Ruins of Telhara

Telhara is a village in Ekangarsarai block of Nalanda district, in Bihar. It is also the site of the Telhara monastery which dates to the 1st-century CE. Telhara was the site of a Buddhist monastery in ancient India. It has been mentioned as Teladhaka in the writings of the Chinese traveler Hiuen Tsang, who visited the place in the 7th century CE. A Pala sculpture from the site is present at the Rietberg Museum in Zurich. The Indian Museum in Kolkata houses the Maitreya and the twelve-armed Avalokiteswar images from Telhara.
