Recording the history of Nellore


Pulicat Lake, Sulluru Peta

Pulicat lake is a bird watchers’ paradise. Water birds and other migratory birds like flamingos, painted storks, egrets, grey pelican, grey herons, pin tails, black winged stilts, shovelers, terns etc., visit this bird sanctuary. These migratory birds visit during winter as the lake offers food and protection from predators.

Pulicat lake is the second largest brakish water lagoon in India spread over two states of Andhra Pradesh and Tamilanadu adjacent to the Bay of Bengal. It extends over six hundred square kilometers in Andhra Pradesh covering the five Mandals of Tada, Sulluru peta, Doravari satram, Chittamur and Dugarajupatnam of SPSR Nellore District. The lake is well connected to the NH-5, and is only about 80 km from Chennai. It is also close to the Satish Dhawan Space Centre at SHAR (Sriharikota High Altitude Range).
