Sightseeing in Andhra Pradesh

Not many tourists take the time to discover the sightseeing treasures of Andhra Pradesh, daunted by its size and the fact that the major attractions are spread across squares of miles of tough terrain. But, if you chose carefully, Andhra Pradesh is as rewarding a destination as its more popular neighbours, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka.

Hyderabad is perhaps one of the most exciting cities in the south. Steeped in history and soaked in aromatic atmosphere, it is considered one of India’s most beautiful cities. Glimpses of its long and glorious history can be seen in the many monuments, mausoleums, palaces, museums and in the magnificent citadel of Golconda.

Visakhapatnam , the second largest city in the state used to be a truly beautiful port town, but hectic industrial activity has changed that somewhat. It still is an important destination for business travellers, particularly for those involved with chemicals, steel, fertilizer and oil refining. Also, it is a major city on the coastal road, which is probably the most beautiful route through the state. Vizag still has some of the most pristine beaches like Bhimli and Rishikonda - and they are definitely worth a visit!

Tirupathi – Tirumala is a very important pilgrimage for Hindus and one of the best places to visit in Andhra Pradesh. One of the wealthiest temples in India, it is visited by a record number of devotees everyday. Sitting atop a hill, commanding a beautiful view of the surrounding green and red countryside, the Tirupathi Tirumala Devasthanam is dedicated to Lord Venkateshwara, He whose covered eyes you’ll wonder about countless times as He blesses countless bus journeys and graces countless Tiffin joints. His powerful gaze would turn the recipient to cinder, hence the blindfold. Devotees come from far and near to seek the blessings of "Balaji".

Puttaparthi is the home of the Sathya Sai Baba Ashram, where devotees of the living saint arrive for spiritual rejuvenation and succour.
