This Chaitya shrine is one of the spots where Lord Buddha spent seven days (the second week of enlightenment) looking at the Bodhi tree. It is believed that he did so without batting his eyelids as a gratitude for sheltering him. Subsequently, he spent another seven days walking between the Bodhi tree and the Animesh Lochan Chaitya. The route is called Ratnachankrama or the Jewel Walk.
