The Gandhi Hill is named after the father of our nation Mahatma Gandhi. It was earlier known as the Orr Hill. This is the first Gandhi Memorial with a huge stupa dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi.

The walls are beautifully inscribed with the teachings of the great man, Mahatma Gandhi.
The Gandhi Hill in Vijayawada has a fantastic library and the city’s only planetarium. The library is stocked with important documents and scriptures related to the life and times of Mahatma Gandhi.

Gandhi Hill Reviews & Ratings
Gud place for natural habitants
A nice public park with a huge Gandhi Memorial on the top of the hill. The place is near the main railway station of Vijayawada. One can easily view the entire railway station from the top. In fact, one can view the entire city from there. Though the place is not very big, it's a nice evening get away. It opens at 4 pm till 8:30 pm. There is also a toy train, which charges only Rs. 20/- and takes you around the hill. Overall, a nice place to spend an evening.
From here u can see beauty of hole Vijayawada
