Caves have always been a center of mystery and interest to humans. 

Barabar caves located in the hilly area of ​​Makhdampur, 25 km from Jehanabad district of Bihar, are also no less than a mystery. 

These caves were built during the reign of Maurya dynasty. 

They have the credit of being the oldest man-made cave in the world. 

I came here for the first time in 2013 and after that every time a new aspect has been revealed.

There is also a temple of Siddheshwarnath, the first of the nine Swayambhu Naths, at this place. 

People who have faith in religion and work come here in large numbers. 

It is said that the Baba Siddhanath temple was built during the 7th century by Bana Raja who was the father-in-law of Raja Jarasandha of Rajgir. 

That is why this place has historical as well as religious importance.

 The Barabar and Nagarjuna mountains are counted among the oldest and historical mountains of India and this place was once the kingdom of Magadha, 

hence the 1100 feet high Barabar and Nagarjuna mountains are also called the Himalayas of Magadha. 

In these caves lived monks of the Aajeevika sect.

Barabar mountains are made of granite.

 These mountains are strong due to the high amount of hematite, magnetite and iron ore. 

These mountains are also credited for the victory of Emperor Ashoka, as this granite was used in the manufacture of weapons for his army.

The Nagarjuna caves are also located at a distance from the Barabar caves.

 They were built by King Dasharatha, the grandson of Emperor Ashoka. 

They are seven in number, hence they are known as 'Satghar'.

 Apart from these caves, there is also Sitamarhi cave at a distance of 13 miles from Rajgir, which has been made by cutting a granite rock under the earth, not a mountain. 

It is also known as the Mauryan Cave. 

Taking inspiration from the construction of these caves in the country, 

many chaitya houses were built in western India over a period of time. 

That is why the caves of Barabar and Nagarjuna are of great importance. 

This place falls on the way from Patna, the capital of Bihar to Bodh Gaya. 

Whenever you visit Bihar, you must visit this place.
