(pic-2) INS KURSURA submarine museum on beach side of R.K.Puram beach Road. It is an excellent musuem, worth visiting.

I  visited the museums on either side of RK Beach road.

One can get excellent breeze just walking down the RK Beach Road.

I visited the Kailasagiri park at hilltop too on this trip.

Kailasagiri is a hilltop tourist spot in the city of Vishakapatnam in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. The park was developed by the Vishakapatnam Metropolitan Region Development Authority (VMRDA) and comprises of 380 acres of land covered with flora and tropical trees. The hill, at 173 metres (568 ft), overlooks the city of Vishakhapatnam.

The Government of Andhra Pradesh awarded Kailasagiri as its “Best Tourist Spot” in 2003. On average, around three hundred thousand Indian and foreign tourists visit the park every year. To protect the environment, VMRDA has declared the hill a plastic-free zone.

Cable car connects to the top of the hill, the first of its kind in Andhra Pradesh. One can also come down from Kailasagiri to the beach location by road; there is also a train connecting these locations for those who are afraid of cable car rides.
I and my wife had a relaxed day at Vishakapatnam (Vizag) visiting Kailasagiri, the R K Beach at Vizag and some of the museums worth visiting on the R K Beach.

Posting some pictures I took at Kailasagiri park, the INS KURSURA submarine museum, TU (Russia) Aircraft museum at R K Beach (Ramakrishna Beach).


By the way, there are entry fees to visit the museums and to ride either the cable car or train from Kailasagiri to beach location. Money well spent though if the aim is to spend a relaxed day at Vishakapatnam (Vizag.)

Excellent. Your post brought me tears due to homesickness. I lived in Vizag on the beach road halfway between the submarine and Novotel hotel. Thanks for posting this.

It seems to have changed a lot from the days when it was a old sleepy port way back in 1980s, the last I remember having been there. I don’t think Kailasgiri park was there then. From the pictures itself it looks like a city transformed.
