Among the most attractive tourist stopovers in Nalanda, the Hiuen Tsang Memorial Hall was built in the memory of Hiuen Tsang, a popular Chinese traveller who had come to study Buddhism and mysticism at the Nalanda University in 633 AD, and stayed here for 12 years. Tsang travelled around the country and also visited Takshila for further studies on Buddhism. The place where he used to learn yoga from his teacher Acharya Shil Bhadra, is now known as the memorial hall. The construction of the hall was started in January 1957 by Pt Jawaharlal Nehru and got completed in 1984. During his stay, Tsang collected a number of documents that are a major source of history in Buddhist writing. These are well preserved in the memorial hall.
