The Museum is primarily a historical one which would act as a repository of artifacts and documents relating to the history of people, events and institutions of the largest district of “Vizagapatam” of the erstwhile “Madras Presidency” of the pre-Independence era, which extended from Tuni in East Godavari district up to Ganjam in neighbouring Orissa.
The million year-old limestone Borra Caves, are situated in Ananthagiri Mandal, about 90 kms north of Vizag on the way to Araku valley. The caves, at a height of 1400 mts above sea level and occupying an area of 2 square kilometers are filled with fascinating stalagmite and stalactite formations of calcium deposits. The Gosthani river flows through the caves between the formations. These natural caves were discovered in1807 by William King George of the Geological Survey of India.
