Ratnagiri-Lalitgiri-Udaygiri, three hills and their environs comprise a remarkable Buddhist
complex.Hiuentsang, the Chinese pilgrim found it to be the seat of a flourishing
Buddhists University Called Puspagiri. Extensive ruins of brick Pagodas, sculptured stone
portals and esoteric Buddhists images testifying it’s ancient glory, have been unearthed.
Ratnagiri is the gem of this complex. The magnificently carved door jamb of the Vihar
and the superbly finished Buddha images form perhaps the greatest concentration of the
Post Gupta period Buddhist sculptures.
