Bimbisara's Jail

Bimbisara's Jail is the site where King Bimbisara was put in prison by his son and heir, Ajatashatru. The captive king chose this place for his imprisonment because from here, he could see Lord Buddha climbing up the Griddhakuta Hill to his mountain retreat. From this spot, one can also get a clear view of the Japanese Pagoda or Shanti Stupa built atop the hill.
