This postage stamp does not depict incidents related to Visakhapuja Day but it is included in the Visakhapuja postage stamp set because it presents another important incedent that happened after the Lord Buddha had attained Elightenment. The setting is one of the Four Holy Places in the Lord Buddha's Life, where he taugth devout Buddhists to realize the sense of urgency in life so as to understand the life and death cycle and to seek the path that would lead them to the growth of the mind.

The Dhammekka Stupa is a place for Dhamma preaching that will lead to freedom from life's entanglements. It is an ancient stupa in the shape of an alms bowl turned upside down, decorated with a cone-shaped top. The stupa, built in the reign of King Asoka the Great, is approximately 80 feet in height and 120 feet in diameter. It is believed to be the place where the Lord Buddha preached due to Five Disciples one of whom, Konthunya Brahmin, was the first to archive Enlightenment and become ordained the first Buddhist monk. This was used as a place of communion for sixty of the disciples of the Lord Buddha. They were the first group of Buddhist monks who travelled to different parts to disseminate the words of the Lord Buddha.
