Its a place where you can go and seat with peace. Take a name of the god and find the inner peace. Nice place with good maintenance. Located in center of the city.

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 .

This historical spot is an excellent place to find solace for Buddhist tourists. It has a historical importance and there are big festivals celebrated here many times in the year.

I visited this place and was amazed to see that it is so huge and well maintained. The place is very clean and also very peaceful. Good time for meditation inside.

I have stayed close to this place in Nagpur for 17 years and used to see it quite often but recent visit from Mumbai gave a memorable revisit and nostalgic experience. It reminds of founder of constitution who contributed immense to the cause of a large population of this country.

The largest Stupa in Asia, designed by Sheo Dan Mal. A great place for meditation and for bit of soul searching. The maintenance could be better. It will be good to soft walkways because, it was difficult to walk barefoot in the hot sun. Interiors are fine. No frills. There is a good photo library on Dr. Ambedkar's life and... More

Good place but does not have that neatness and ambience. On a hot day its impossible to walk. The place is not nicely labelled and does not have that wow factor
