About 1700 years old Amphitheater.
It can accommodate about a thousand spectators. It is a unique example of architecture in ancient India. 
It encloses a rectangular area 16.46 x 13.72 m.
The place could have been used for sports and wrestling as attested by several scriptural representations of wrestling scenes from Nagarjunakonda.
 


About 1700 years ago, Nagarjunakonda used to be a prosperous Buddhist town in Andhra Pradesh. What had been a successful centre in earlier times, has been preserved in the form of an island at present. Infact, it is one amongst the 20 major Buddhist sites in India.
