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 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.

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

I was suprised to see Japanese influence in India. Its a nice Buddhist Tempal with great architecture marvel. You can just go and meditate or discover inner peace. Nice gardens and marble floors.

This is the one of historic place for Indian Buddhists. On 14th Oct. 1956 Dr. Ambedkar - creator of Indian constitution- converted to Buddhism on this place. If you are interested in Indian Buddhism, must visit and see how things changed for Buddhists from this place. I would say it's must visit for everyone!
