Gridhakut hill located in Rajgir is also known as the Vulture’s peak. Lord Buddha set his second wheel of law in motion at this site and preached his devotees for three months. There is a modern Shanti Stupa built by the Buddha Sangh of Japan on top of the hill. The stupa can be reached by an aerial chair lift on all days of the week except on Thursdays.
