Gandhi Hill



Gandhi Hill was earlier known as the 'Orr Hill'. It was named after Mahatma Gandhi and is famous for the Gandhi Stupa. Perched on top of the hill at an elevation of 500 feet above the main city of Vijayawada, the Gandhi Memorial Stupas were built in 1968 and till date rule the Vijayawada skyline. Raising to a height of 15.8 meter, the Gandhi Stupa is accompanied by six more stupas that made the first Gandhi Memorial of the country. The inspiring teachings of Mahatma Gandhi are inscribed on the stone slabs of the stupas.

The Gandhi Hill in Vijayawada houses the well stocked Gandhi Memorial Library and the city's very own planetarium. A light and show program is organized every evening after sundown relating stories from the life of the great leader, Mahatma Gandhi. The Gandhi Hill also provides an expansive view of the whole city of Vijayawada. The glittering lights of the city, the balmy breeze and the crowd together turn the place into one of the travel attractions of Vijayawada.
