About Buddha Smriti Park

The Buddha Smriti Park, also known as the Buddha Memorial Park is a tribute to the great Lord Buddha by the government of Bihar. The park is constructed exactly where once the historical Bankipur Central Jail stood. Sprawling over an area of nine hectares, this park is a beauty to behold. The park houses multiple attractions among which the 200 feet tall Stupa erected right at the center of it is the focal point of the Buddha Smriti Park. The massive structure is a thing of admiration which is built of sandblasted charcoal and has a unique bulletproof chamber inside. The Stupa shelters Lord Buddha’s holy ashes in a pot along with valuable relics from Japan, Srilanka, Thailand and South Korea which are exhibited in a glass case. Other attractions of the park include a museum that showcases the life story of Buddha through original artifacts, audio-visual, 3D and multimedia presentations. The park also has a meditation center that is built in the same way as the ancient Mahavihara of Nalanda. A fantastic place to sit and engage in introspection, the facility includes a library consisting of books on Buddhism. Saplings of Holy Bodhi trees from Anuradhapura in Srilanka have also been planted here.
