About / Importance - It is the name of the hilltop where an important remains of a stupa is situated
The base pedestals measure about 10’ high and the cylindrical brick stupa on it is about 28’ in diameter and the height 21’. There is an ancient stone path about 20’ wide that leads to the peak till the stupa.
View & Feel -
The Cylindrical Stupa has beautiful motifs on its sides. The layer of plaster is also visible at different places on the stupa, sometimes almost thicker than an inch. So it can be assumed that this stupa was once decorated with stucco images and was an important destination for the followers of Buddism. There is a lake on the hill a little beyond the stupa and the view of the green valley below with the azure Ghorakatora Lake spread at the valley below is absolutely a breathtaking spectacle from the hill top.
