A historically important pilgrimage centre with a rich collection of antique Buddhist sculpture belongs to the 3rd to 12th century BC, Amaravati is located on the banks of the Krishna river. Anciently known Dhanyakataka, Amaravati is a major Buddhist worship place in India.

One of the main attractions is the 2000-year old stupa, renowned for the marble-surfaced dome and carved pillars. Carvings depicting the life and teachings of the Buddha adorn the stupa.

Amaravati museum with ancient collections and Amareswara Temple are some other draw. The temple is assumed to be one among the five Pancharama temples. Amaravati museum showcases the archaeological materials from other Buddhist places in Andhra Pradesh, such as gold flowers, a gold necklace and relic-caskets with bone-relics.
