East India Region

Mountains, Waterfalls, Natural Heritage of East India RegionThe North-Eastern Indian States The Eastern Region has the beautiful Sun Temple in Orissa, designed as a massive stone chariot on twenty four exquisitely carved wheels and drawn by seven straining horses(now a World Heritage Monuments); the beautiful mountain State, Sikkim; 'The Seven Sisters' of Northern Eastern Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Darjeeling, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura. the actual tree (still living), under which the Buddha attained enlightenment in Bodh Gaya, Bihar, Nalanda - the ruins of the world's earliest university founded in the 5th century BC also in Bihar; that vital, volatile, overcrowded, exciting metropolis, Kolkatta in West Bengal; and the Seven Sisters in the North East.

Orissa, the ancient kingdom of Kalinga, lies on the North Eastern extremity of the Indian peninsula, cocooned between the Eastern Ghats (range of hills) on the West and the Bay of Bengal on the East. Still largely unexplored and untouched by modernity, it is a fascinating State to visit where one can see some of the wonders of india's cultural and natural heritage. There are serene beaches along a 480 km coastline, forests, mountains, waterfalls galore, ancient monuments, hot sulphur springs, a very special kind of zoo, and Chilika lake, a bird watcher's paradise. The people of Orissa ande the language are both called Oriya.

Bodh Gaya - Buddhism Pilgrim Centre BIHAR - North of Orissa is the State of Bihar where Buddhism was bom 2500 years ago. In Bodh Gaya, 160 km from the State capital, Patna, is the very same tree, still growing out of its own saplings, under which the Buddha meditated and attained enlightenment twenty-five centuries ago. It is an important pilgrim centre for Buddhists.

At Nalanda, the world's earliest university, founded two-and-a-half thousand years ago, is now quiet and still. It once housed 2000 teachers and 10,000 students from all parts of the then civilised world. It was patronised by the Buddhist emperor Ashoka who built temples and monasteries here. An International Centre for Buddhist studies has been established.

Sikkim - Enchey Monastery Standing tall at a height of 8534 mts, the Mount Khangchen-dzonga is a spectacular sight. And situated in the Eastern Himalayas, below the Mount Khangchendzonga, is the small but wonderfully beautiful Sikkim. The Mount Khangchen-dzonga (or 'Kanchenjunga' as it is commonly called) holds a special importance in the lives of the Sikkimese people who worship it as their protective deity.
