Kesaria

Two miles to the south stands a lofty brick mound copped by a solid brick tower of considerable size, which itself is a remains of a Buddhist stupa. The mound itself is a ruined man of solid brick work 62 ft in height and 1400 ft in circumference at its base which the stupa which is in ruins has a diameter of 68 ft at its base and a total height of 52 1/2 ft. originally it was crowned by pinnacle which must have stood 80 or 90 ft. high or including the ruined basement not less than 150 ft. above the ground. General cunningham was of opinion that it dates back to AD 200 to 700 and that it was built upon the ruins of a much older and larger stupa. This ancient monument is known to the people as the deora of Raja Ben preserves the story recorded by Hiuen Tsiang, according to whose account this sputa was referred to a Chakaravarty Raja by the Buddhist of the 7th Century.

This stupa is in fact one of the many memorial stupas built by the Buddhists at places connected with some remarkable event in the life of Buddha.
