Buddha Vihara- Gulbarga

Gulbarga has many historical buildings particularly of the Deccan sultans. A visit to the the Shrine of the Sufi saint Hazrat Kwaja Bande Nawas and the Sharana Baseweshwara temple is a must, which I couldn't in this visit, But the latest addition to monuments is the Buddha Vihara which was thrown open to public last year. A imposing white structure built over 75 acres of land is worth a visit, if one is in Gulbarga. Photography is prohibited in the precincts and I have no complaints, the ambience is silent and peaceful

Beautiful pictures of Buddha Vihara, Gulbarga. I have been to Gulbarga, city in karnataka, famous for toordal Pigeon pea and the limestone deposits. It has the largest collection of Islamic art and there are various places to visit in Gulbarga which are adorned with painting containing various designs.
