Kesaria Stupa, East Champaran Overview

As its name suggests, Kesariya Stupa is a majestic Buddhist Stupa lying in Kesariya in the Champaran district of Bihar. Constructed under the commands of emperor Ashoka, Kesaria Stupa happens to be the biggest and tallest Buddhist stupa in the whole world.

The stupa is built at the same site, where Lord Buddha donated his begging bow during his last days. Adorned with a myriad of impressive Buddhist statues, this stupa is a brilliant epitome of traditional Buddist architecture. Certain parts of this stupa are in their ruins as a result of the invasion made by Muslim rulers in the times gone by.
