Nagarjunakonda is an old Buddhist town that is located in the Guntur District of the State of Andhra Pradesh. Nagarjunakonda is known for its many Buddhist sites and the Nagarjunakonda Dam is one of the importance places to visit. Mahayana Buddhism has spread in the area due to a master called Nagarjuna. The place was a center of learning and it attracted students from places such as China, Sri Lanka and Bengal. Many of the sites that are found in the area were submerged and they were later excavated. The items that were dug up were later transferred to a hill which became an island in the dam.

Nagarjunakonda Dam is a masonry dam and it is one of the tallest dams in the world. The dam is also the place where the remains of some Buddhist structures were excavated and later transferred to the museum. Some of the interesting sites in the area are a fort that was built during the 14th century and many temples. The museum is constructed in the shape of a Vihara and is one of the most interesting places in the area. There is a ruined Buddha statue that is located in the museum and it is one of the prime attractions of the museum.
