Ukkacela (now Hajipur) is very close to Patna, and houses what is believed to be the northern Ananda stupa which houses half of Ananda's relics. The form of the stupa is very visible, but there is a Hindu temple to Ram on its top now. A few old Bodhi trees remain. To get to Hajipur we crossed over the Ganges on one of the longest single river bridges in the world.
