A Trip to Bhagalpur

I had been to Bhagalpur by train in the month of August 2016. Bhagalpur is a must-visit in the tourism circuit of Bihar. The must-visit attractions around Bhagalpur include the Mandar Hill, Vikramshila University and Vikramshila Setu. The Mandar Parvat is a small mountain located at an elevation of 700 feet. Vikramshila University was one of the two centres of Buddhist learning in ancient India. It had an equal footing with the Nalanda university. The Vikramshila Setu is built across the Ganges river and named after the Vikramshila University.

Bhagalpur -the silk city is an awesome place to live it is a small city but you can find everything to delight yourself. People of Bhagalpur are so lovely and friendly. I'm in love with this awesome city. Transport system is the backbone of the city. The city is an educational hub of nearby village children.

Superb place with delicious food

I visited Bhagalpur for marriage ceremony of my friend. After marriage ceremony, I decided to visit famous places in Bhagalpur. I visited Vikramshila Ruins, Vasupujya Bhagwan Mahavir Jain Mandir, Mandar Hill, Ghuran Peer Baba, Ajgaivinath Temple. I ate Makka Roti and Channa Saag, Litti Choka, Soan Papdi, Methi ladoo, Chat, Sweet Curd. Makka roti, Chana Saag and Methi Ladoo were very tasty. So, I recommend others to must visit Bhagalpur and must taste the food.

Peace and calm place to visit

A peaceful environment where you can find a pleasant environment. Nice place in Bihar. It is a place of great Saint satguru maharshi menhi paramhans ji maharaj. It is situated at the bank of ganga river where you can enjoy boating. Here is also a ancient time monument which will attract you. A wonderful garden where you can enjoy with your family & friends.

Bhagalpur - the silk city

Bhagalpur, once a retreat for health change has been featured in numerous novels and movies like devdas & apharan. It is also called the silk city, famous for Bhagalpuri silk and milk.

The present city is a dark shadow of the past. The NH 80 passes through the city. Perhaps one of the worst maintained national highways in India. The bhagalpur airport has seen more cows than planes. Horrible is a good word to describe the road and power conditions.

There is nothing to see in Bhagalpur that would attract tourism. However, it might be used as a stopover for visiting the ruins of Vikramshila university (more than 1200 years old constructed during the pala dynasty), about 45 kms from here. The sandy's compound, a huge open space offers the lungs of the city. A good place to take a stroll.

For staying overnight, nihar, atithi palace, panchwati, bhavna international, rajhans are some of the preferred choices and for quenching a glutton, the stretch between ghantaghar and khalifabagh chawk (the commercial area) houses some of them like big byte, metro mirchi, royal durbar, khana khazana, mughal darbar, rajhans. The adarsh japlpaan in variety chawk area is favourite among vegetarians. However, one who likes chicken - rice should definitely make a trip to sabour station, 11 kms from bhagalpur to have a bite in a local shop. It has no name, although mere mention of a sabour chicken will land you there.

One must remember that for commuting within the city, cycle rickshaws and auto rickshaws are the only option available. Bhagalpur has a sort of extreme climate with chilling cold and scorching heat in winter and summer respectively. Monsoons should be avoided as the roads turn out to be a nightmare.

The underdog from Bihar

To experience the truly rustic milieu from the hinterlands of south Bihar, one must experience Bhagalpur and the nearby places.

Must visit places:

1. The only gigantic dolphin sanctuary in India
2. The rock cut temples at Kahalgaon
3. Mandar hills
4. Ajgaibinath temple at Sultanganj
5. Jain mandir
6. Mehi asram
7. Bihar yoga school, munger( around 55-6 km from bhagalpur)

Local food and shopping:

Cuisine is similar to that of rest of Bihar with a bit of influence from Bengal. You can have samosas and chats (and they really are great). Sweets like rosagulla and barfi are must haves. Nice eating joints include adarsh jalpan, balaji sweets( near the historic budhanath temple).

You can look for tasar bhagalpuri silk products. They are all locally made and yes, they are plain awesome. Beware of touts. You can directly visit those silk mills in and around nathnagar to get your stuffs at reasonable rates. I personally enjoyed the serenity offered all around. Those strolls along the bank of river ganga is forever etched in my memory. I also enrolled myself for a short term yoga course at the international yoga school in monghyr. It was too good.

Mandar hill (around 45 km to south) was used to churn the ocean according to hindu mythology, the place is secluded but great for introspection and personal appraisal (you know what i mean with no one around to disturb you and sanctity-in -the-air kind of feel). It's absolutely must visit. The place is a bit offbeat for regular fun seeking crowd, but if you really want to experience India at level that is soul enriching, then bhagalpur is a must visit point.

P. S. - try visiting the place alone without partners or friends, who knows you may get enlightened along the way :P :)

Nice place - must visit

Great place to revisit ancient India, reached nearest railway station kahalgaon from their private vehicle to this site. Vikramshila was founded in 8th century so you will get glimpse of importance of education during that time. It was one of the largest Buddhist universities. We can see various stupa and wall carvings of various ancient gods. There are various monastery, or residence for the Buddhist monks. It was big enough to accumulate more than 1000 of pupils. Nice place, do visit if anyone gets chance.
