On the eastern flank of the mountain is Nagarjuna’s meditation cave and the spring he brought forth. Very close on the north sides are the stupas of Shakyamuni’s father, Suddhodaha and his mother Maya Devi. On the eastern side of the peak is the place of Buddha Makhya [Mahe, the Buffalo Buddha]. Here is the soil which halumanjhu [Hanuman], the monkey king brought Vulture Peak. There are five stupas here. Today, there is Tibetan Charnal ground here.
