About Ramagrama


The Only Stupa Containing the Sacred Body Relics of Lord Sakyamuni Buddha.

Enlisted as UNESCO’s Tentative List of World Heritage Property in 1996, Ramagrama is a site of great archaeological and pilgrimage importance as the stupa is believed to be the only stupa that was not interfered by Emperor Asoka in the 3rd century BC and hence still contains the body relics of Lord Shakyamuni Buddha. Among the eight Lord Sakyamuni Buddha’s relic stupas, this is the only one which is still in its original form. Therefore, it is one of the holiest pilgrimage sites for Buddhists and they dream of making a pilgrimage to Ramagrama at least once in their lifetime.
