The remains of Jetavana and Savatthi were locally known as Sahet-Mahet. [[Alexander Cunningham]] used the ancient (6th century AD) accounts of Chinese pilgrim-monks to determine that Sahet-Mahet actually referred to Jetavana and [[Savatthi]].<ref>Arch. Survey of India, 1907-8, pp.81-131</ref>
 
Jetavana is currently a historical park, with remains of many ancient buildings such as monasteries, huts (such as the [[Gandhakuti]] and the [[Kosambakuti]]) and [[stupa]]s. In Jetavana is also located the second-holiest tree of Buddhism: the [[Anandabodhi Tree]]. A visit to Savatthi and Jetavana is part of the [[Buddhist Pilgrimage|Buddhist pilgrim route]] in North-India. The most revered place in Jetavana is the Gandhakuti, where Buddha used to stay. Jetavana is located at {{coord|27.509466|N|82.040073|E|format=dms|type:landmark_region:IN|display=inline,title}}.
