The relics of the Buddh
One fragmentary of pavani art elements detected the King Ajatasatru carrying to the relics of the Buddha. It appears that in its heyday, the area of Chandkapur stupa it was socio-economic valuable humanistic activity. That this establishment must have attracted Buddhist Monks and devotees from afar is further corroborated by the find of rock-cut caves with inscriptions in 2nd century B.C. in the hills of Pullar forest near which is hardly 16 kilometer (10 miles) due south of Chandkapur Stupa.
By virtue of the majestic dimensions of the Chandkapur Stupa, it is apparent that they sustained entirely on public munificence. They refer mostly to person from common walks of life. These include the householder (gahapati), the devoted disciple (antevasins) and in the signification of the devotees of ‘Naga’ clan. we are very extremely thankful to our ancestor of Naga clan because the expression of Chandkapur Stupa construction work showed by ‘Naga’ clan and ‘Naga’ clan munificence that contributed to the remarkable development of Chandkapur Stupa who was by profession a goldsmith.

Creating better economic opportunities
Therefore, The Buddhist Ancient Monument is a globally important especially in East and South East Asian regions, making it an important platform for strengthening bilateral and cultural ties. However, despite its Socio-economic cultural values and religious significance, Tourism infrastructure along the Ancient Buddhist Monuments are remains relatively undeveloped and large volumes of Tourists have failed to translate into higher incomes for the rural area communities.
