Legend has it that Lord Buddha loved spending time in this city, especially during the rainy season. Housing two villages, namely Sahet and Mahet, Sravasti was home to 57,000 families during Buddha’s times. The two main monasteries in Sravasti were the Jetavana and the Pubbarama. The former has inscriptions dating back to the 12th century and its remnants were one of Lord Buddha’s favorite sites. During their Buddhist circuit Sravasti travel, pilgrims can pay obeisance to a sacred peepal tree, which is a sapling from the original Maha Bodhi tree under which Buddha attained nirvana.

According to the history of Buddhism, Gautama Buddha first came to Sravasti at the urging of Sudatta, a rich merchant who had met Buddha earlier. He also built a suitable vihara in a beautiful park near the Southern edge of Sravasti. Other than Sudatta, Lord Buddha had four chief patrons in Sravasti including Anathapindika, Visakha, Suppavasa and Pasenadi. He lived the longest part of his life in this city and taught the maximum number of sermons and discourses here. It is also the site where he performed several miracles and acquired thousands of devout followers. This place played a pivotal role in Buddha’s life and for this reason, it should be visited by every Buddhist at least once in their lifetime.
