It is an important Buddhist site located at a distance of 50 km from Vijayawada.
It has a unique double terraced stupa on a hillock known as 'Singarakonda'
(beautiful hillock). Excavations at this site have revealed beautifully
carved limestone panels which would have supposedly decorated the dome,
drum and railings of the stupa. Besides, 'chaityagrihas'and 'viharas',
other minor stupas have also been found on the hilltop. Chandavaram is
easily accessible from Vijayawada by state buses and taxis.
