Lord Buddha’s Favorite Retreat  Griddhakuta(Vulture’s peak) got its name either because it was shaped like a vulture or because it was frequented by vultures.  A potter’s son made a beautiful hut at the foot of the hill for Buddha. It is said that Buddha lived here for several years and preached the famous Saddarmapundarika Sutra.  Visit this sacred place. #VisitBihar #BiharMuseum
