Signage: Popularly known as Manik Vehera, the history of this monastery is not known. But according to the architectural features, it could date back to the 8-9 centuries AD. This monastery has a terraced layout and consists of a stupa, bodhi-tree shrine, image houses, a refectory, monks’ dispensary, and cells. Built on a high terrace surrounded by a high wall, the stupa here is of a rare type. The relief of terracotta tablets of squatting lions decorating the plinth and the carved stone door frame of the projected entrance are the special features of this stupa.
