Have you been working like a superhero at your job or stressed with the daily routine? It’s time to lay the cape at rest and take a few days off. Sasaram can be a perfect getaway for a rejuvenating experience. Sasaram, an ancient city in Bihar, is a hub of historical and religious places, making it a perfect site for a memorable getaway.
Sher Shah Suri's tomb, a 122 feet red sandstone tomb, is a noble specimen of Indo-Afghan style of architecture in India and is situated in the heart of an artificial lake in Sasaram. It is a must-visit location, considering how it appears as a magnificent ‘floating monument’ and is included in UNESCO World Heritage Sites (Tentative list).
Rohtasgarh Fort of Sher Shah Suri, another stunning location, is located in Dehri (38 kilometers south of Sasaram) with a history dating back to the 7th century AD. It is considered as one of the largest and strongest hill forts of India which houses various places of interest, dating back to different centuries. In addition, one must visit the Aina Mahal (the palace of the chief wife of Man Singh), Jama Masjid, and Habsh Khan’s mausoleum which is built in magnificent stucco style with hints of Rajputana style as well. Ganesh Temple is also located within half a kilometer from Man Singh’s Palace, which is a delight to the eyes. Also, you must visit the ‘Hanging House,’ as the locals call it- it has an unknown past and an interesting fable behind it. You can also visit the temple of Maa Tara Chandi, situated at a distance of a kilometer from the Chandan Shaheed Hill, which is full of hustle and bustle during the occasion of Dussehra.
Sasaram is also famous for Ashokan inscriptions, one of the thirteen Minor Rock Edicts, located in a cave of Kaimur hill. The inscription of 8 lines written on its walls in Archaic Brahmi Characters is worth seeing. There are several other monuments like Dhua Kund, Gupta Dham, Bhaluni Dham, and Tomb of Hasan Khan Sur called Sukha Roza which can be added to your list of travel.
When it comes to delicacies, Litthi Chokha is a popular street food that is easily available here and a must-have. In addition to that, note that the best time to visit Sasaram is from October to February, for a comfortable and enriching experience.
