Pretshila Hill

Pretshila Hill situated at Gaya is about 10 km from the Ramshila hill. There is a lake known as Brahma Kund just below this beautiful hill, where the people take bath and offer Pind Dan, a ritual done to satisfy the departed souls of ancestors and parents. There is a beautiful temple at its top known as Ahilya Bai Temple, built by the queen of Indore in 1787. The unique architecture and magnificent sculptures make the temple an important tourist attraction.
