Bojjannakonda Overview
A part of two Buddhist rock-cut caves situated on adjacent hillocks, Bojjanakonda is a religiously, culturally and historically significant site in the city of Vizag.Sankaram, a village located near the site acts as the gateway of entrance to these rock cut caves.

Between the 4th and 9th century AD, three phases of Buddhism called Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana flourished in Sankaram, and the caves were built during this time only. The Bojjanakonda is a locally pronounced version of the name buddha Konda.

Both the rock-cut caves are surrounded by colossal paddy fields that lend a picturesque appeal to this place. Several monolithic stupas, rock-cut caves and monasteries are characteristic features of these caves. The Bojjannakonda is the eastern hill and contains a brick constructed dome above the Maha Stupa in addition to several monoliths.

If you are curious about the religious history and local customs of Vizag, this place should be on your itinerary.
