This large stupa rises to a height of 49 ft. It marks the site where the Lord Buddha was cremated. In ancient Buddhist texts, this stupa has been referred to as Mukut-Bandhan Vihar, alias THE CREMATION STUPA. It is located about 500 meters to the east of The Imperial, Kushinagar and Less than 1.61 km to the east of the Matha-kuar shrine. There stands a mound facing the road from Kasia to Deoria. There is a sheet of water, called Ramabhar Jhil or pond, close to it, which dries up in summers. Whether the name Ramabhar originally belonged to the pond or to the mound it is difficult to say; nor can it be satisfactorily derived or its relation to the events of Buddha’s death easily explained.
