This place is the major attraction for their round shape like stoop and this is the place of Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar where he took the Deeksha from their Guru. Hence called the Deeksha Bhoomi. This place is very peaceful and situated near the Dr Ambedkar College and open only in morning and in evening.

It requires a 200-300 metre walk to reach the santum, but once inside, its pin drop silence and an amazing cool atmosphere. When we went there, there was only one more... More

This must surely rank as one of the most important location to witness an epochal event of post-independence India. Has a collection of some rare photographs of the man and his life. Very well maintained. A must see place for those visiting Nagpur.

I had visited nagpur for official work and On the way to the office I saw Deeksha Bhoomi. It is the place where Dr. Babashaheb Ambedkar returned to Buddism. It is a very calm place where one can find inner peace.
