Installed almost two decades ago by the N T Rama Rao government, these statues of the greatest and best talent of Andhra Pradesh, span centuries of brilliant lives. Some of the best poets in Telugu literature, the most prolific writers and the most able administrators aiding the most magnanimous kings… these are profiles of excellence set forever in the form of these inanimate statues.

In spite of concerted efforts to extract official records on the statues, we failed in doing so. Hence, the information you see here is a compilation from a variety of sources.
