The Mandar Hills are located at a distance of 30 km from the city of Bhagalpur and carry mythological significance for the city. They are based on 800 ft high granite hill.

Experience the ultimate serenity

Visit to experience catharsis, totally soul enriching. You get to experience the ultimate serenity owing to its seclusion from the hustle and bustle of urbanity. According to Hindu myth, the hill was used to churn the ocean. Facilities available are bare minimum, so come prepared and try wrapping it off before sunset because area is not good.
