  • Majestic Spiritual place , calm and peaceful... Giant dome structure adds beauty. At the time of festival, light effects are mesmerizing... 😇 Proper management of crowd coming from all parts of India at the time of Buddhist festivals. Need some more dustbins to keep this spiritual place clean and serene.
  • It's a must visit historical place in Nagpur, You can enjoy beautiful monument with Peaceful environment.... One should learn it's Revolutionary History at least once
  • Holy place. The revolutionary conversion of suppressed casts to Buddhism happened here under the guidance of Dr. B R Ambedkar. The central sthupa is nice.
  • This is where Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar transformed the lives of millions of downtrodden people by by giving them the 'Diksha' of 'Buddhism'. The religious mass conversion took place on 14th Oct 1956 and hence this place is regarded as pilgrimage centre by the Buddhists all over the country who congregate here on this day. The monument is an architectural marvel being the largest hollow stupa among all Buddhist stupas in the world. With the photographs exhibited regarding the life of Dr. Ambedkar, this historically very important place must be visited by all at least once in lifetime.
  • It is situated in Nagpur, Maharashtra, a location regarded as a pilgrimage center of Buddhism in India. Thousands of pilgrims visit Deekshabhoomi every year, especially on Ashok Vijaya Dashmi and the 14th of October. A great stupa is built at that place. Deekshabhoomi is a sacred monument of Buddhism at the place where Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar was converted to Buddhism along with thousands of his followers on October 14, 1956. Dr. Ambedkar's conversion to Buddhism is still a guidance for the masses in India. Deeksha literally means acceptance of religion. Deeksha is to Buddhism as Baptism is to Christianity. Bhoomi means land. So, literally Deekshabhoomi means the land where people get converted to Buddhism. Deekshabhoomi is famous for its architectural beauty and historical importance.
