These caves with historic significance is a must place to visit around vijayawada as it is said that there had a temple of AnantaPadmanabha swamy same like that of tiruvanantapuram and these days yes they are maintained well but the roads built towards the caves from the village are terrible

In spite of paucity of time decided to visit Undavalli as it was close to the town. The place is well maintained and seeps with history. However was pained to see people deface the walls by etching their names. Seemed to be a lovers paradise. Hats off to the artisans of the past for making a shelter which was cool... More

Nice vintage site. Good for photography. Open till sunset. After 17:30 you need to request the guys to let you in. Ticket price rs5 for Indian nationals. Rs100 for foreign nationals. 30 mins are enough to check out the whole place. Best time to visit is sunset around 17:00 to see the lush greenery and orange sky. Take your camera.... More
