The Koliyas obtained one of the eight part of the Buddha’s relic which they enshrined here and built a magnificent stupa and worshipped for a long time. Buddha literary sources mention that Emperor Asoka wanted to open and obtain the Buddha’s relic to build eighty four thousand minors stupas throughout his vast empire . However , the emperor did not touch the precious relic because of the request made by Dragon king and people of Ramagram. This surviving single original relic stupa standing 7 meters high on the bank of the Jharahi River is the most important stupa of its kind in the whole of the world.
Extensive exploration and excavation all around the ancient stupa.

Restoration work needed.
