India, Bihar, Rajgir

Derived from Rajgriha - ‘Abode of the kings’, Rajgir has witnessed several episodes of Buddha’s life. Here only Lord Buddha preached various sermons, proselytized Emperor Bimbisar at the Griddhakoota - Vulture Hill and meditated many times. 

The Jivekarmavan monastery at Rajgir was the favorite residence for Buddha. The teachings of Lord Buddha were penned down at Rajgir and it was also the venue for the first Buddhist Council. Such is the reverie of Rajgir which is now a prime Buddhist Pilgrim spot.
