AMARAVATI

Amaravati temple has also a wealth of inscription on its walls like those of the Kota chiefs of Arnaravati, the Kondaveedu Reddis, and others. There is also an inscription of 'Sri Krishandevaraya.

On the erection of a mantapam here. On a pillar in the Mukhamantapa the wife of Proli Nayudu, who was a dependent of Koppara Kesanivarma, has left an inscription.

Any account of Amaravati will not be complete without reference to the world- famous Buddha stupa here.

For sheer beauty of execution,for the perfection of calligraphy in the several inscriptions, for that fine delineation of human emotions in stone, as for example the conversion of Nanda, on the eve of his marriage to Prajapati Gautami, the moving scene of the great renunciation or the Mahabhinishkramana, the subjugation of the intoxicated elephant Nalagiri by Lord Buddha, and other scenes from Buddha’s life which are depicted in the Amaravati style of sculpture, there is no other to compare.
