Sasaram Travel Guide

                      
Sasaram Tours

Sasaram in Rohtas district of Bihar is a small town, 148 km from Patna. Traditionally it is believed to be named after , the sage Parashurama and the legendary King Sahatrabahu. Sasaram was also the birth place of Sher Shah Suri, who ruled Delhi from 1540 to 1545 AD. It is well known for the mausoleums built during his regime. The Grand Trunk road, the most notable feature of Sher Shah Suriís achievements, goes through Sasaram. The place is notably sought after for the beautifully sculpted tombs of Sher Shah Suri, his father and the architect who designed the monuments. These historic structures stand as mute testaments of the glory of a bygone era. Today apart from the historic significance, Sasaram has a thriving stone mining industry and is famous for the quality stone chips that are supplied all over India.

Prime Attractions of Sasaram (Sightseeing in Sasaram)

The famous red stone Tomb of Sher Shah Suri is the star attraction here. It stands 122 feet high, in the middle of a man made lake, which gives it a look of a floating monument.

The Tomb of Hasan Sur Khan, father of Sher Shah Suri is in a dilapidated state but retains the architectural beauty of the early Muslim rulers. Sukha Rauza is another tomb with a small pond, which can be visited.

The Maa Tara Chandi temple, dedicated to Goddess Kali is thronged by people during the month of Dusserah.

Visit the Samrat Ashoka Pillar in a cave near Chandan Shaheed in Kaimur hill.
