Lion Budha nirvana

The Lion Capital of the Ashokan Pillar in Vaishali by Shubh M Singh.

Probably the only Ashokan pillar in pristine state in India today. It stands at the sight of Kutagarasala Vihara which is the monastery where Buddha most frequently stayed while visiting Vaishali. Lord Buddha announced his decision to enter Nirvana at this location. The lion faces North to signify the direction the Buddha took on his last journey.
