After our morning tiffin we continued our ride and started to Guntupalli Group of Buddhist Monuments which is around 2 hours ride from Tanuku.
Guntupalli Caves are remnants of what must have, once upon a time, been a flourishing Buddhist centre. There are rock cut caves, monasteries, Stupas and Chaityas belonging to the 2nd-3rd Centuries B.C.,
At the ticket counter, we were told the site would be closed by 5 PM and we had about 45 minutes to visit the place.
Surrounded by hills on all sides, the Buddhist centre and rock cut caves are located on cliffs on the face of the hills.
More than the caves what really excited me is the ride and route which led to the caves.
Surrounded with farms , palms, eucalyptus it's a pleasant ride and as Shrimp culture flourishes in Andhra Pradesh, shrimp farms is a common and never seen before view
