In addition, on a recent trip to India I discovered that the Buddha was a stairclimber! Well, sort of; the Buddha liked to meditate at Vulture Peak and he had to climb a steep hill to get to the top. Today there are stairs up this steep hill to Vulture Peak; it is roughly equivalent to climbing 1,500 stairs. In the 10th century a King called the Maha Bodhi temple (holiest place of Buddhism) the stairway to heaven.
