Buddha Jayanti Park

Buddha Jayanti Park is an impressive wooded park in New Delhi. Dedicated to Lord Buddha, it was founded on the eve of 2,500 years of completion of Lord Buddha's great salvation. The park is enriched with flowers, winding pathways and hedges.

The highlight is a gilded copper statue of Lord Buddha, which is seated on a lotus pedestal, surrounded by water and swans. Another attraction is a sapling of the original Bodhi tree, brought from Sri Lanka.

A favorite place for ornithologists, Buddha Jayanti Park houses a wide variety of birds.
