Undoubtedly Bihar has always been seen low in terms of tourism. Often tourists and travelers have never given the much-needed preference to this historical destination. But ironical Bihar holds one of the important places in history and was even once considered as the seat of prosperous ancient Indian kingdoms.
In time, Bihar tourism has developed it a lot and presented its rich culture and tradition on many platforms. Here we will be listing many such places which you might have heard or not but believe me Bihar has more than Gaya, Nalanda, and Rajgir. So, not wasting much time, let’s just go through the list of places which this place which has been unexplored.
1. Navlakha Palace: A ruined palace in Rajnagar near Madhubani district. The palace was built by Maharaja Rameshwar Singh. The palace has suffered destruction during an earthquake in 1934. The palace complex comprised of gardens, pond, and temples. This palace must be on the bucket list.
2. Vaishali: A small village Vaishali is famous as Buddhist pilgrimage. Another significance of this place is that it is the birthplace of Lord Mahavira, the founder of Jainism in India. It was at Vaishali that Lord Buddha announced his proximity to Nirvana.
3. Jalmandir: This place is located in Pawapuri and is considered very important for Jain devotees. It is believed that Lord Mahavira had breathed his last here. A white marble temple was constructed and it has remained an important Jain pilgrimage in Bihar. Watching the sunset from here is a view in itself.
4. Sher Shah Suri tomb: The tomb of Sher Shah Suri is in the Sasaram town and was built in memory of Emperor Sher Shah Suri, a Pathan from Bihar who defeated the Mughal Empire and founded the Suri Empire in northern India. He died in an accidental gunpowder explosion in the fort of Kalinjar on the 10th day of Rabi’ al-awwal.
5. Kanwar Lake Bird Sanctuary: Yes, you are reading it right. Bihar has bird sanctuary also and it is India’s largest freshwater Oxbow lake. Situated in Begusarai, Kanwar Lake Bird Sanctuary is reckoned to be the haven for 60 species of migratory birds.
6. Barabar Caves: These caves are the oldest surviving rock-cut caves in India, dating from the Maurya Empire, some with Ashokan inscriptions, located in the Makhdumpur region of Jehanabad district. These caves are situated in the twin hills of Barabar (four caves) and Nagarjuna (three caves). The sculptured surround to the entrance to the Lomas Rishi Cave is the earliest survival of the ogee shaped “Chaitra arch” or chandrashala.
