Pavuralakonda
 

Pavuralakonda or Narasimhaswamy Konda is located to the west of Bhimli or Bheemunipatnam which is about 24 km. from Vizag. This hillock also called 'hill of pigeons', covering an area of 10 to 12 acres, is at a height of 168mts above sea level. Excavations of the site believed to be dated between 3rd C. B.C. and 2nd C. A.D, revealed nearly 14-16 rock-cut troughs or cisterns used for collecting rainwater, foundations of viharas, with cells and common verandah, circular chaityagrihas, votive stupas, halls etc. The river Gosthani which flows nearby Pavuralakonda served as navigation canal for inland trade in the early centuries of the Christian era.
