There are many cities all over India which do not get much coverage by the media or even residents.

There is Bhubaneshwar - a pleasant and well planned city. But how often do we find photos of this city except for its temples? There is Jamshedpur, Rourkela, Durgapur, Haldia, Bhillai, Bokaro and numerous small towns and townships which are home to India's middle class. But photographic info about them is either of bad quality or none.

Suncity..............I knew Vizag was scenically beautiful. But that 2nd image you posted just caught me by surprise as well. It just shows how much developed a tertiary metros can be. If Delhi, Mumbai, Calcutta, Chennai are 4 main metros & Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Trivandrum, kanpur etc are secondary metros. rarely a cities like Vizag, Jammu tawi, cochin gets mentioned unless there is a discussion regarding some fishing "village". I must say these tiertiary cities are way way far from typical indian villages.
Hindustani - you had posted some great pics of Vizag. I believe we lost them during the server upgrade. There have been reports of missing posts.

So please repost them.
Yes, Vizag = Visakhapatnam.

Thank You very much for those pics.

Although i live in Mumbai,Vizag is my hometown.Haven't been there since July 2003.

Its one of the most underrated cities in India.

Keep up the good work :)

P.S. As you can see,this is my first post.Hi to everyone here.:wave:
Nice pics LuckyStreak!
Luckystreak - great pics as usual!!!!

I thought JNPT (Navi Mumbai) was the number one in container traffic and was ranked number 32 in the world.

Vizag was number one in terms of tons output in India.
nik said:
BTW Vizag port has the highest container traffic in India. It is operated by Dubai Ports World, the one that handles Cochin port too.
Thanx Streak, for both the responses.

I too want to upload some good pics of Vizag. But, could anyone tell me how can I upload images onto this forum?
Vizag is ranked first among the Indian Major Ports in terms of annual cargo throughput. The cargo throughput handled in 2005-06 was 55 million tonnes.
Kolkata (Calcutta-Haldia) is second with 53 million tonnes, Chennai (Madras) is third with 47 million tonnes, Kandla comes fourth with 45 million tonnes and Mumbai is fifth at 44 million tonnes.


However in terms of container traffic JNPT in Navi Mumbai (New Bombay) is number one in India. The total container traffic handled at JNPT during the calendar year 2005 was 2.58 million TEUs (1.27 million TEUs at JNPCT and 1.31 million TEUs at NSICT).

Chennai Container Terminal is probably second with a throughput of 700,107 TEUs for the calendar year 2005.
