  • Description

    Rajgir is in a pleasant valley, nearly 105 kms from the Capital city of Patna, and is supposed to be the first recorded capital of the India. The earlier name of the city was Raja Griha which literally means house of the Kings or the house of the royalty. It was a flourishing capital of the Magadh rulers during the time of Buddha in the 6th century B.C. It was during the time of the ruler Ajatshatru that the place flourished to become staunch follower of Buddhism. The Buddha frequented Raja Griha, seeking the solitude and tranquility of the Jivkamaravana monastery, preaching and meditating at the Griddhakuta hill. It was at this here that one of his celebrated followers the King Bimbisara was converted to Buddhism. Rajgir held the first Buddhist council at the Saptaparni caves where Lord Buddha's teachings were written down for the first time. <br />Today Rajgir is nothing more than a village. Some ruins those stand belonging to the ancient era have made this sleepy village in to one of the most revered pilgrimage places for Buddhists.

The Ajatshatru FortThe ruins of this ancient fort are seen today which was built in 6th century B.C. by the Magadh King Ajatshatru himself.
The Vishwa Shanti StupaSituated on the hills of Griddhkuta, where Lord Buddha would climb daily for meditation is the Vishwa Shanti Stupa. It offers a splendid view of the hills around and the main attraction is the aerial ropeway. The Saptaparni caves and the hot water springs are also nearby.\r\n\r\nThe Jivakavana and the Venuvana are also the ancient sites worth a visit. Rajgir also has some Jain temples where one can reach by trek alone. These beautiful Jain temples are 26 in number and are made of white stone.
Also known as the Vulture peak, this was the Buddha’s favorite retreat in Rajagaha and the scene for many of his discourses.
Disciples either climb the peak or go by the rope way to the peak.

Delhi-Patna-Nalanda-Rajgir-Bodhgaya-Varanasi-Delhi

An evolution of man from a normal human to an elevated soul leading the path to salvation is the primary guideline of Buddhism. The doctrine that was preached by Lord Buddha was not meant to be a religion but a path to lead the life. Buddha preached the four noble truths and the eight-fold path to salvation and attaining nirvana. Today one can seek for mental peace at these places where once the great soul left his footmarks.

Sonepur Mela starts in November and lasts for next 15 days to one month every year. It draws more than 600,000 visitors to the Sonepur. One of the major attractions of the fair is the sight of scores of elephants that are beautifully decorated and lined up for sale. This is the only place in India or probably in the world where largest number of elephants are traded at one place. The buyers are mainly government forest department officials. You may even find the trading of large number of horses, goats, buffaloes, donkeys, ponies and dogs etc. along with elephants and other household cattle. In his very first sermon Lord Buddha put forth the Middle Way, the Four Noble Truths, and the Eightfold Path - the message spread rapidly, penetrating caste and class barriers; today Buddhism is a way of life in large parts of the world, its message of peace and tolerance speaks to us all. Buddha preached that the way to salvation is not dependent on God but on understanding the way things really are for all living beings subject to desire. We take you on a journey to places associated with important events in Buddha's life. Prince Siddhartha was born at Lumbini, became Buddha, the Enlightened One, at Bodhgaya, gave his first sermon at Sarnath, lived the greater part of his monastic life in Sravasti, and attained Nirvana at Kushinagar.
