Overall Guide : I like to live in Kurnool. we can find everything in Kurnool only no need to go beyond it like college, hospitals, schools. There are so many temples in kurnool especially sai baba temple near to the bank of tungabadra.... more Kurnool is not so expensive. Kurnool does not have much to offer to the tourists there are only few places, which are worth watching.
