Anathapindika's Stupa
Anathapindika's Stupa Shravasti, the oldest stupa in Saravasti in India, built by Anathapindika who was the chief lay disciple of Buddha. The meaning of his name is "feeder of the orphans or helpless". Originally, he was named as Sudatta. Anathapindika was known to be the most prestigious businessman and biggest follower of Buddha.

He bought some junk of Jeta Park from Prince Jeta, the son of King Prasenjeet. It is believed that he kept 1.8 million gold pieces in into orchard. Anathapindika upon death entered Tusita heaven or the heaven of the Bodhisattvas and is honored as the "foremost believer in kindness" besides his character. The first meeting of Sudatta with the Buddha was accomplished during the first year after Buddha's Enlightenment.
