This Stupa is termed as the Stupa 1 and is the oldest stone architecture of India. This stupa is extremely well decorated with cravings and inscriptions, depicting the history of that period. This stupa had been built over the relics of Lord Buddha and the Chatra built over the Stupa serves as the umbrella. The four gateways or Torans that surround this Stupa are carved with tales from the earlier lives of Lord Buddha and are known as the Jataka tales.

The 2nd Stupa was constructed beside the first one during the rule of the Suganas. This Stupa is less decorated and does not consist of any gateways.

The 3rd Stupa consist of two boxes by the name of Sariputra and Mandgalyana. The first box consists of two fragments of a bone and crystals, pearls, sandalwood and other stones.
