Hirnay Parwat, Nalanda

Hirnay Parvat was also called Odantapuri or Uddandapura at the time of Pala dynasty. Founded in the 8th century by the Pala King Dharmpala, Hirnay Parwat used to be a buddhist vihara or garden located on the banks of the river Panchanan.

It has now been developed into a town by Bihar sharif, the headquarter of Nalanda district, 13 km away from the ruins of Nalanda. The Hirnay Parwat is more popular as Bari Pahari amongst locals.
