The ancient town of Vaishali is often visited by tourists, and it is a hot tourist destination in eastern India. This town is located in the Indian state of Bihar. Vaishali is very famous and has been mentioned in various historical publications and even in popular mythology. The town is famous among both Buddhists and Jains, who travel here regularly.

The vast ancient town is once said to have hosted 7707 parks and lotus ponds. You can see the ancient structures here that are still standing as a silent testimony to times of yore. An Ashokan Pillar can also be seen in the town of Vaishali.

Jains flock to the town in dozens because this town is rumored to be the birthplace of Bhagwan Mahavira. The town is thus a very important religious destination for all Jains. Gautama Buddha is also said to have preached a sermon here, possibly his last. There are many monasteries and stupas in this region that attract a lot of tourist attention.

The most famous stupas and places of Buddhist religious interest are Relic Stupa, World Peace Pagoda, Ananda Stupa and Kutagarasala Vihara. All these are must visit places that you shouldn’t miss during your trip to Vaishali.
