  • This place is an important monument for Buddhism. Once you go inside you see lot of photos explaining about the importance of the place. Camera not allowed inside.

  • Deekshabhoomi is a sacred monument of Buddhism at the place where the architect of the Indian Constitution, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar, went back to Buddhism with his about 600,000 followers on 14 October 1956. Millions of pilgrims visit Deekshabhoomi every year, especially on 'Dhamma Chakra Pravartan Din' (Mass Conversion Ceremony Day) and 14 October, the memorial day when Dr. Ambedkar converted to Buddhism here. Ambedkar's final religious act was to embrace Buddhism. Deeksha literally means 'act of ordaining' and bhoomi means the 'ground'. Deekshabhoomi means the ground where people got ordained as Buddhist. This religious mass conversion at one place was the first ever of its kind in history. It's a very peaceful place and you must visit once if you have time. There is a beautiful banyan tree outside called Bodhi tree.
  • It's a Buddhism religion place... One of Top famous place hole world... Millions of pilgrims visit Deekshabhoomi every year because 14 October, the memorial day when The great Dr. Ambedkar converted to Buddhism here. Long form of deekshabhoomi - Deeksha means 'act of ordaining and bhoomi means the 'ground'.. Jay Bhim
