This is a major tourist attraction in Rajgir. This cave resembles Mauryan sanctuaries signifying that it is one of the oldest caves in Bihar. As you enter the cave you could see two chambers which were uniquely built out of one single rock. Tourists would be amazed to see the doorway which has treasure of King Bimbisara. Inscriptions in Sankhlipi or shell script is a clue for opening the doorway. Intricate designs of seated and standing human beings could be observed in second chambers.
