The important thing to notice at Buddha Jayanti Park is that a sapling of the original Bodhi Tree, under which Gautama Buddha attained Nirvana, from Sri Lanka was brought and planted here. Sanghamitra, Emperor Asoka’s daughter, from Bodh Gaya took a sapling of the original Bodh tree and went to Sri Lanka to preach park.
