Sprawling golden beaches, splendid monuments, ancient temples - these are but some of the tourist attractions of the city of valour, Visakhapatnam. Once ruled by the Andhra Kings of Vengi, the Cholas and the Gangas, this port city is bound to keep you enthralled. The Dolphin's Nose silhouetted against the sky on the beach, adjacent picturesque valleys with beautiful flora and fauna, nature camps and the Buddhist spots speak volumes of the great port city. Visakhapatnam is a cosy place, a place you can come home to!
Every December, from the third Friday to Sunday, an exclusive 3 day festival brings to life the arts, crafts, culture and cuisine of Visakhapatnam.
