Gaya


Patna Vaishali Gaya Bodhgaya Nalanda Rajgir Galudih Jamshedpur

Bihar has some of the most sacred Buddhist and Hindu shrines. Gaya is one of the most important pilgrimage places for the Hindus. It is believed that a Hindu will reach heaven if his last rites are offered under the celebrated 'Akshayabat' or immortal banyan tree, standing in the yard of Vishnupad temple. Believed to be built on the footsteps of Vishnu, the grand temple was renovated by Ahalyabai, queen of Indore.  

How to get there

Pawapuri
In Pawapuri or Apapuri, 38 km from Rajgir and 90 km from Patna, all sins end for a devout Jain. Lord Mahavira breathed his last here and was cremated here. People took away not only the ashes but also the scooped out earth and thus a tank came into being. Now the famous Jalamandir marble temple stands at the site. There is another Jain temple here viz. Samosharan.

Parasnath hill
It is believed that 22' tirthankars' out of 24 attained salvation here and is one of the most sacred pilgrim centers for the Jains.

Call of the hills
The Chotanagpur plateau is one of the most beautiful areas in Bihar. Studded with hills 300 900m in altitude and covered with verdant virgin forests, this area of rivers, lakes, meadows and valleys is an ideal retreat of peace and beauty. Rich in wildlife, these forests are an anthropologist's delight, since the ancient lifestyle of the tribes like Santhal, Ho, Munda, Oraon, Koi, Chero, Kharia, Paharia has remained essentially unaltered.

Netarhat 
Called the 'Queen of Chotanagpur' this exquisite little hill station has fantastic sunrise and sunset. Situated 1127 m above sea level, it has beautiful waterfalls around, like Upper Ghagri and Lower Ghagri.

This is one of the Tiger Project Reserves. There are tree top towers, watch towers and ground level hideouts for professional photographers. February March and October - November are the best seasons and excellent accommodation is available here.

Jamshedpur
It is one of India's earliest planned cities and to this day beautifully maintained and managed, in spite of being an industrial township. Industrial giants like TISCO, TELCO are situated here. Surrounded by the Dolma hills, it has retained its hill station atmosphere.

Damodar Valley
Site of one of the earliest power projects, river Damodar is harnessed here in a massive network. Maithon. Panchet and Tilaiya are the major dams.

Monghyr
