It is a Excellent archeological site carved in hill. It is being managed by Archaeological Survey of India. A entry fee of Rs. 5 is charged. Idols of different gods have been carved on the walls of the cave, which are worth seeing.

Its a beautiful place its amazing and it blows your mind at how it was carved. The statue of lord Vishnu is beautiful! There is a concern... The statue of lord Vishnu needs to be preserved. People are doing Pooja which is okay but with a statue which is that old the Pooja needs to be different ... People are... More

I really enjoyed visiting this site, had not expected to be able to walk almost everywhere through the caves. The engravings and sculptures were fantastic. The initial plaque at the entrance gave most of the basic information, but we went with a friend who knew quite a bit about the site, and gave us a deeper appreciation for the history... More

Although quite close to the city, these caves are located in beautifully serene countryside. Access to several of the levels of the caves is via a series of easily negotiated steps, and these are very close to the entrance gate. The caves are surrounded by carvings, and each level has a terrace. On one terrace is a series of very... More

Nice place to visit in Vijayawada. This has lot of historic importance. There is Lord Vishnu Idol in the second floor of the cave. Nice location for photography.

Finding the route and the mode of travel to reach this place is important because by the name these caves are known to many but exact location is known to few only. This place is under the control of Indian Archaeology Department and you have to buy ticket at nominal price to visit this place. Green pastures are good at... More

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
