Places to visit

  • Bobbili : Pedda-Puli, which translate to "the giant tiger," was the town's original name, honoring Sher Muhammad Khan, the Nawab of Srikakulam. In appreciation for his assistance during his southern expedition, he had given it to the Maharaja of Venkatgiri as a gift. The town's names evolved over time to become "Pebbuli," "Bebbuli," and eventually "Bobbili." One of the most significant occasions in the history of Andhra Pradesh was the Battle of Bobbili, which was fought in 1757 by the Vizianagaram Kings with the aid of the French General Marquis de Bussy. The glory of Bobbili's unfailing gallantry is a result of this conflict. Aside from this conflict, the town is renowned for the Venugopala Swami Temple and the Fort of Bobbili. The village is well-known for creating Veenas and the distinctive Bobbili VeenaSampradayam playing style, which was created over a period of three centuries.
