Lalitgiri (Oriya: ଲଳିତଗିରି)(also known as Naltigiri) is a Buddhist complex in Odisha comprising major stupas and Monasteries (viharas), similar to Ratnagiri and, together with Ratnagiri and Udayagiri, part of Puspagiri University.

Numerous excavations by the Archaeological Survey of India (A.S.I.) have been conducted since 1985, and continue to this day.

A museum is to be built to display relic caskets Thought to contain bones of Gautama Buddha, and other archaeological finds for public display. The site was extensively excavated by the A.S.I. from 1985-92. The remains of a huge Stupa, and relic caskets consisting four containers made of khondalite, steatite, silver and gold were discovered along with other important structure and archaeological remains.
