The history of Sasaram is very old. This state is settled in the south of Bihar and is surrounded by the Kaimur hills and the Son and Kev river. There are many such historical places here that keep travelers from far away to see. Many buildings of Hindu and Muslim religions have been built here. Sasaram is the main and important area of Kashi State. Many kings have ruled here. Sahastrabahu was the king of the kashi kingdom. Sasaram is the place where there was a war between Parasuram and Raja Sahastrabhu, and after this fight, the name was kept by adding the name of both the Sahasrabhu = Sahastra and Parasurama = Ram, together with Sahastraram after some time it will changed to sasaram. Sher Shah Suri was born in Sasaram too. Who grew up and ruled northern India (northern part of India, Pakistan and Afghanistan) for 5 years. Later, the Mughal Emperor Himayun defeated them and established the Mughal rule over the state.

The tomb of Sher Shah Suri is on this, built by the Red stone, which is between the middle of a man-made pond. This building is an outstanding example of India-Afghan art. The tomb of Sher Shah Suri’s father Hasan Khan Suri is also build after a walking distance, Which is made in green fields of Sasaram’s Sherganj. The Grand Trunk Road built by Sher Shah Suri, which shows the excellent and rich science of the era. Sasaram comes in Rohtas district of Bihar. This district is the workplace of Satyavadi raja Harishchandra. The name of this district is Rohtas named after the name of his son Rohtasva. Rohtas district is also known as rice bowl of bihar because this area have higher production of rice. Only a few people will know about Haji Begum. Haji Begum was the “Jhansi ki rani” of Bihar. In the Revolution of 1857, he fought with the British and received Veergati. Even today, his descendants are living in Mohalla Pathan Toli and her sword is kept safe even today.

FRONT VIEW OF SHER SAH TOMB

Tomb of Sher Shah Suri :- The tomb of Sher Shah Suri is named in the UNESCO World Heritage Center. This Tomb is located in the middle of Sasaram, made of red stone. This building is a unique blend of Indian-Afghan mixed arts. This building is built in the middle of a pond and there is always water in the pond. It is a 150 feet tall structure that is covered with a dome above. It is an excellent building built in the 16th century. This is India’s second largest mausoleum, which is why tourists are drawn to here.

Rohtasgarh

Rohtasgarh

Rohtasgarh :- Rohtasgarh is a magnificent fort built in the 7th century which is a sample of the amazing workmanship of that time. It was built by Satyawadi Raja Harish Chandra ji. It is called Rohtas durg in the local language. It is about two hours away from Sasaram, a small village near Rasulpur. This fort is built on the hill and the Son river flows beneath that hill. Here the view of the valley above the fort is very attractive. To reach this fort, you have to climb up to an hour long mountain climbing. Although this area is affected by the Naxalites,but without any difficulty, the tourists come to roam here and saw  the beauty of the old artifacts here.
Jama Masjid and Samadhi of  Habsh Khan: – The mosque is built on a few distances on the outer side of the palace. Here is the samadhi of Habsh Khan and Sufi Sultan which is a sample of Rajputana art. In Rohtas, many Rajputs have ruled, so that the artwork here shows a glimpse of Rajputana rule.

Ganesh temple
Ganesh Temple

Ganesh temple :- A temple is built on the other side of Man Singh Mahal. In this temple, idol of Lord Ganesha is established. This temple is very old and its structure has become very bad condition . No one comes forward to take care of this temple and these historic structures will soon turn into a Khandahar. This temple was also built in Rajputana period. But its condition has become very tragic.

Devi Temple and Rohtasan Temple

Devi Temple and Rohtasan Temple: – There are 2 temples in the North-East, far away from the fort, from which Rohtas is a Shiva temple which is in a very shabby state and there is no government view on it. After some time, many historical buildings of Sasaram will not be able to see us. The second temple is dedicated to the goddess Durga, which is devoted to Durga, but the idol has been stolen here in the courtyard, and since this has not been known yet, the temple is lying idle, but the temple building is in its proper condition. The main part of the temple is to reach 84 stairs, due to which this temple is also called in the local language by the name of chaurashan Siddhi.

Devi Temple

Mother Tara Chandi Temple

TARA CHANDI

Mother Tara Chandi Temple :- This temple is situated about 1 km from Sasaram. There is always a tutor here, this is a proven bench. Here the pure demanded by the pure and innocent mind has always come true. This place is well connected with the paved road and easily accessible from NH 2. Without the visit of Maa Taranchi, the journey here is incomplete. This temple is dedicated to Mother Kali, this temple is a picturesque place surrounded by hills of Kaimur and surrounded by forests, where we feel and experiences peace of mind after seeing Maa Kali. There are many types of vehicles available to you from Sasaram to get here.
MAA TARACHANDI

Tomb of Hasan Khan Suri

TOMB OF HASAN KHAN SURI

Tomb of Hasan Khan Suri : – Hasan Khan Suri was the father of Sher Shah Suri, and after his death, his mausoleum was built by Sher Shah Suri in Sasaram. This mausoleum lies between the green grasslands near the Sher Shah Suri tomb and the Indo Afghan art combination is unique . There are 4 gates in this tomb and there is no fee to roam in it. This is the second attraction of the building here. This tomb was built in the seventeenth century. The artworks created in this tomb are very awesome. Here, the local people call it Sukh-rosa also.
Dhua Kund

MAGHAR KUND

Dhua Kund and Maghar Kund : – There is 2 waterfalls in Sasaram, which is made from rivers coming from the Kaimur hills, these waterfalls are not very big but they look very beautiful. Here people come to be considered a picnic with their family and here you will find people bathing in a waterfall. Near this waterfall, there is a fair on the next day of Rakhi which is even more in this place, although these places are not full of crowds. The view here is even more pleasant in the monsoon. It seems like in the monsoon, the Kaimur hills have become young again. The green trees around and the crisp mind of wet clay compel them to stay the same. Here are the factories of Stone Chip and Mining, which are broken in small stone and supplied to the whole of Bihar.

Gupteeshwar or Gupta Dham

Shiv Mandir

Gupteeshwar or Gupta Dham :- This Dham is situated about 20 kilometers away from Sasaram. To go here, you have to go through Rehal, Panari Ghat and Khoani Ghat. The way to go here is very inaccessible and full of difficulties. Gupta Dham is a famous place here. It is said that Lord Shiva had hidden in this cave to escape Bhasmasur and Lord Shiva got out after only after killing Bhasmasur by Lord Vishnu. As the name implies, this place is very secretive. The devotees come here from distant places to visit Bhole Shankar of this cave. To reach here, 5 mountains and the river Durgawati have to cross 5 times. The devotees come here to water the Shiva in Savannah, bihar, jharkhand. The height of this cave is 12 feet and 18 feet wide. This cave burned because of its burnings being black, but many did not know when it was burnt but according to legend, the cave was burnt due to Bhasmasur. You will not find any means to go there. You have to reach this cave on foot.

Tutuleshwari Bhawani Waterfall

Tutuleshwari Bhawani Waterfall

tutuleshwari bhawani temple and jharna

Tutuleshwari Bhawani Waterfall: – Tutuleeshwari Bhavani Temple is very excellent and close to the nearest. It is said that mother Tutulevari had appeared himself here. Here the NH 119 is connected to the place. Here you can easily go from your means or go with a tumpu. The view here is very romantic and the waterfall here is not considered wrong if it is called the Kamptee Falls of Bihar. But here the State Government is not doing anything special if it is taken care of, it can also be developed as a well-known place of worship.
