It consists of five huge terraces, each enshrining life size images of Lord Buddha and 104 feet high. A giant manadala can be seen at the top. Life size images of Buddha found within the cells of the stupa representing Buddhas various postures. It commemorates the spot where Buddha rested on his final journey to Kushinagar from Vaishali.
