Orvakal Rock Garden, or Oravakallu Rock Garden, is a 1000 acre park with igneous rock formations between pools of water. It is located on NH-18 highway, outside the village of Orvakal, about 20km from Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh, southern India. There is a restaurant, boating, a cave museum and picnic areas on the site.Take a look at our Kurnool trip itinerary builder site to schedule your visit to Oravakallu Rock Garden and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
The park, with hiking paths that snake up a hill, was developed by the Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (APTDC). The content of the rocks is quartz and silica, a raw material for the glass industry. Several companies have petitioned for the ability to mine the area, which raises ecological concerns.
The park has been a site for film production, which has resulted in another ecological concern due to plaster of paris remnants left at the park after the movies were completed.

Nice place.. one time visit with kids. Well maintained and clean. Lots of different sized rocks, easy to reach as it is just beside highway. more »
Very interesting garden and great place to visit. Make sure the visit is timed early in the morning or in the second part of the day as it will be very hot and surrounded by rocks. It's a rock garden and seems to be a place outside India, though very much in India. Clean and well maintained. The place has a resort and seems to be a good place to stay. The restaurant however seems to not have options for foodies.
Need a picnic spot for family...go for it....Away from traffic life, it's a beauty to go and explore...Climb rocks and click pictures. Enjoy sunset midst of rocks Great place for children and adults
