Jaggayapetta
 

It is a town 77km northwest of Vijayawada on NH9. It was once an important Buddhist centre. Numerous excavations have brought to light a rich Buddhist heritage which include stupas made completely out of bricks and earth. Maha Chaitya is what the stupa is referred to in the 3C-4C inscriptions and consists of a ruined pillared hall immediately south-east, and a few inconspicuous mounds in the vicinity. Some of the finds of the excavation have found their way to Government Museum, Madras. There are frequent buses from Vijayawada to Jaggayapetta and one can also avail private transport.
