Mahaparinirvana Temple or Nirvana Temple symbolizes Buddhist architecture style. Buddhist pilgrims all over the year visit the shrine. The temple is built on the same place where Lord Buddha had attained Mahaparinirvana.

The temple is a one-room temple and is believed to be built around the fifth century.
