Rock-cut cave temple Undavalli near Vijaywada is a tribute to the ingenuity of man and gives us a peep onto what he is capable of achieving even when faced by insurmountable hurdles. It is a four -storey monument that started taking shape sometime in 6-7 century A D. Because of being under royal patronage till 16th century A D, its upkeep is quite impressive and makes one wonder how architectural marvels can remain inviting even to the ordinary tourists. First floor houses Trinity and the second floor is the domain oe Anantasayana. Lord Vishnu resides on the third floor and the unfinished top floor was leaves us guessing. The location is wonderful and has a commanding view of the surroundings. The view from the top is really great and walking through the different floors gives an ethereal feeling. It takes us back into the passage of time and the figures cut in stone are mind-blowing. A bird sanctuary close by is another added attraction. Surrounded by a lake from all the sides it provides a great view of birds clustered on a rock. The innumerable white birds perched on the green foliage look enchanting.
