Bihar Sharif

Bihar Sharif is located on the banks of Panchanan River and Hiranya Parbat (mountain). The city name owes it to its Budhhist origin, Vihar(meaning Buddhist Monastery). On their travelogue to Nalanda University, Buddhist monks and scholars had a last stop in Vihars here, and City was called Bihar Shree (meaning place of greatest monastery). But city pre-dates Buddha, Lord Mahavir attained his Nirwana (worthy death) at Pawa in Vihar Shree in 527 BCE. The ancient Odantapuri University was established here in 7th century by Pal dynasty king Gopala 1. Acharya Sri Ganga of Vikramashila had been a student here.
