Introducing Vijayawada

Vijayawada is a busy city and an important port, but it’s also intersected by canals, lined with ghats and ringed by fields of rice and palm. The surrounding area is intensely lush and green.

Vijayawada is low on sights, but it has an important Durga temple and is considered by many to be the heart of Andhra culture and language. It's a good base for visiting the area's important Buddhist sites.
