Nagarjunakonda, the ancient Vijayapuri, in the taluk of the Guntur district, Andhra Pradesh, is an isolated valley, now engulfed with the mighty waters of Nagarjuna Sagar Dam. It was once the spectacular capital seat of the Ikshvaku dynasty of the third to fourth centuries AD Nagarjunakonda Buddhist art represents the culmination of an aesthetic experience and technical execution of more than 300 years of devotion to the sculptural art in Andhra Pradesh.

This beautifully and profusely illustrated document projects an in-depth and authentic account of the diverse subjects of Buddhistic thought impeccably delineated in the Nagarjunakonda sculptures.
