About this book

Nagarjunakonda, the famous Buddhist site of Andhra Pradesh drew attention of the people in early twenties of the twentieth century and had been the point of attraction of the archaeologists, historians and pilgrims since then. The archaeological importance of the site was first brought to the notice by R. Saraswati in 1926, after learning about interesting findings from the place by the local people. Explorations at different times had initially created an impression about the site as one Buddhist settlement that came up during the rule of the Ikshavakus. But the large scale excavations, that commenced in 1954 and continued till 1960, subsequent to the decision of turning the valley into a reservoir of the Nagarjunasagar Dam, revealed cultural sequences from the lower Paleolithic to Medieval times. It also unearthed the remains of the township of Vijaypuri that flourished in the third and the fourth centuries A.D.
