The humble city in the state of Andhra Pradesh, Vijayawada is surrounded by the marvels of nature. The place is situated on the banks of holy river Krishna and is located amidst the Indrakeeladri hills on the west and Budameru river on the north. This picturesque city is not only known for its scenic beauty including blooming flowers and trees laden with scrumptious and delicious fruits but it is also known for the archaic buildings and monuments contributing to the rich historical significance of the place. Some of the significant places such as Kondapalli fort, Undavalli caves, and Gandhi Stupa are the ones which highlight the beauty of a Vijayawada.
