Facing the Vaishali Museum is the beautiful lake known as the Coronation Tank or Abhishekh Pushkarni. Surrounded by flowering trees and shrubs, the water of the reservoir was believed to be sacred in the old days and all of Vaishali’s elected representatives were anointed here, before their swearing in.

Built on the south bank of the coronation tank is the Vishwa Shanti Stupa (pillar of peace), which is a major attraction in Vaishali. This monument is one of the highest in the world and has been built in collaboration with the Japanese government.
