The holy Pitru Kshetra

And foreigners from Far-East particularly visit on this day only to procure them for worshipping in their houses. Down the ages right from Asoka hundreds of imperial monarchs have visited it and made liberal endowments to perpetuate that event of events in the history of mankind.

This Mahabodhi lies at the back of the temple towards the west. And the temple enshrining the image of Buddha is equally held holy. It is built in a spacious compound and has mini-shrines of different kinds. It is an architectural marvel dominating the landscape by its huge dimensions with a tall tower measuring 170 feet in height. As Siddhartha meditated and got illumination here; Buddhists visit and deem it as the centre of universe. Several kinds of Buddhist relics were excavated in this area in 1881, when Government launched the renovation programme. The image of Buddha is very attractive and is being worshipped by both Hindus and Buddhists with equal fervour, since Buddha is considered as the ninth incarnation of Sri Mahavishnu and Buddhist relics have formed a part of Hindus worship. Vayu puma records that Aswatha Vriksha embodies the Trio-with Brahma at the base, Vishnu in the middle and Siva on the top.
