Kusinagara was another important place that was graced by the royal visit. It gained historic significance as a famous place, for the main reason that Buddha, the holy master breathed his last there. As usual, Asoka distributed gold to the people in a befitting manner. At Sravasti, Asoka did reverence to the Jetavana monstery, where Buddha lived long and taught his faith to all. He extended his homage equally to the three stupas erected there to perpetuate the memory of his master's three dedicated disciples - Sariputra, Mudgalayana and Mahakasyapa.

The royal pilgrimage was ended among many with a visit to the Stupa of Ananda, the faithful attendant of the Sakya Muni. Here Asoka distributed six millions gold pieces among the natives, to commemorate the event. Magnificence and munificence appeared in their full splendour from start to finish. Wasn't he the emperor of emperors?
