Overview

Buxar, a city of Bihar, is one of the most important areas of Buxar district. The name Buxar is said to be derived from VyaghraSar, which has its roots in mythology. According to popular folklore, sage Rishi Durvasha cursed Rishi Vedshira to a tiger face. Rishi Vedshira’s face was restored after he bathed in a holy tank. This holy tank was named VyaghraSar. 


The city of Buxar lies to the south of River Ganges and shares its border with the state of Uttar Pradesh. It is spread across an area of 1, 62,380 hectares. 

Buxar was established in 1991, but the history of the region goes back a long time. The city saw two major battles in its history, with the Battle of Buxar being the more famous one. The first battle was fought between Sher Shah Suri and Humayun in AD 1539. It was won by Sher Shah Suri. 

The city has its share of mythology too. According to Indian scriptures, Buxar was the seat of gods and saints and was often the battleground for wars between gods and demons. It is believed that the city of Buxar goes back to the period even before Ramayana. 

In fact, the history of the city forms its major tourist attraction. There is Chausagarh, where Sher Shah won the battle against Humayun; there is the Sitaram Upadhyay Buxar Museum which has relics from the past and there is the Shergarh Fort, where Sher Shah spent his
childhood.  

Best time to visit the destination October to April.
