South India & Kerala - Andhra Pradesh (Chapter)
This is the Andhra Pradesh chapter from Lonely Planet’s South India & Kerala guidebook.
Andhra Pradesh doesn’t have the flashiness of Rajasthan, but be prepared to dig for the jew-els; to wend through paddy fields and 500-year-old urban markets, to climb towering smooth-granite hills, and to feel the liberating uncertainty of being off the tourist trail.
- imagine a life of riches, pleasure gardens and poetry in Hyderabad’s many palaces and royal structures
- soak up centuries-old ambience at Hyderabad’s colourful Laad Bazaar
- absorb the meditative vibrations of monks past at Sankaram, Bavikonda and Thotlakonda, and Guntupalli, destinations on a 2300-year-old monastic trail
- restaurants & accommodation
