Ghora Katora lake is a small but beautiful and serene picnic spot near Rajgir. According to Hindu mythology, the king Jarasandha from Indian epic Mahabharata, had his stable here, hence the name Gohra Katora.

It is located near World Peace Pagoda. Surrounded by small hills the lake looks picturesque and makes for an ideal trip. Horse carts or tongas and bicycles help tourists reach it. One can enjoy boating here. It is advised to visit the place in the morning as the entry to the lake closes at 2pm. It is a very relaxing place and all one can hear is the sound of wind and water.
