The Buddha Park, located near Rabong or Ravangla, in South Sikkim, Sikkim, India is also known as Tathagata Tsal. Built in between 2006-2013, the centre of attraction of the Buddha Park is the 130 foot high statue of Lord Buddha. The religious complex of the Rabong Gompa is chosen as the site which is itself a pilgrimage place that is century old. The Buddha Park, Ravangla is also located near the Ralang Monastery which is a main monastery for Tibetan Buddhism of the region.
The gigantic statue of Lord Buddha was put up on 25th March, 2013 by Dalai Lama (14th). Soon after its inauguration it became a center on the ‘Himalayan Buddhist Circuit’. The main purpose of putting up the statue was to mark the 2550th birth anniversary of Lord Buddha. This statue is the joint effort of the Sikkim Government and its people. The State government took an initiative to build a Buddhist circuit of this park in order to boost tourism and pilgrimage. Within the complex is located the beautiful Cho Djo lake that is surrounded by a forest.
