Visit to Shravasti


Friday 27th January, 2012
After arriving at Gonda train station, it was another long 65 km bus trip to Shravasti. Here I saw:
* the Jetvana Vihara (where the Buddha gave most of his discourses and spent 24 rainy seasons in residence) within Jeta’s Grove
* Pakki Kuti (a stupa commemorating Angulimala)
* the Anand Bodhi tree (an offspring of the Bodhgaya one) and
* Sehat Mahet
