Each city has its set of famous places that are a must-visit by tourists. More than attracting tourists, these iconic spots capture the true essence of the place. Vizag, the City of Destiny, is widely regarded as one of the most picturesque places to visit for being home to a number of tourist attractions. While the place is synonymous with its beaches, Vizag has more to its name.
From scenic viewpoints to popular food stalls, here is the list of iconic places in Vizag that are a must-visit to catch the vibe of the place.
Ramanaidu Studios hilltop
Though Ramanaidu Studios is majorly known as a tourist attraction that can be visited once or twice, it has become a popular hangout spot for the youth of the city in recent times. Owing to the Bean Board coffee shop situated right on the top and the fantastic view from there, the place has bloomed into a hub for youngsters. The breathtaking view of the vast blue Bay of Bengal is worth travelling all the way. If you are new to Vizag and haven’t tasted this refreshing experience, you are surely missing out on a lot. Sip a cup of freshly-brewed coffee and enjoy nature’s beauty around the Ramanaidu Studios.
Ross Hill Chapel
A white edifice atop a hill, the Ross Hill chapel or locally called the ‘Mary Maatha Gudi’, is one of the most iconic places that truly captures the essence of Vizag. This peaceful spot is a stress buster with a view of the blue beach on one side and the urban sprawl on the other. The Ross Hill Chapel also has a historical significance to the City of Destiny as its origins date back to 1864.
