MAHA PASANA GUHA CAVE

MAHA PASANA GUHA CAVE

Things to do - general

The Maha Pasana Guha (“Great cave”) is a large man made “cave” that contains a meeting hall where the 6th Buddhist council was held. The meeting hall was built inside a cave because the first Buddhist council was held inside a cave in India shortly after the Buddha’s passing into final Nirvana about 2,500 years ago. The hall’s six entrances and six large pillars supporting the roof symbolize the six councils.The hall measuring 67 meters long and 43 meters wide with a high ceiling is now used for various meetings and to host examinations on the Tripitaka, the teachings of the Buddha. At the end of the hall is a small Buddha image seated on an elaborate throne in the “Calling the Earth to witness” posture.
