Two man-made ancient caves in Rajgir, Bihar

Rajgir in Bihar’s Nalanda district has two man-made ancient caves. Mauryan artefacts have been found outside one of them, and inscriptions in the language or symbols of the Gupta dynasty have been found at the entrance of the other.

Historical documents state that these caves were built by Jain monks in the fourth century BCE. Outside these caves, Lord Vishnu’s statue and Jain artefacts have been associated with Hindu and Jain religions. Some historians believe that they are related to Buddhism.

Bimbisara hid his treasure by making a cave

According to historians, Bimbisara, the founder of the Harayak dynasty and the emperor of Magadha, had a great affinity for gold and silver.

He ascended the throne in 543 BC at the age of 15. He built the Rajgriha, which later came to be known as Rajgir. It is said that Bimbisara had a lot of gold, to keep it, he built a twin cave in the foothills of Vibharagiri mountain.

Only Bimbisara knew the treasures kept in this cave and the secret of reaching the cave’s secret door. In due course, Bimbisara’s son Ajatashatru imprisoned his father for power and became the emperor of Magadha himself.

Ajatashatru either killed Bimbisara or committed suicide. No one has solved the mystery of the treasure after his death.

According to the Puranas, the treasure of Jarasangha is hidden here

A story related to the treasure of the cave is associated with the Mahabharata period. According to the Vayu Purana, Magadha was ruled by Shiva devotee Jarasandha’s father Brihadratha, about two and a half thousand years before the rule of the Haryanka dynasty.

Jarasandha became Emperor after Brihadratha. Intending to become Chakravarti Emperor, he set out to defeat 100 kingdoms. Jarasandha also defeated more than 80 kings and captured their property.

He hid this property by building a cave in the foothills of Vibharagiri mountain. According to the Vayu Purana, Jarasandha reached the goal of defeating a hundred kings, before the Pandavas invited him to battle.

Jarasangha fought a battle with Bhima for 13 days. Bhima killed Jarasandha due to the tricks given by Lord Shri Krishna. With his death, the secret of his treasure kept in the cave was also buried.

The cave has been kept sealed, the mouth of the cave has been closed for thousands of years

Two large rooms were built in the Rajgir Cave alike, in which the treasure was kept in one and the soldiers guarding it in the other. Keeping the treasure in the cave, its mouth is covered with a big rock, which no one has opened till today.

All attempts to reach the treasury failed

It is said that there is a way to reach the treasury, but no one has reached there. During British rule, the British tried to go inside the cave by exploding with cannon shells but failed.

There have been many attempts from time to time, but the truth of the cave has remained a mystery to date. There are also some secret inscriptions on the wall of the cave, which are yet to be read. The locals believe that whoever reads these inscriptions will find a way to the treasure.
