About Vijayawada :
The third largest city in Andhra Pradesh, Vijayawada also know as
Bezawada, is bordered by the scenic Indrakiladri Hills on the west and
the Budameru River on the north. Located at a distance of about 275 km
from the state capital, this enchanting city has emerged as a major
tourist, trading and business center.
Vijayawada translates to mean "place of victory". According to the
legends, Arjuna performed penance on these hills to appease Lord Shiva,
who appeared before him and bestowed him with the prized weapon 'Pasupathasthra'.
Also Goddess Durga is believed to have rested here after slaying the
wicked demon Mahishasura in a fierce battle. The famous Kanaka Durga
shrine located on top of the hills and overlooking river Krishna, is
thronged by hundreds of devotees daily.
The impressive Prakasam Barrage, which is 1223.5 mt long across the
river Krishna has created a beautiful reservoir lake, and is also
responsible for irrigating lakhs of acres of land. Vijayawada is also
home to some of the best varieties of mango, which are available here in
plenty during the summer months. The Kondapalli village, which is
located close to the city is a favourite picnic spot, and home to the
famous light weight Kondapalli toys, painted in vibrant colours.
One need not worry about accommodation in Vijayawada, as the city has a
wide range of hotels to suit any budget.
