Nagarjunakonda Travel Guide

Nagarjunakonda is an island in the middle of the Nagarjunasagar Lake, surrounded by the town of Nagarjunasagar. Take a walk back into the past here in Nagarjunakonda, an impressive heritage city of India. Once an important Buddhist site, it was called Vijayapuri. Its current name of Nagarjunakonda is derived from a Buddhist saint, Acharya Nagarjuna who was the founding father of Mahayana Buddhism.

From being a holy place for Buddhists to being a pilgrimage for the pundits of development, Nagarjunakonda has been the focus of interest - and a quick getaway from Hyderabad.

A pilgrimage place for Buddhist- Nagarjunakonda is a unique island-museum amidst picturesque natural surrounding. A massive dam, Ethipothala Waterfall, Srisailam wildlife reserve and a museum with rare antiques make a visit to Nagarjunakonda a real treat.
