SANKASHYA FACTS & FIGURES

Location: Uttar Pradesh, India
Significance: Where the Buddha descended from the Tushita Heaven, the Sixth Place of Pilgrimage.

Sankashya - where the Buddha descended from the Tushita Heaven to encourage ladies to become Buddhist Monks, Buddha went to the Heaven to preach his deceased mother, Queen Maya, the attainment of Nirvana. The Chinese travelers to India in the 6th century have mentioned this place.

Not much of the ancient glory of the place remains today. Within a deserted, fenced area stands a large mound topped by the crumbling ruins of a Hindu shrine, in which the former image has been replaced by a small representation of the Buddha. The elephant capital of Ashoka's pillar has been remounted on a ten-foot high pillar beneath a stone canopy. Another small shrine nearby contains a statue of Buddha.

This is the only one of the eight places of pilgrimage where today there is no temple, monastery or even a solitary monk.
