Gulbarga Buddha Vihar - Introduction
Buddha Vihar - A Home of Equality
The Buddha Vihar has been constructed under the aegis of the Siddhartha Vihar Trust that was established in 1994. The Vihara hopes to spread the message of peace, compassion and non-violence as taught by the Buddha in order to create a peaceful, egalitarian society where there is tolerance and understanding. The completion of the Vihara is a result of the hard work and generosity of countless workers, volunteers and well wishers towards this noble cause.
The Buddha Vihar is located about six kilometers from Gulbarga city on Sedam Road. The Vihara is spread over 24 acres of land and rises 60 feet above the ground level. The Buddha Vihar is situated on a hillock and is on three levels. Each level is about a hundred feet long. The path to the vihara is covered by greenery on both sides and the Vihara itself is surrounded by gardens, flowers and fruit bearing trees.
