Griddhakuta Hill, also known as Vulture's peak, is the most important place in Rajgir
. It was here that the Buddha
started his second wheel of law and delivered some of the important sermons to his followers. Atop of the hill, there is a large stupa called Shanti Stupa
or Peace Pagoda which was constructed by the Buddhists of Japan. One can reach the top using an aerial chairlift, which takes about seven minutes.
