Votive Stupa at Thotlakonda Buddhist Complex in Visakhapatnam by dreamVizag

Votive Stupas are stupas constructed out of brick or stone, to house votive offerings. These are minor stupas compared to the main ones which housed holy relics of Buddha or one of his followers. This is a typical Votive Stupa of the Thotlakonda Buddhist Complex in Visakhapatnam.
