Gaya Kupa and Gay Sir Vedi (site 8)
Gaya Kupa Vedi is identified as the navel of the Gayasura.
South-west of Vishnupada shrine
Pinda-dana at the Gaya-kupa
It is one of the pinda offering shrine. All the images seem out of place and seem to indicate the pattern prevalent in Gaya of bringing sculptural pieces from other places to establish these shrines. Are there any other reasons for adding these sculptures to pinda-dana shrines?
3 old sculptures within a small yellow-red shrine. There is a tree within the complex and a sculpture is placed on one side. Lastly, there is a well where the pilgrims offer the pinda.
The shrine is in active worship and hence protected.
