This is one of the most ancient sites where the Buddha is said to have preached his Lotus Sermon.
Quite true to the meaning of its name as Vulture Peak indeed the peak appears as a shape of vulture head with a natural stone formation. The place is also referred as “Gujjhakut” in Buddhist text.
One of the most ancient sites where the Buddha is said to have preached his Lotus Sermon was amongst the favorite meditating place of the Buddha. Even today one can feel the deep sense of spiritual power at the peak that is devoid of any man-made grandeur.
A statue of the Buddha (600 BCE) was found here and currently housed at Archeological Museum of Nalanda.
The view of the surrounding forest land and the path leading to Ghoda Katora Lake adds to divine experience to the visitors.
