  • Description

    Visakhapatnam was named after the God of spirit, Visakha. Once a small fishing village, it formed part of the Kalinga Empire, under Ashoka in 260 BC passing successively from the Andhra kings to Vengi to the Pallavas, Cholas and Gangas. In the 15th century, Visakhapatnam became part of the Vijayanagar Empire. It was transformed into a port town under the British. Now a bustling industrial and commercial city, it is the site of the country's largest shipbuilding yard. The most famous landmark at Visakhapatnam is the Dolphin's Nose, a rocky promontory in the port, 358 m high. The Ramakrishna Mission Beach, one of the loveliest on the east cost and Rishikonda, another beautiful beach, are popular with tourists.

KailasagiriKailasagiri is located on a hilltop and is a must to visiting place for all people visiting Vishakhapatnam. The charming hill on the seafront, affords a breath taking scenic view, especially towards Bheemunipatnam.
Borra cavesSituated at around 90 Km from the City by road, Borra caves at the Anantagiri Mandal are one of the best places to visit in Vizag. Borra Caves can also be reached from Araku Valley. It's a 29 Km journey on road from Araku Valley. Rock at Borra Caves date back to a million years. The Scenic splendor is all visible right from your train journey. Situated at 1400 m above sea level, Borra Caves were discovered by William King George of the Geological Survey of India in the year 1807. Gosthani River, which originates above the lime stone foundations, is given the legendary name 'GOSTHANI' as it resembles the udder of a Cow while flowing out of the caves.\r\nDeep in the caves, a Shivalingam and an idol of a Com (Kamadhenu) can be found. Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation colorfully illuminates the caves with electricity. There are mica mines in and around Borra village and it is believed that there are immense possibilities of mining precious stones like rubies here. A big project known as the Thalipudi Reservoir scheme is being constructed at cost of Rs 4.5 crore across the river Gosthami at Thatipudi.\r\n
Rishikonda BeachJust 8-km from Vishakhapatnam is the Rishikonda Beach, a golden, unspoilt beach, washed by the sun-warmed sea.
Ramakrishna BeachOne of the loveliest beaches on the East Coast, the Ramakrishna beach is a favorite resort for tourists visiting Vishakhapatnam.
Ananthagiri HillsAnantagiri is a breathtakingly beautiful resort sheltered in the lush undulating ranges of the Eastern Ghats. It is considered to be a perfect head off to get away from the blistering summer months. The Ananthagiri hills are on the way to Araku Valley and are famous for coffee plantations.
SimhachalamAbout 16-km from Vishakhapatnam is Simhachalam, famous for the temple of Sri Varaha Lakshminarasimha. Architecturally this ancient temple deserves high praise.
Indira Gandhi Zoological ParkThe Indira Gandhi Zoological Park is located in Vishakhapatnam amidst the scenic eastern ghats of India, flanked by hills on either sides and Bay of Bengal on the east.
The Araku valleyThe Araku valley, located on the Anatagiri hills at a height of 1,161 m from Sea Level is the place with the best natural scenery and greenery can be found. The Valley is located 112-Km from Visakhapatnam and has Waterfalls and streams, which give a pleasant feeling to the mind. The 17 tribes living in this valley wear colourful dresses and costumes and were untouched with modern civilisations. Their rhythmic songs and tribal dances, the Dhimsa dance in particular are just marvelous. The valley has Cottages and Resorts for tourists who visit here on a weeklong trip.
BheemunipatnamAbout 25-km from Vishakhapatnam is Bheemunipatnam. The most important aspect of interest at the place is the beach, which is perhaps matchless for its beauty all along the east coast.
The Submarine Museum - KurusuraVisakhapatnam has another Golden leaf in its feather and this Golden leaf has its specialty. The Submarine Museum - Kurusura being set up at the Rama Krishna Beach in Visakhapatnam has a specialty. The Submarine Museum was the first submarine tuned to a museum in the whole of Asia. INS Kusura is a Russian built submarine. It was built on Dec 18th 1969 and began its journey on Feb 20, 1970 via the Baltic Sea and reached Visakhapatnam on the 11th of May 1970. Since then INS Kusura was being used by the Indian Defence.\r\nINS Kusura was tuned to a Submarine Museum on 27th Feb 2001. It was earlier brough to the sands of Vizag beach from the sea. India's Premier Defence Lab - National Ship Design and Research Center (NSDRC), ONGC, Visakhapatnam Port Trust and other organisations have extended their helping hands in bringing the submarine to the sands of the beach. INS Kusura served for 31 years before its was decommissioned and retired from Defence services. Former Chief of Naval Staff Mr. Vijay Singh Sikhawat attended in the decommissioning program. The then Chief of Naval Staff Vice Admiral Vinod Pasricha, Visakhapatnam District Collector Mr. JSV Prasad, IAS, Mayor of Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation, Mrs. Rajana Ramani, were also present at the Inaugural function.\r\n
Dolphin's NoseThe remarkable landmark of this place is the Dolphin's Nose - a rocky promontory in the port, 358 meters high. The rock juts out into the sea, forming a headland on which is the lighthouse. This lighthouse has a beam that can be seen 65 km out at sea.
Vizag harbourVizag harbour is one of the natural harbors in the world. A temple, mosque and church are located on hills overlooking the harbour. The Vizag beaches, particularly the Ramakrishna Beach, are lovely and serene. The beaches are ideal for swimming and water sports. On the north of Vizag is this pretty cove, Lawson's Bay, ideal for swimming. Old Dutch museum and the drive to Bheemli are also very enjoyable.
The Borra Caves, also called Borra Guhalu in Telugu language ‘Borra’ means something that has bored into the ground and ‘guhalu’ means caves), are located on the East Coast of India, in the Ananthagiri hills of the Araku Valley (with hill ranges elevation varying from 800 m (2,624.7 ft) to 1,300 m (4,265.1 ft)) of the Visakhapatnam district in Andhra Pradesh. The caves, one of the largest in the country, at an elevation of about 705 m (2,313.0 ft), distinctly exhibit a variety of speleothems ranging in size and irregularly shaped stalactites and stalagmites. The caves are basically karstic limestone structures extending to a depth of 80 m (262.5 ft) (considered the deepest cave in India).
