Lalitagiri is also a well-known tourist pilgrimage, especially for Buddhism, and draws hoards of pilgrims each year. It has a famous 1st century Buddhist complex and some of the best sculptures of that age.

The place itself is like an ancient village, with greenery and free spaces, mild forests and breezes blowing all the time. The ancient stupas, sculptures on them and the caves give it a look that fairly resembles to that ancient age.
