|Brief on Andhra Pradesh :
The Nizam, who was known as one of the richest man in the world, ruled old princely state
of Hyderabad. Combining this old princely state of Hyderabad and Telugu speaking portion
of the former state of Madras created Andhra Pradesh. Once a major Buddhist centre in the
time of Ashoka's Andhra Pradesh, was later ruled by Chalukya's Chola kingdom & then by
Kakatiyas. After a short establishment by Muslim rulers from Delhi the Hindu Vijaynagar
Empire again ruled the area. After a long struggle for the power finally Qutb Shahi
dynasty was established in Hyderabad. They built one of the most magnificent forts in
India known as Golkonda fort. In 1687 a general of Mughal emperor Aurangzeb took over the
kingdom. They were called Nizam's of Hyderabad and they ruled the state right through
independence. Very rich Muslim heritage, Golkonda fort, ruins of Kakatiya kingdom at
Warangal, the Buddhist site of Nagarjunkonda & Amravati, beautiful temple of Kanaka
Durga at Vijaywada & famous temple complex of Tirupati are of the major tourist
