Sagarahawa

About 12km north of Taulihawa lies the forest of Sagarahawa with a long lake known as Lumbusagar. In this site, the Sakyas were massacred by king Virudhaka out of massacre. Later, in the memory of the noble Sakyas, hundreds of stupas were built here by their descendants. Dr. A.Fuhrer excavated and explored these stupas in 1897-1898.
