Vijayawada, the land of Victory, is a popular tourist destination in Andhra Pradesh with a number of tourists visiting the famous Kanaka Durga temple here. In addition to the temple, there are a number of other attractions in Vijayawada worth visiting. Gandhi Hill, the first of its kind in the country is one such tourist spot, attracting huge crowds every day.
Gandhi Hill, the first Gandhi memorial in India on a hillock, is a major tourist spot in Vijayawada. Situated at a height of 500 ft, this Gandhi memorial with seven stupas was constructed to pay tribute to the Father of the Nation. The 52 ft tall Gandhi stupa is the major attraction here, unveiled by Dr. Zakir Hussain, the then President of India, on 6th October 1968. Gandhi Memorial Library, with good collection of books; a Sound and Light show, depicting the life of Mahatma Gandhi; and a planetarium are other attractions here. A toy train ride around the hill is a favorite among the kids. In addition, the inscriptions of Gandhi’s teachings on stone slabs are truly inspiring. The panoramic view of the Vijayawada city as seen from the Gandhi Hill is an added attraction here.
Gandhi Hill is the perfect place to pay homage to the great leader of India, Mahatma Gandhi. One feels pride when they visit this place reminding them of glory of India brought by one man with his principle of nonviolence. The beautiful view of the Vijayawada city with glittering lights, cool breeze and scenic landscape makes it a must visit tourist spot. A perfect blend of information, entertainment and scenic view; a visit to Gandhi Hill should not be missed by anyone.
