ODIYAN GARDENS

Protected by a perimeter fence, 144 acres are landscaped with eighteen gardens, eight orchards, four man-made lakes, and two vegetable gardens. The sacred environs of each temple is ornamented with a formal garden. Bordering the Cherry Mall, the Mandala Garden contains an aviary and hundreds of rhododendrons and azaleas. The beautiful sanctuary of Vairocana Garden, standing at the highest point of the Odiyan land, contains a 27-foot-long statue of the Parinirvana Buddha and an enormous bronze Vajra Bell that is rung during ceremonies.
