Lalitgiri


Lalitgiri, OrissaLalitgiri figures an imperative point of the Diamond Triangle comprising the Lalitgiri-Udaygiri (in the present Jajpur district) - Khandagiri group. Lalitgiri is presently located in Cuttack district of Orissa. It is assumed to be the earliest Buddhist complex which came into existence way back to the 1st century AD. Latest excavations have revealed momentous archaeological evidences that endorse Lalitgiri as a prime Buddhist seat. The picturesque beauty of the surrounding lush green meadows augments among the grandiose vestiges of the vast brick Buddhist monastery, the remnants of the Chaitya Hall, the votive Stupas and the modified stone stupa placed at the peak of a petite craggy sandstone hill.


Apart from these, the museum also features a wide number of the Mahayana figures embracing immense statures of Lord Buddha, gigantic statues of Tara, Jhambala etc. and the enormous Bodhisattva figures. The majority of these figurines bear brief captions or messages on them. The Standing Buddha statues reflect striking resemblance with the Gandhara and Mathura schools of art. The fact that has further adds to the sanctity of this place to the Buddhists all over the world, which lure them to this holy place of Lalitgiri, was the discovery of the caskets enclosing sacrosanct relics of Buddha from the stone stupa located at the hill top.
