Overview of Rajgir

Name ‘RAJGIR’ came from ‘Rajagriha’ meaning ‘house of the king’ , ‘royal house’, or ‘the home of royalty’ the word Rajgir might have its origin in its plain literal meaning, ‘royal mountain’.

Rajgir (historically known as girivraj) is an ancient city and a notified area in Nalanda District in the Indian state of Bihar. The city of Rajgir (ancient Rājagṛha; pali: Rājagaha) was the first capital of the Magadhakingdom, a state that would eventually evolve into the Mauryan Empire. City finds mention in India's greatest literary epic, the Mahabharata, through its king Jarasandha. Its date of origin is unknown, although ceramics dating to about 1000 bc have been found in the city. The famous 2,500-year old cyclopean wall (cyclopean masonry) is located in the city. This area is also notable in Jainism and Buddhism. It was the birthplace of the 20th Jain tirthankarMunisuvrata and is closely associated with the Arihant Mahavira and Gautama Buddha. Both lord Mahavira and lord Buddha taught their believes in Rajgir during the 6th and 5th century BC. The ancient Nalanda University was located in the vicinity ofRajgir, and the contemporary Nalanda University named after it was founded in 2010 at Rajgir.
