CM's pilgrimage to Indrasaila Guha (Parwati)

22nd January 2012.
We are grateful to Hon'ble Chief Minister of Bihar, Shri Nitish Kumar Ji and Hon'ble Member of Parliament, Shri. R.C.P Singh ji for taking out time from their busy schedule to visit the historical place of Parwati.The isolated hill of Parwati is the place where the Buddha dialogued with the God Indra. The discourse is now preserved in the Sakkapanha Sutta.

This place was a very important pilgrimage center for the followers of the teaching of the Buddha. Fahein (5th century CE) and Xuanzang (7th century CE), both paid their pilgrimage here and have mentioned this place in great detail. Hon'ble CM has directed officials to develop this place so that pilgrims and followers of the teachings of the Buddha can once gain make their pilgrimage to the place.
