The king agreed with the woman, and offered her land as much as she could cover with the skin of a water buffalo. The woman proceeded to cut a buffalo hide into thin strips, and placed them end to end to form a huge circumference. And she built the stupa. Which has became special pilgrimage site and now has became tourist site too. The pilgrimages , monks and nuns can be seen   around this stupa moving in a circular clockwise motion with taking MALA in a hand as well as chanting the Mantra.
