dense forests and rich flora which makes each part of this place look immensely beautiful. The waters of the fall are said to be filled with therapeutic values due to the goodness of of medicinal plants and herbsinfused in the waters. This place has also been declared as a Bio Reserve in the year 1990 due to the presence of the herbal plants here. As you drive up this place you will come across many tall and shady trees with exoyic birds and monkeys too. Canopy walks are a major activity that you can enjoy out here. Lord siddheshwara Swamy temple is a beautiful temple that attracts many vosotors annually.
The beautiful view of the water falling deep into the valley from approximately a height of 270 is amazing. This waterfall is the highest in the state of Andhra Pradesh. Along with luring the trekkers Talakona amuses the animal lovers too. It’s a base of some endangered species like Slender Loris, Indian Giant Squirrel, Mouse Deer, Golden Gecko, Panther, Porcupine, Chital and Sambar. I would suggest go for trekking and the jungle safari.

Sila Thoranam - Andhra Pradesh

The word literally means a "Garkand of rocks" in Telegu and it is a natural arch made of a beautiful setting of rocks. This is in the hill city of Tirumalai and just about a kilometer and a half from the Venkateshwara Temple. This piece of geological wonder was discovered by a group of people who came here for the official work of findong out some geological fault. This structure is assumed to date back to more than a million years. Some people believe this is derived from the heads of the huge serpent Adishesha who was also the reason for the seven peaks around. There is at present a park with the same name circling this formation. the park is an ideal place for relaxation amidst the immense natural beauty and the pleasant weather of the hilly region.
It’s called the Rock Garden, I am sure the travelers would think of Chandigarh when the name Rock garden comes. So we have one in Tirumala as well. It’s actually a geological wonder because the rock makes a natural arch on another rock. The arch is one of the few natural arches or bridges in Asia and will steal your attention for a while. The locals have different stories as the reason behind this but whatever those be, the view is a treat here.

Tungabhadra River - Andhra Pradesh

The Ruver Tungabhadra is made with a mixture of two rivers namely the Tunga and Bhadra. Both of these rivers rise in the Western Ghats and then flow South Eastwards and at the end joins the Krishna River in the place known as Sangamaleshwaram in Andhra Pradesh. This is a perennial river and is full especially during the monsoon. The Tungabhadra Dam on this river is a major project and has proved to be very helpful in the development of infrastructure in this area.
The Tungabhadra River I am talking about is the one that you can walk to behind the Virupaksha temple. It is refreshing after your long exploration inside the temple. This is a perfect place where you can watch life unfolding on the banks of a river - just as a civilization is meant to be - while sipping away on the cooling tender coconuts.

The Children's Park, Fisheries station and Hydraulic Research Station are some other attractions here. The statue of Goddess Cauvery is considered holy for the city and is also unique one.

Nagarjuna Sagar Dam - Andhra Pradesh

In the district of Guntur, the Nargarjuna Sagar Dam is declared as one of the largest dams in Asia as well the longest masonry dam of India. The dam was fully open in the year 1972. The beautiful sceneries attracts hundreds of tourists here every month. There are regular tours organised here and you can opt for one to view the working of the turbines and then boat along the Nagarjuna Lake till the Nagarjunakonda Island. Here there is a beautiful museum in which is housed a huge collection of antiques for you to know a little more about the history of the region. The other attractions here are the Ethiopiala Waterfalls and the Srisailam Wildlife resort. Boating is thus the main activity here.
Amongst many other great dams and reservoirs built on the ferocious waters of Indian rivers stands one another great embankment on the Krishna river and its tributaries- the Nagarjuna Sagar Dam. While it’s a piece of wondrous creation of man and cement, what followed this exploration was even better as I got to the lakes of reservoir water and then the Nagarjunakonda Island. Earlier known to have been a Buddhist site, this island floats near Nagarjuna Sagar, near the dam, in the Guntur-Nalgonda district of Andhra Pradesh. The interesting ASI (Archaeological Survey of India) sites dug out in the past decade or so makes this an amazing stopover on my trip.

The fort later went to the hands of the Qutb Shahi Dynasty. The Stone tower of the fort is what makes it look even mightier. There are three entrances one after another in this fort. The first and the main one is named as Dargah Darwaza and is carved out of a single slab of granite and the next one is named as the Golconda Darwaza. The fort is now a famous picnic spot and a tourist attraction too. The Dargah of Garib Sahib, a Persian Sain is probably the most attractive part of the fort.

Ramoji Film City - Andhra Pradesh

Established in the year 1996 by the Indian filmmaker and producer Ramoji Rao, this film city also features in the list of the Guiness Book of World Records. This is the largest integrated film city of the country and is extremely well equipped. It is like a mini world inside this place with artificial houses, amusement parks, waterfalls, water bodies, markets and so much more. It is at present also a tourist attraction and recreation center which cannot just be missed on a trip to Hyderabad.
Twenty kilometres east of Hyderabad is Ramoji Film City, the world’s largest film studio complex. Tollywood, as it’s known, was opened in 1996 and produces movies in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi and also some foreign films. Set on 1,666 acres, the film studios house a total of forty-seven sound stages. Driving through different areas of the studios we were brought through sets depicting cities, suburbs, train stations, hotels and a highway with changeable street lights. There were also varied assortments of amusement rides. While the tour of the film studios was a good insight into the sets involved in bringing a movie together, the remainder of the day was a little more lackluster and a bit of a cheesy family day out.

Paradise - Andhra Pradesh

A part of the South India Shopping Mall, this is a restaurant which is famous for its Hyderabadi Biryani and kebabs. Paradise has now become like a brand name and people refre it to Paradise biryani rather than biryani from Paradise Restaurant. The quality and quantity are both more than awesome and the taste of the juicy kebabs are simply to die for. It is a little down from the mark during the peak hours but then this happens when you have to manage such a huge place. Dine in and take away are both available.
The foodies will crave for this place. Not just the famous biryani but everything here is amazing. Be prepared for the food-gasms when you visit this place.

To one part of the lake is the Lumbini Park and in the middle is this place which has a royal entrance with two lions guarding it just like many other ancient temples. on the banks of this lake are the Birla Temples all in white marble. The view of the lake becomes even better after evening with the white lights put up which make it look like a diamond necklace. You get the best views from the Tank Bund Road as well as the Neklace Road. You can cruise around here and enjoy a romantic lunch date on board only.
This lake is in the heart of the city.

Yarada Beach - Andhra Pradesh

This is one of the most beautiful beaches of the country and is in the Yarada Village of Andhra Pradesh. The beach is never really crowded mainly beacause it is quite a distance from the nearest city of Vizag. As you drive till the beach you will be able to enjoy the beauty of nature in the form of lush green sights and the beauty of the Bay of Bengal. As you reach the beach you will be welcomed with very clean crystal waters and golden sands. It is not advisable to swim in this area as the sea here is foerce and the slope of the beach is quite steep too. You can instead enjoy a picnic here or simply spend some quiet time and refresh yourself.
Beaches in Andhra Pradesh are seldom spoken of. Yarada is just 15km from Vishakhapatnam and is a glorious escape for those looking forward to enjoy a pristine, uninterrupted coastline. This golden sand beach is surrounded by lush green hills on three sides and by Bay of Bengal on the fourth side. Witnessing sunrise and sunset from this gleaming stretch of golden sand is a rewarding experience.

Srikalahasthi Temple - Andhra Pradesh

Located in a town with the same name as that of the temple, it is one of the prime temple dedicated to Lord Shiva in southern India. Trhis is the same place where Kannappa became ready to sacrifice both his eyes to stop the Shoiva idol from bleeding. In the final moment Lord Shiva himself appeared and stopped the incident and granted Kannappa mukti. This is one of the Panchabhootha Sthalams and is known for the Vayulinga oresent out here. The place is a few kilometers away from Tirupathi and was constructed in the 5th century. The outer temple was a 12th century addition by the Chola and the Vijayanagara kings. The temple is also known as "The Kailash of the South" and is famous for the Rahu and Ketu pujas performed here. The initial part of the Kalahasthi Temple which was constructed during the time of the Pallavas was built in their style of architecture but the later part is a fine blend of the Chola and Vijayanagara styles. This style diversity is another reason which makes this temple even more attractive.
This is the most sought pilgrims and is situated on the banks of Swarnamukhi River. Shiva Linga is worshipped here as Vayu Linga which means air. The reference is worshipping one of the five elements of the universe, Air.
