Highlights

  • Shalban Vihara: The Mainimati Ruins near the border of India are a selection of over fifty Buddhist sites that date back between the 7th-12th centuries. Of the few are available to the public, Shalban Vihara is the most impressive, and yielded a wealth of artifacts stored in the nearby museum.
  • Ghost City: Explore the ruins of the derelict town of Panam Nagar, once a prosperous textile trading hub in the 19th century and where the East India Company set up its permanent offices.
