At a distance of 77 Kms from Vijayawada, Jaggayya Peta was once an important Buddhist centre. Numerous excavations have revealed a rich Buddhist heritage which includes stupas made completely out of bricks.

Maha Chaitya is what the stupa is referred to in the 3rd / 4th century inscriptions and consists of a ruined pillared hall immediately south-east, and a few inconspicuous mounds in the surroundings. Some of the artifacts of the excavation have found their way to Government Museum, Madras.

Regular RTC buses are operated to Jaggayya Peta from Vijayawada Central Bus Station.
