Inaugurated in 2010 by the 14th Dalai Lama himself, the highlight of the park is the magnanimous Patliputra Karuna Stupa situated in the centre of the park. Sprawling over 22 acres, there were two special saplings that were planted here at the time of its opening- one of it was brought from Bodh Gaya and the other from Anuradhapura in Sri Lanka.
