Akkana and Madanna Caves, Vijayawada

Home » Destinations » Vijayawada » Attractions » Akkana and Madanna Caves

The Akkana and Madanna Caves are two rock-cut caves which are named after two ministers of the court of Abdul Hasan Tanashah, who ruled the region in the 17th century. Both these ministers were associated with the carving of these caves. The caves are said have existed since the 6th and 7th centuries. Travellers can visit this site on the way to the famous Kanaka Durga temple as the caves are located just below the hillock on which the temple is located.

The cave on the top has a rock cut temple which was constructed in the name of the Hindu Trinity- Bramha, Vishnu and Maheshwara.
