The official language of Andra Pradesh is Telugu, which is highly influenced by Sanskrit. The dance styles in the State are based on the standard treatises - Abhinaya Darpana and Bharatarnava of Nandikeshwara, which is sub-divided into Nattuva Mala and Natya Mala.

Culture and Traditions
The racial, cultural and linguistic similarity among four major states makes visitors perceive that these states together simply as 'south India'. Though the states are seemingly similar but there exists variations in terms of culture, traditions, festivals, and scenery.

Pondicherry and Lakshadweep are again quite different from the four traditional States - Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Kerala. The dominating feature of southern culture are the magnificent temples and their architecture that goes back to the 6th century, the unaltered traditions of food, religion and lifestyle, handicrafts, heritage of sandalwood, silk, rosewood and brass, and classical dance and music.
