Amaravathi Mahachaitya is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Amaravathi. Constructed during the late Mauryan era, this ruined Buddhist monument was actually a Buddhist stupa, which housed the relics of great Buddhist scholars and thinkers.
Although most of the structure was ripped apart during an excavation in the 1800s by Major Colin Mackenzie, some engravings were carefully preserved and transferred to various museums, both in India and abroad. The preserved remains depict the history of the Mahachaitya, which was possibly an educational abode of its time, with some engravings depicting the life & teachings of Gautama Buddha on the same.
