A religious landmark for Buddhism, the Deekshabhoomi is a standout amongst the most well known journey places for Buddhist in India. Without a doubt an imperative vacation destination of the City of Oranges, the Nagpur Deekshabhoomi was built at the place where Dr.Babasaheb Ambedkar, the engineer of Indian constitution returned to Buddhism on October 14, 1956, alongside his 60,000 adherents.
A large number of Buddhist explorers visit this place each year and the number is incredibly more on Mass Transformation Service Day or Dhamma Chakra Pravartan Noise and obviously on the fourteenth of October when Ambedkar held onto Buddhism as his religion. Deekshabhoomi is the greatest stupa in Asia and is visited by Buddhist from different nations as well.
The word ‘Deekshabhoomi’ has started from two words ‘Deeksha’ and ‘Bhoomi’. Deeksha implies the demonstration of appointing while bhoomi implies ground. This implies Deekshabhoomi is the ground on which individuals got appointed to Buddhism. Such a mass transformation at one place was first of its kind in the whole history of humanity. more..
