The former capital of the erstwhile Magadha Empire, Rajgir offers you the valor and vigor of great Kings. The old city of Rajgir made a flourishing development during the sixth century. As a podium of Buddha and Jain preaching, Rajgir adorns a predominant position in the cultural history of ancient India.

Encircled by seven Hills, this place is believed to be the retreating spot of Lord Buddha in rainy season. Rajgir has witnessed some of the great sermons of Buddha and Mahavira and it was here that the first Buddhist Council was convened after the nirvana of Buddha.

One of the important cultural meets of Bihar is the Rajgir Dance festival that exhibits classic performances of veteran artists of classical and folk fields. This rocky terrain with lush greenery and verdant landscape is full of gushing hot springs and stunning monuments. Its pictorial locations and holy spots make it a hot destination of both tourists and devout.
