Buddha circuits
Feb 2017 • Couples
An important part of Buddha circuits and it houses the relics of a stupa and remains of sateh and mateh. The lord Buddha had spent four months of rainy season for 24 years when he didnot travel. The disciples planted the kalpvriksha tree where they used to worship Buddha.

Longest life of Lord Buddha is here
Mar 2014 • Friends
Shravasti is a quiet and calm small town (village is preferred) Here, in Buddhist's Tripitaka describes that Lord Buddha spent his life 25 years hear in Jetavan temple. This town was a large capital of 1 in 6 largest kingdoms in India since 2500 year ago, Kosol Kingdom. Most of Buddhist stories were originated in this city. There are several building and stupa ruins remaining since Asoka's period. Several places have not been managed yet, you can enter and walk around for free. (Excluding one, Jetavan Temple archaeological park)

There are 2-3 hotels welcoming travelers or you can ask any buddhist temples where always welcome tourists. Taking nights in these temples are always free but please give donation.

Travelling to here you have to catch a train to Gonda junction station. Here there are several Indian drivers offer private jeep cost 1000-1500 INR to Shravasti. (I tried bargaining to 800 INR) Or you might take a shared jeep 200 INR to Shravasti (Need bargain skill) However, the cheapest way is take a local meter gauge train from Gonda Junction station to Balrumpur 10 INR/person, 3 train a day for go and back. (Timetable check in www.erail.in) then take a shared tuk-tuk to Shravasti with 20 INR/person, yeah! 20 INR/person for 15 km. English is not popular language here but hands and drawing skill communication can help you well!
