Guide for booking hotels in Vijayawada:
Vijayawada (formerly Bezawada), the cultural capital of Andhra Pradesh, is a fusion of the old and new world. The city is nestled on the banks of the Krishna River and is a host of temples, caves and historical monuments and the air echoes with the clanking of temple bells mixed with the cacophony of busy streets. For a unique and unforgettable experience, stay in one of the resorts on Bhavani Island.
