    Solution:

    The above statement is False.
    Monasteries or Viharas were built for monks and nuns, not common people. Buddhist and Jain monks travelled to distant places to give sermons to the people. They only stopped wandering during the rainy season as it was difficult to travel. As time passed, a growing number of the monks' and nuns' supporters felt the need for additional long-term housing. Therefore, monasteries were constructed. These served as the homes for monks who practised their faith. The monks remained in monasteries and meditated, which later became important centres of learning.
    The correct statement would be that during the ancient period, monasteries were built for monks and nuns to live.
