wonder then that it is one of the most frequented spots for school
picnics. This beautifully laid out garden also houses two museums
the A P State Archaelogical Museum and the Health Museum, a park
where kids can play, a mini school (Jawahar Bal Bhavan) for children
to learn fine arts, and an auditorium (the Indira Gandhi
Auditorium). The Jubilee Hall, the Lalitha Kala Thoranam (an
open-air theater which is a venue for many film festivals, fashion
shows and beauty pageants), the building of the Department of
Horticulture and a mosque are the other fascinating places in the
Beside this garden the beautiful white structure is the Andhra
Pradesh Assembly building with green lawns. In 1985 a New
Legislative Assembly hall was inagurated by the then Prime Minister
of India Late Sri. Rajiv Gandhi.
Recently the government has added a huge statue of Mahatma Gandhi
sitting in the praying posture looks peaceful for all. The statue
adds to the beauty of the park.
