The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.
Kondapalli Fort is a wonderful tourist attraction located in a small village called Kondapalli. It is only at a distance of 16 km from Vijayawada city. This village is famous for its wonderful toys which are made from light-weight wood. The toys have a great demand in both national and international markets.
Kondapalli Fort was built on a hill in the 14th century by King Krishna Deva Raya. This three-storied magnificent structure is a testimony to the glory of the royal era. The fort witnessed several wars over the centuries. Later when Kondapalli came under the rule of the Qutub Shahis, the fort was renovated in a different style.
This picturesque fort has three successive entry gates. The first and the main entrance gate is called the Dargha Darwaja which was named after the dargah of Gulab Shah who was killed in the battle fought at the fort. It was built from a single block of granite. It is 3.7 m wide and 4.6 m high.
The must-see attractions of Kondapalli Fort are:
Several stalls inside the fort sell the popular and beautiful Kondapalli toys available in vibrant colors. The toys are painted with vegetable dyes. The toys are available in various designs such as Dasavatarams (Ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu), elephant with Ambari, palanquin-bearers carrying bride and bride-groom, toddy tapper, set of village craftsmen, and animals.
