Kadhi Badi Dish | Iamge Resource :

Kadhi Badi Dish : I got a chance to taste the Kadhi Badi when I visited Punjab for a friend’s wedding. The dish was made with buttermilk as its base and had dumplings which were similar to Pakodas. The dish itself was spicy and had a touch of sourness from the buttermilk and made for a very satisfying meal.

It was constructed by the Nichidatsu Fujii who is the founder of Nipponzan-Myohoji. He built this Stupa for the harmony and unity of all people and several such Stupas were built for this reason all around the world. He established several pagodas and this is one among them. Moreover it is one among the famous Buddhists pilgrimage destinations.

The Stupa was built in the year 1969 and one among the 80 Peace Stupas in the world. This marvel of peace is the tallest of all Peace Pagodas in the world and stands majestically 400 meters tall. It holds 4 statues of divine Bhudha on the 4 corners. All the four statues depict the phases of Buddha’s life which are birth, enlightenment, teaching and end of  life.

I walked around the Stupa and explored each and every corner of it. The ropeway connecting the Rajgir hills is an amazing construction. I took a rid in the ropeway. It was an enchanting view to see from the ropeway. Ropeway is another attraction here and you can enjoy a good ride here.
