Ratnagiri


Ratnagiri, OrissaRatnagiri figures an imperative point of the Diamond Triangle comprising the Lalitgiri (in the present Cuttack district)-Udaygiri - Khandagiri group. Ratnagiri is presently located in the river basin of Jajpur district of Orissa. It is assumed to be one of the early Buddhist complexes which came into existence way back to the period of the Gupta ruler, Narasimha Gupta Baladitya, in the initial half of the sixth century AD. Latest excavations have revealed momentous archaeological evidences that endorse Ratnagiri as a principal Buddhist seat. The picturesque beauty of the surrounding augments among the grandiose vestiges of the vast brick Buddhist monastery, the patterned terracotta commemorative inscriptions with dharanis, the votive Stupas with features of mysticisms of the Vajrayana sect, the stone stupa slabs with inscriptions, a large stupa adjoining several miniature stupas and a stone temple.


Apart from these, the museum also became a great gathering place of Tantric Buddhism or Vajryana art and viewpoint. The establishment at Ratnagiri played a vital element in the advent of Kalachakratantra around the 10th century AD. In the contemporary times, this Buddhist monastery in its ruins is an ideal place to visit for mere tourists as well as art lovers to savour the splendor of ancient architecture.
