Deekshabhoomi is a sacred monument of Buddhism at the place where the architect of the Indian Constitution, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, went back to Buddhism along with his about 500,000 followers on 14 October 1956. Dr. Ambedkar's return to Buddhism is still an important matter for many in India. Great place to visit I go to deekshabhoomi on every sunday .

the Peace stupa is erected in memory of the Buddhist liberation day for many who can not proclaim themselves buddhist previously. It is a remarkable milestones of local people to pronounce themself buddhist. Nothing fancy but the architecture is similar to the Sanchii Stupa .
