Barabar Caves, Bodhgaya

Home » Destinations » Bodhgaya » Attractions » Barabar Caves

Dating back to the Mauryan Empire, the Barabar Caves are the oldest surviving rock-cut caves in the country. Most caves at Barabar have two chambers, carved wholly out of granite, with an exceedingly polished internal surface and an echo effect.

The four major caves are Karan Chaupar, Lomas Rishi, Sudama and Visva Zopri, each of which has magnanimous arches, very rare in ancient times. The caves are a fine example of rock- cut architecture.
