Excursion tour of Rajgir & Nalanda from Bodhgaya

Rajgir has got the name from Raj Griha meaning the abode of the king.  Rajgir is one of the most important tourist places in India. Rajgir has its own very scenic beauty surrounded by five holy hills, the picturesque little town of Rajgir is important for Buddhists as well as Jains. Here the two rock-cut caves were the favorite retreats of the Buddha and it was on this hill that he preached two of his most famous sermons. Nalanda is located 14 kms. from Rajgir.Built on a hallowed site where the Buddha had often stayed, Nalanda is one of the world's oldest living cities. The Buddhist University of Nalanda, once the most prestigious center of learning in Asia, was built here. The evocative ruins of its monasteries and temples still convey a vivid impression of the serene and ordered life of contemplation and learning that prevailed here.
