A bit peaceful trip-Sravasti

Overall I can say visiting anathpindika stupa is more of heritage importance. Its not a very fun types trip. But still a bit religious and helpful in absorbing the mental peace of lord Buddha. Outside no good eating points and no nearby places of shopping makes the place boring. Garden and park are good. Connectivity is a real problem. Suggestions are having a good vehicle like innovative or SUV a decent camera personal food items and water bottle. Prefer going in early morning or late afternoon to really cherish the tranquillity of the place. Try to meditate if you do and prefer ;).

Sravasti Overview

Sravasti District, also known as Savatthi, is one of the important Buddhist centres in India. The district in Uttar Pradesh is spread over an area of 1,858 sq km and has its headquarters at Bhinga town. Sravasti District is a part of Devipatan Division.. The district shares international boundary with Nepal to the north-east along with Balrampur and Banke districts of Uttar Pradesh.

According to the Hindu epic Mahabharata, the origin of Sravasti was named after King Shravasta of Suryavanshi Dynasty, who ruled the territory during the 6th century. Sravasti is mentioned in the Hindu epic Ramayana as a prosperous city in the kingdom of Kosala, whereas the Puranas has referred Sravasti as the capital of North Kosala.

Located in the Gangetic plains in the Gonda region of Uttar Pradesh, the history of the destination dates back to the time of Gautama Buddha. According to Buddhist scriptures, Lord Buddha spent 25 years of his life in this region. The testimonies of that time, which include Jetavana Monastery and Lord Buddha’s hut remains, are among the chief attractions of Sravasti.

The erstwhile capital of the Kosala Mahajanapada region is identified as the birth place of Sambhavnath and Chandra Prabhu Tirthankaras. Sravasti features several historic stupas, monasteries and religious sites.

The Jain temple, Anathapindika Stupa and Angulimala Stupa are the chief attractions of Savatthi along with monasteries of Thailand, South Korea, China and Tibet. One of the main festivals celebrated in the destination is Buddha Purnima.

The international airport of Lucknow serves as the nearest airbase to the region, which is located at a distance of 150 km. Besides, the railhead of Gonda is the closest railhead to the district headquarters which is connected with Ahmedabad, Bangalore, New Delhi, Lucknow, Kolkata and Agra. Uttar Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation along with private bus operators provides bus services from cities like Allahabad, Agra, Kanpur, Lucknow and Mathura.

Sravasti experiences tropical monsoon type of climatic conditions. The months from October to March are ideal to explore Sravasti due to suitable climate.
