Amaravathi City Travel Guide

Amaravati, Andhra Pradesh: Amaravati is an ancient city, locally known as Dipaldinne or 'Hill of Lamps', is a small town near Guntur. It is situated on the banks of river Krishna in the state of Andhra Pradesh in India. The site of Amaravati is just next to a place called Dharanikota, also called as Dhanyakataka (Town of Paddy). It was the capital of the Satavahana Kings- the first kings of Andhra, during 1st to 3rd century AD. This place is famous for the temple of Lord Siva and hence it is also known as 'punyakshetra' (A holy place). 

The presence of River Krishna makes the place even more sacred. This beautiful place is also a famous Buddhist pilgrimage all over the world as there are Buddhist sculptures and giant Maha Stupas. Amaravati is popular for the Amareshwara temple, a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. There is also a Buddha Stupa that is famous all over the world. 

Also, an Archaeological museum depicts some of the sculptures found at Amaravati Stupas, coins of gold, silver and lead used during historic days.
