At a distance of 50 Kms from Vijayawada, Chandavaram is an important Buddhist site. It has a unique double terraced stupa on a hillock known as Singarakonda (beautiful hillock).
Excavations at this site have revealed beautifully carved limestone panels which would have supposedly decorated the dome, drum and railings of the stupa. Besides, Chaityagrihas and Viharas, other minor stupas have also been found on the hilltop.
Regular RTC buses are operated to Chandavaram from Vijayawada.
