  • Just a beautiful, peaceful place. The caves are amazing. The place is 6km south west from Vijayawada. It is a beautiful monolithic example of Indian rock cut architecture. Beautiful views of farm land...  more »

  • Old the rock cut temple with a few beautiful images intact. Watch out for monkeys who steal food. In the bottom floor of the four layers of life a number of bats. For seniors it is hard to climb to the top. For foreigners is the entrance fee increased to 200 rupees. You can go there by bus 301 from the bus station. The bus stops in front of the entrance.

  • Very small place to visit, only attraction is the big statue of Anantha padmanabha swamy.
  • All over only The Statue of PADMANABHA SWAMY is good. And the maintenance is not good.
  • This place is good for photography and place is full of monkey's and one vishnu Idol sleeping inside cave is highlight for this place along with bat's.....!!!! I am satisfied with this place..
  • Nice place to know about history in India It's a simple monolithic structure contructed from one mountain u can find different rooms and instruments saints welcoming you good atmosphere near and around
  • Its Historical and a Mythical artifact, one building says many stories, for any spirituality of any religion , this is the place to start exploring human evolution. I couldnt write anything more than this
