This is one of the best temples of Ananta Padmanabha Swamy built by Chalukyas in the 6th Century Ad. one would be thrilled to see the Idol in full. there is no jostling or pushing . You can have a peaceful darshan for as long as u want and touch the idol and pray. Very well taken care by ASI. it is a magnificient temple anyone visiting vijayawada or Guntur must visit and take the blessing of the Lord.

Caves have historical background and that makes it different. Maintenance of the place is very neat. The view from the top of caves is great as lush green farms with hillock background gives a cinematic view,

It is hardly away from Vijayawada city but still a refreshing historical place, as it is surrounded by lush green fields which increases the place beauty. It is en route to Amaravathi stupa. It is a archeological structure (temple) dated way back 4-5 AD with Jain structures. In second floor there is an ANANTHA PADMA NABHA swamy in lying posture (one you see in thiruvanthapuram).
Third floor has statues of Thambura and Naradha.
You can plan a trip to Amaravathi by taking a bike/car and via travel you can touch this spot as it takes only 1-2 hours of your time. Near by you have ISKON, SHiva kshethram also to include in your itinerary.
