There is not much to view around Vijayawada - mainly the temples which it is famous for. So it was good to have something different for a change. The caves were a welcome relief - and the welcome surprise was the huge rock-carved deity of sri ranganatha swamy in the caves. The Krishna canal and generally green surroundings made it... More

Well, if you are expecting some very beautiful /colorful something this place is not for you. Even the journey to the cave is not so good. But if you like historical sculptures it is a paradise for you.I must say govt should take proper step to maintain this.

One can look at other reviews for basic info. It is a buddhist site and it used to be clearly mentioned on the information board in the past. Now, that information is let to rust (it used to be on a iron sheet, and painted), and now it is being treated and told as a vaishnavite place, with the sleeping... More

The caves dating back to 1st or 2nd century have been preserved well. The carving of Ananthapadmanabha Swamy is wonderful. The pancha rishis add a lot of fervor. The entire structure has been carved out of a single huge boulder.

Caves from the 2nd century, well maintained by ASI. Nice views from atop the caves. Also, this has great statues of the sleeping Vishnu inside the caves.

They are very small when compared to Badami, but the cave architecture is great...The sleeping Vishnu ( Padmanabhswamy) and Ganesh ( Vigneshwar) are amazing statures. They are hidden treasures...a must watch.
