Nagarjunasagar ( Andhra Pradesh , South India)

  • Nagarjunsagar, lying 150 kms from Hyderabad, has been named after the Buddhist seer Nagarjuna. It is a very famous and highly cherished tourist destination in Guntur region of Andhra Pradesh. The word 'sagar' is indicative of vast water reservoir. Known as Vijayapuri in the ancient times, Nagarjunasagar was an important Buddhist site. The huge reservoir built across river Krishna, submerging the old Nagarjunakonda Buddhist area, is named after the Buddhist saint Acharya Nagarjuna.

  • The ancient relics of Buddhist civilization dating back to the 3rd century have been preserved in a newly built museum on the island picturesquely situated in the middle of the river. Visitors are taken to this museum in a motor launch by the tourist department. The excavated Buddhist University has been re-erected on the same lines as the Abu Simbel effort in Egypt, at Anupu on the eastern bank of the reservoir. The museum has a model of the valley which has now been submerged.
