It was relaxing to be at the place. The place has such a historic significance but very poorly maintained. The state should promote this site more.

It is built by Japanese, at the place where kalinga war was held and this blood bath converted ashoka into Buddhism. It is a beautiful structure and has Buddha statues. Located on hillock it is close to Ashoka pillar and rock eddict

The Stupa architecture is very good. There is no entry fee. There are lot of high-relief art work in the stupa - depicting the life of Gautama Buddha

The Stupa seems a modern construction with Japan's support, with stories outlined on the outer walls. Overlooks the venue of Kalinga war. Meant to be a serene place for calm and peace, the place was filled with screaming tourists.

One would love the beautiful ride uphill with Ashokan pali rock scripture on the way. The stupa is a great place to unwind stress. One should not miss the Light and Sound show
