Lomas Rishi Cave




Lomas Rishi Cave is one of the most interesting caves in the Barabar Hills at Gaya in Bihar. It is regarded as the first example of the famous Buddhist Chaitya arch style in India. The fašade of the cave has fine lattice work carving and the doorway is designed in Egyptian form. A large rectangular chamber with a remarkable glass-like polish is found in its interior.

Barabar Hills are about 20 km north of Gaya just off the Gaya- Patna road. The nearest airport is Gaya Airport.
