Devraha Asthan, Kushinagar

Kushinagar is the religious destination for the major Indian communities including the followers of Hinduism, Jainism and Buddhism. It is regarded as the sacred teerath (pilgrim centre) because both Lord Mahavir and Lord Buddha frequently visited it and delivered sermons. This place was also consecrated because both Lord Mahavir and Buddha attained Nirwana here.

It is a home to a host of historical and religious monuments, temples, stupas and parks. Most of these venues contain remnants of olden times which were discovered during the excavations carried out by teams of the Archaeological Survey of India from time to time. Devraha Asthan or temple is situated approximately 3 km from Padrauna Cantonment in Kushinagar.
