Nagarjunakonda Museum information
Lonely Planet review
This thoughtfully laid-out island museum has Buddha statues and beautifully carved limestone slabs that once adorned stupas. Most depict scenes from the Buddha’s life. The reassembled monuments are arranged around the hilltop outside.
Launches (₹90, one hour) depart from Vijayapuri, on the banks of Nagarjuna Sagar, at 9.30am, 11.30am and 1.30pm, and stay for one hour. To do the place justice, take the morning launch out and the afternoon one back. Extra launches usually run on weekends and holidays.
