The Great Stupa at Amaravati was a large Buddhist monument built in south-eastern India between the second century B.C. and the third century A.D. It was a centre for religious activity and worship for hundreds of years.

The Stupa was part of a complex of religious buildings built and paid for by local people. Over time, the Stupa was added to and changed many times.
