The Saptaparni Caves are situated on the Vaibhava Hill and are said to be the place where the first Buddhist Council were held. This council was held here after six months after the 'Mahaparinirvana' of Buddha. This council was attended by over 500 monks and was led by Buddha's chief disciple namely Maha Kashyapa. A Magadha ruler named Ajatshatru also built a Sabha Mandap in front of these caves, which was used for this assembly.
