TheÂ Buddha Park of Ravangla, also known asÂ TathagataÂ Tsal, is situated nearÂ RabongÂ (Ravangla) inÂ South Sikkim district,Â Sikkim,Â India. It was constructed between 2006 and 2013 and features a 130-foot high statue of theÂ BuddhaÂ as its centerpiece. The site was chosen within the larger religious complex of the RabongÂ GompaÂ (Monastery), itself a centuries-old place of pilgrimage. Also nearby isÂ Ralang Monastery, a key monastery inÂ Tibetan Buddhism.
The statue was consecrated on 25 March 2013 by theÂ 14th Dalai Lama, and became a stop on the 'HimalayanÂ BuddhistÂ Circuit'.Â The statue of the Buddha marks the occasion of the 2550th birth anniversary ofÂ Gautama Buddha. This statue was built and installed in the place through the joint efforts of theÂ SikkimÂ government and its people. The Buddhist circuit of this park was built here under a State government project, for boosting pilgrimage and tourism in the region.Â
