Andhra Pradesh


Andhra Pradesh combines the traditions of the Dravidians of the South and that of the Muslims who came from Western Asia several centuries ago. This state has a rich mineral resource.

Odisha and Madhya Pradesh surround it in the north, Maharastra and Karnataka in the west, Tamilnadu in the south and the Bay of Bengal in the east. It is the fifth largest state in the country and has a population, which is three times that of the country of Australia. Hyderabad, which is now called Cyberabad, is its capital.
