Ancient tradition say that after the Buddha Sakyamouni Parinirvana , its remains were shared between the 8 kings that came to pay hommage :
- Ajâtashatru
(King of Magadha),
- Lichchavî of Vaishâlî,
- Shâkya of Kapilavastu,
- Buli from Allakappa,
- Koliya of Ramagama,
- the Brahmins of Vethadipa,
- Malla of Pâvâ
- Malla from Kusinâgar

Some relics were also given to the King of Nâgas

The selection of Stupas i offer is composed of pieces of good quality made of noble materials (glass, sandal wood, brass, stones...), as much as possible i also tried to offer Stupas handmade by artisans instead of industrialy made Stupas.
