Bimbisar jail


King Bimbisara was imprisoned here by his son Ajatsastru. It was chosen by king for his incarceration as he could see Lord Buddha climbing up to his mountain retreat atop the Griddhakuta hill. There is a clear view of the Japanese Pagoda. One can visit the stupa of peace built on the top of the hill.
