Undavalli Caves

Associated with the Vishnukundana Kings of the 5th- 7th century, these are excellent examples of rock- cut architecture in the Guntur district. These are monolithic caves just on the banks of the Krishna River and these date back to the 4th and 5th centuries. The largest of these caves is is a four storey one with a huge monolithic granite statue of Lord Vishnu in a reclining position. The other caves are also dedicated to the Lords Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Since, this was the time of the Gupta Empire and Buddhism was prevalent in cave arts, you will also find it out here. The caves are all in the shapes of Buddhist viharas and expert carvings are done inside each one of these.
Undavalli caves are referred to as a collection of beautiful caves. We all know about famous caves like Ajanta, Ellora & Elephant Caves. Some Prehistoric caves with rock paintings like Bhimbetka. However, Undavalli caves are one of the lesser-known Caves in Vijaywada, Andrapradesh.
