Located in present-day Bihar, Nalanda was once a famous center of learning in India. Considered by historians to be one of the world’s first residential universities, it was not only the greatest center of learning in the ancient world but also a renowned Buddhist Monastic University or Mahavihara. Because of the wealth of its heritage, Nalanda is a place of interest for historians and archaeologists alike. If you want to uncover the treasures of this age-old destination, then get aboard The Buddhist Circuit Tourist Trains for the ultimate Nalanda Buddhist tour.
From shrines to stupas, Nalanda contains several remnants of the old world archaeological remains of a monastic and scholastic institution dating from the 3rd century BCE to the 13th century CE. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it has vast arrays of compounds, dormitories, temples, meditation halls, a library, and other educational infrastructure. Your Nalanda Buddhist tourism package will include a visit to Nalanda Ruins, Nalanda Archaeological Site, and the Nalanda International University.
One of the most famous Buddha Nalanda travel trains in the country, the IRCTC Buddhist Circuit Tourist train takes guests on a peaceful journey to all the important places associated with the life and times of Lord Buddha. The 8 days and 7 nights journey gives all passengers the equal opportunity to visit sacred places and still get some time for meditation and self-introspection.
