  • The Ramoji Film City is located about 35 kilometers from the Hyderabad city. The studio lives upto its name of a "city" as it is spread over a vast area of around 3000 acres. 

  • You feel as if you have entered a new city all together with hills, gardens, lakes, and at the same time flanked with spotless modern buildings. 

  • The Ramoji Film City doubles both as a tourist attraction and major film-making facility. 

  • The city looks like the product of an alliance between the famous magician P.C. Sorkar and Vishwakarma, the God of Architecture and Engineering. It is India's answer to the Universal Studios in Hollywood, in every aspect. 
  • It is a place where realism obtains all the traits of enchantment and inconceivable.
  • Today, it is the filmmakers' first choice as it is a single-window, press-button facility that opens up an unlimited arena of creativity for every major and minor aspect of film production.


  • It is the world’s largest integrated film studio cum theme park, at nearly 3,000 acres (8 km²). 
  • It is also one of Asia’s most popular tourism and recreation centres. Recently, it has made its way to the Guinness Book of World Records for being the largest film studio in the world.  
  • Opened in 1996, it is about 20 min. drive from Hyderabad on Vijayawada Highway.



  • The Lalitha Kala Thoranam, an open-air theater, has been a venue for many film festivals, fashion shows and beauty pageants. 
  • The building of the Department of Horticulture and an ancient mosque are among other fascinating places in the premises. 

  • A stunningly beautiful and immense white structure located in the Public Garden, is the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly. 
  • The white structure looks simply heavenly, located amidst the sprawling green lawns. In 1985 a New Legislative Assembly hall was inaugurated by the then Prime Minister of India, Late Sri. Rajiv Gandhi. 
  • The state government has recently added a huge statue of the Father of Nation, Mahatma Gandhi in the Garden. Sitting in a praying posture, the statue looks peacefully serene and adds to the beauty of the Garden.
