This site is located the village of Bairat (ancient name Viratanagara), 52 miles from Jaipur in the Jaipur district. It is famous for an Asokan inscription. It also has a very early free-standing monastery, probably from the 3rd century BCE. Xuanzang, in the 630's, found 8 monasteries on the site but most were ruined. Only a few monks remained. Excavations carried out on the different terraces of this hill known as Bijak-ki-Pahari have yielded remains of a Mauryan circular stupa-shrine made of lime-plastered panels of brickwork alternating with twenty-six octagonal pillars of wood, preceded by monastic remains with a double row of cells arranged around an open square courtyard.
