|States of India — Andhra Pradesh|
|Andhra Pradesh is one of the oldest state of India and was created by combining the old princely state of Hyderabad with the Telgu-speaking portions of the former state of Madras.
Most of this large state stands on the high Deccan plateau, sloping down to the low -lying coastal region to the east where the mighty Godavri and Krishna rivers meet Bay of Bengal in wide deltas. The capital Hyderabad, is naturally a magnet for its Muslim heritage, as well as the nearby Golconda Fort and Qutb Shahi tombs .and also there are the impressive ruins of Kakatiya kingdom at Warangal, commented on by Marco Polo, and the Buddhist sites of Nagarjunakonda and Amaravathi, as well as the beautiful Kanaka Durga Temple at Vijayawada, and the famous temple complex of Tirumala in the state’s extreme south east.
