A must visit place whom so ever comes to Viskhapatnam. Beauty of mother nature is at its best during rainy season. A best place for photographs and capture the best view of the city.

Strategically located hilltop acting as a sentinel to ships. The lighthouse above with details of other such lighthouses elsewhere along the coast offers interesting information.

You will get a nice view of the city from the top. The hill is in the shape of a nose of a dolphin and for that reason the name is dolphin nose,
