Vijayawada ! The city of Victory! Victory for whom? Of what kind?? And over whom??? And answers to the questions "Where, When and How" unfolds the origin, growth and glory of this great flourishing city, encircled by a cluster of huge high hills; sanctified by the association of divinities; doused by the sacred waters of river Krishna, and once famous as a renowned seat of administration of powerful monarchs; sublime retreat of sages, literary luminaries and outstanding artistes; a remarkable kshetra of religious catholicity, with world's major religions, like Jainism and Buddhism flourishing side by side with Hinduism; the cradle of Andhra Culture; the splendid stadium of the highest celestials to demonstrating their sports, like Lord Siva bidding the hills to give way to river Krishna through tunnels; his fighting mock-battle against Arjuna and showering gold on a King Madhava for holding scales even; Kanaka Durga killing Sumbha Nisumbhas; imperial monarchs installing Sivalingas and warrior heroes doing penance... and NOW the thriving centre of ever-growing industry; the reputed rice-bowl of the South, the inexhaustible store-house of food products, a focal point of socio-economic activity, the enviable haven of literary activity, the ever expanding biggest railway junction of the entire South; the exemplary forum of literary banquets, the ever hot centre of animating political activity, and equally ever brisk centre of religio-spiritual-activities enamating from the holy shrines, like Kanakadurga Aalayam, Malleswara Alayam, Vijayeswara Alayam etc. making it a glorious city, excelling any metropolitan city of the Navabharat.
