Chandavaram is located in Prakasam district,
50-km from Vijayawada.
It is a Buddhist site of great significance. Take a look at a unique
double terraced stupa on top of a hillock known as 'Singarakonda'
(beautiful hillock). It's probably the only one of its kind in elevation
in South India.
Excavations here have revealed more than 30 beautifully carved limestone panels once decorated the dome, drum and railing of the stupa. Apsidal and circular 'chaityagrihas', 'viharas' and several minor stupas are located on the hilltop.
Rail: Vijayawada is well connected
by rail with all the important places within and outside the state.
