The caves are very beautiful and well designed. We reached late so could not get inside the complex. But just from the outside one can see that they were designed so well. There are a lot of monkeys in there which is not such a big issue but I felt that the caves have not been well maintained, I could... More

We stopped over in Vijaywada for 2 nights on our drive back from Puri. With just a few local attractions apart from shopping, we decided to check out Undavalli caves. The caves are about 12 Kms out of the city. The road is narrow but fairly good. The caves too are well maintained. It would be nice to have info... More

This is a multi level cave with a temple on first floor.Temple has statue of reclining Lord Vishnu. Different kind of cave. This is located very near to Vijayawada and about 22 kms from Guntur. Once you reach top level, you get very nice scenic views of the fields.

Lots of history here. This is a place where buddhist monks used to live centuries ago. Nothing much to see. You can complete the tour in almost 20 minutes. But worth the drive if you happen to be in VGA.

All the floors have been sculpted out of rock. There are sculptures of Hindu Gods including Ganesha, Vishnu and other deities. The most impressive piece is... More
