We Indians don't understand the value of the treasure of Buddhist civilization found in the basin of Nagarjuna Sagar dam. No information booklets available , No guides to give information in the museum. Nearly 1700 years old treasure in the museum , but I think indian Govt. Is least bothered about it. Ofcourse it's my opinion and observations.
