A bumpy and dusty trip, 50 km away from Gorakhpur, wasn’t a bad idea! In fact, it turned out to be a splendid surprise - Kushingar is a small, modest town, which is an important Buddhist pilgrimage site. It has some of the most beautifully crafted temples, showcasing exceptionally exquisite Thai and Chinese architecture.
It’s a place that I found spellbinding in its own way. The temples with their historical significance add a kind of mystical charm that resonates. Open rustic landscape coupled with laid-back ambiance makes it a different experience altogether.

On my way back to Gorakhpur, I could easily brush aside the dust and bumps on the road, because I had carried a ‘keepsake of moments’ spent in Kushinagar. It was a short yet very rewarding excursion - a must visit for those who appreciate great architecture.
