It's a city in India that no longer exists


Explanation:
Supplementary info:

Located about 150 kms. southeast of Hyderabad, the state capital of Andhra Pradesh. There is a regular ferry service to Nagarjunakonda. The easiest way to visit these places is to take the tour organised by the APTTDC. Regular buses link Hyderabad, Warangal, Vijaywada and Guntur with Nagarjuna Sagar. The nearest railway station is at Macherla, 29 km from Nagarjuna Sagar, - a branch line running west from Guntur - and regular buses leave there for Nagarjuna Sagar. Launches to Nagarjunakonda museum depart from Nagarjuna Sagar at 9.30 am and 1.30 pm. Ethipothala Waterfalls are 11 kms downstream, from the Nagarjuna Sagar in a beautiful valley. The Chandravanka stream here cascades into a breathtaking lagoon and flows on through the lush valley. For accomodation there is a A.P Tourism's Ethipothala guest house.

The city itself is an underwater archeological site now completely buried under a dam.
