Here we are going to discuss about some heritage sites of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana recommended by Archaeological Survey of India. But one might wonder, suddenly why we are concentrating on Archaeological sites? To know the importance of the same, first you have to understand what is Archaeology.
Archaeology is the study of human activity through the recovery and analysis of material culture. The objects, called artifacts can be as small as button or as large as a building. These objects are the connectivity between our past and the present. Archaeological investigations are the sole source of knowledge of our ancient and extinct culture.
