Vijayawada town is built by Pusapati Madhava Varma — Preceding unsigned comment added by 101.0.40.160 (talk) 12:30, 17 September 2013 (UTC) The other fact about Vijayawada is that it is the biggest business center , especially for farmers.

Article needs to be expanded[edit]

This article can be expanded on the lines followed by Hyderabad (India)" article. Sumanthk 10:06, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

I would request you to recheck about the boundaries that you gave.

Currently the city extends further to Budameru. Budameru river as you quoted is in actuality not a river, but an irrigation canal --DreamChaser 04:58, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Please go ahead and make the necessary corrections if you are sure about it. --(Sumanth|Talk) 05:58, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

External links[edit]

I have removed many links from the external links section. Please do not use Wikipedia for advertising. -- 02:08, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

I have removed them again, maybe we need to expand and lock it. -- mulpuru (talk) 05:18, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Proposal for changing the picture in the Info-box[edit]

Vijayawada station.jpg

I would like to propose for a change in the picture in the Info-box of the article.Because the picture there now is again stated in the section:Kondapalli Forest.Another reason for the given picture is that: Vijayawada is the home of South India's largest railway junction and is widely renowned for it's station.So we can display the station at the starting of the page. (Note:The proposal can be raised for an opposition within five days (before 13th December 2009). If no opposition is raised, the picture shall be on display on 13th December 2009.SharadbobTalkC 11:11, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

The proposal above is being implemented observing no opposition against the same.--SharadbobTalkC 12:18, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Copyright concerns[edit]

In February 2010, this article was quite rightly tagged for resemblance to the external website [1]. However, investigation suggests that in this case infringement is reversed. Consider the following paragraph in the article's lead:

Vijayawada...earlier known as Bezawada, is the third largest city in Andhra Pradesh, India, located on the banks of the Krishna River and bounded by the Indrakiladri Hills on the West and the Budameru River on the North. Vijayawada literally translates to "The Place of Victory". Its prominence as a major trading and business center has earned it the title of the "Business Capital of Andhra Pradesh”. Situated along the Chennai-Howrah and Chennai-Delhi Railway route, this is the 3rd largest railway junction in the world. The city is located in the Krishna District, about 275 kilometres (171 mi) from the state capital Hyderabad. Lying in the rich coastal delta of the state, the cuisine of Vijayawada is spicy and deliciously varied.

While this paragraph bears clear and strong resemblance to the external site, we can see evidence of its natural evolution here. When this article was established in 2004, it contained the following:

Vijayawada, the third largest city in Andhra Pradesh is located on the banks of the Krishna River, and is bounded by the lndrakiladri hills on the West and the Budameru river on the North. Situated along the Madras-Howrah and Madras-Delhi rail route, this is the largest railway junction of the South Central Railway. The city forms a part of the Krishna district, and is spread over an area of 58 sq. kms (urban area), with a population of 7 Lakhs (1991 census).

At that time, the external website was a domain for sale.

Evidence of natural evolution includes the sentence, "Its prominence as a major trading and business center has earned it the title of the "Business Capital of Andhra Pradesh”.", which is present on both pages, but came into our article in 2008, while the sentence "Lying in the rich coastal delta of the state, the cuisine of Vijayawada is spicy and deliciously varied" entered in March 2009 with a now-removed reference to mangoes and pickles.

Thank you very much to the contributor who noted the concern. It's important to check these situations out. The Wikimedia Foundation takes copyright matters very seriously, and we always need to verify that we are not copying content when such situations occur. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 18:24, 13 February 2010 (UTC)


in this article   you mentioned 'vijayawada is third biggest juntion in  asia ' at one palce and  "vijayawada is third bigest railway junction in the world"  at anoher place. which was correc?  —Preceding unsigned comment added by 118.94.141.181 (talk) 16:13, 29 May 2010 (UTC) 

Change to the ranking of the railway junction[edit]

The statement that the railway junction in Vijayawada is the busiest in India and the biggest in Asia could be inaccurate. The author did not quote any article either.

This line in the article is being modified to address it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Venkatarv (talkcontribs) 07:56, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Change the picture in the main article page to a collage[edit]

This post is to propose using a collage picture for Vijayawada article. Now most large cities have a collage picture on wikipedia and I feel we should use one for Vijayawada also. The discussion will be open until 17th April 2011 and if no one has objections using the below picture, it will be uploaded to the main article page in place of the current one.

Vijayawada is referred to as the political capital?[edit]

As one born and brought up in Vijayawada, I'm surprised at the claim that it is referred to as the political capital of AP. Is there a citation? If one cannot be found, this assertion should be removed. Hyderabad is the political capital of AP, Vijayawada is colloquially called the business capital of the state. It is a hub of commerce, to be precise.

Seeing no objection, I've made the change. 199.68.38.6 (talk) 18:46, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Too many images[edit]

This article has too many images, some should be erased in order to make the content more visually attractive and in harmony with the wikipedian style. The are so many images that the text is hard to follow.Loupiotte (talk) 20:46, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
