About Bojjannakonda

Bojjannakonda is situated 45 kilometers away from Vishakhapatnam. It is a historical monument having a connection with three phases of the Buddhism period. The site date backs to the 4th and 9th century. Standing on the top of the hills, you get a panoramic view of the lush green fields in the vicinity. Bojjannakonda was earlier known as BuddhuniKonda, which means ‘Hill of Buddha.' It is an exquisite establishment of Buddhist Era having rock-cut caves, monasteries, monolithic stupas, and chaityas. It is declared as the heritage site by UNESCO. BojjanaKonda houses a large rock-cut platform of MahaStupa. It is surrounded by a large number of monolithic stupas made of bricks and rocks. Recently the archaeologists have found the image of Goddess Hariti at the foot of the hillock. There are six rock-cut caves at Bojjannakonda. Each has a statue of Buddha and his attendant monks. Alexander Rea explored the site in 1907-08 and found numerous rare antiques, which include terracotta inscribed tablets, pottery, seals, gold coins belonging to the Gupta dynasty and several coppers and lead coins. A large number of visitors from all over India visit the place on the occasion of Vaisakha Pournami.
