Located in the twin hills of Barabar and Nagarjuni, the Barabar Caves are believed to be one of the oldest surviving rock-cut caves belonging to the Mauryan era. These monolithic caves were created under Mauryan Emperor Ashoka’s rule for the Ajeevikas (Buddhist monks). Carved out of granite they have smooth interior walls which have an echo effect. Most caves have two chambers out of which the first was where worshippers would congregate and the second (internal chamber) was meant for a small stupa. The prominent caves of Barabar are Karna Chaupar, Sudama Cave, Lamarshi (Lomas Rishi) Cave, Vishwa Zopri Cave and Nagarjuni Caves.
