One of the busy domestic business road

Anne Besant Road, It begins at Andhra Patrika Centre near Railway Station and ends at Raghavaiah Park in Mahatma Gandhi Road, Once one of the busy domestic business roads. Now also having equally busy but earlier it's the only road for almost anything. Before developing M. G. Road it's the only road for any kind of shopping. Still many Garment shops, clothing, one of the parallel road Gold shops, and still many more ...Here in this road a small Lord Rama Temple is very familiar, The Besant Road association celebrates Sree Rama Navami in a Grand Manor. At that period the whole road filled with festive lighting and traditional shaded tents and celebrate for eleven days.

It's just a road of shopping area loaded

This road area is "located near to the temple street of Kanakadurga Devi's". This place has all shops of different things but mainly this road consists "stationery, wholesale and gold shops". I visited this street as on my trip to Vijayawada for the visiting of temple. But there is no any other attraction here noticable to say about this place, I recommend everyone to note this point when visiting to this place. "The place is best to shop book materials if needed" and street is very small in space..

Good for Shopping

It is very nice for shopping and it is also very good here. Cheap and best quality products available. It is very good place. Alla the varieties are available for ladies. The shopping is nice but the road is full rush every time. They have to maintain neat the surrounding areas and they have to clean the waste.

A area where we can get everything

The road is full of cloth stores, bakery, hotels, fish market, gold shops. We can get everything in this road. The road is full of crowd at evenings as most of the shopping will be done at that particular time. There will also be lot of chat vehicles to have evening snacks.
