At a distance of approximately 15 km from Bodh Gaya, the Dungeswari hills form a picturesque backdrop for the handful shrines and ancient Stupas which surround the cave which is believed to have protected prince Gautama for six long years before he finally left for Bodh Gaya and attained enlightenment. The prince had left all his earthly belongings and had accepted a life of suffering and misery.

However, the six years spent in the cave proved futile since the prince was disillusioned and moved on to other places in search of true knowledge. Situated along the river Phalgu these hills and the cave find a proud mention in the travel logs of Fa Hein as well as Huen Tsang.
