1. Place(Proper Noun-Neuter) Vaishali, Pali Vesali, Vaishali: city of ancient India, north of Patna, northwestern Bihar state, on the Gandak River. In antiquity Vaishali was the capital of the Licchavi republic and was closely associated with the early histories of both Buddhism and Jainism. Roads connected it with Rajagriha to the south and Kapilavastu and Shravasti to the north. Mahavira, the founder of Jainism, was born in Vaishali and spent much time there. The Buddha also visited the city on many occasions. Its several important monasteries and shrines were described by the Chinese pilgrim Faxian in the 5th century ce. After the death of the Buddha (c. 483 bce), the second great council of Buddhists was held at Vaishali to provide rules of conduct. পাটনা (গংগা)ৰ উত্তৰে থকা গণ্ডক নদীৰ পাৰত এখন পুৰণি সাম্ৰাজ্য৷ বুদ্ধই কেইবাবাৰো ভ্ৰমণ কৰা ঠাই৷ মহাবীৰৰ জন্ম স্থান৷ বৰ্তমান বহুতো ঐতিহাসিক সমল থকা ঠাই৷
