With a coastline that stretches 927 kilometers, the longest in India, Andhra Pradesh is home to the famous Tirupati temple and the Srisailam Mallikarjuneswar Temple. After recently being renamed as Seemandhra after the state got split into two- Telengana and Seemandhra, the state retained the most popular tourist destinations like the Belum caves, Nagarjuna Konda, Borra caves, and Pulicat Lake. Historically the state was home to the Vijayanagara dynasty which was responsible for the Srisailam and Lepakshi temples. There is a lot of Buddhist influence that can be seen around the state in centers like Dhulikatta, Bavikonda, Thotlakonda, Amravati, and Nagarjuna Konda. The best time to visit would be from October to April. The major airports are in Vijayawada and Vishakapatnam.
