THE UNATTRACTIVE TOWN WITH HISTORICAL ATTRACTIONS

Sasaram houses the grand and beautiful mausoleum of Sher Shah, the man known for building the Grand Trunk Road across the whole of North India, that included Pakistan at that time. The mausoleum is located in a beautiful lake and looks like a floating structure. Sasaram is 148 km from Patna

PRIME SITES-Mausoleum of Sher Shah Suri
It is one of two majestic Muslim monuments, which bear the distinctive heavy lines of the early Lodhi monuments of Delhi. The well-maintained five-storeyed, red sandstone mausoleum capped by a massive dome, stands in the middle of a 430-square-metre artificial lake. The 46m high dome has 22metre span, which is 4metres wider than the dome of the Taj Mahal. The tomb was once adorned by red, white, blue and yellow geometrical designs, and the dome, once white, topped with a golden lotus. At its centre, a large octagonal chamber contains the tomb itself, while pavilions mark each corner of the building and steps lead down to the water.

Tomb Of Hasan Sur Khan
Around 500m east, visible from the upper storeys of Sher Shah's mausoleum, is the tomb of his father, Hasan Sur Khan. Built in 1535, within a walled enclosure, it has been engulfed by the rustic town of Sasaram and is in a somewhat dilapidated condition. Despite its status as a protected monument, some of the flagstones are being removed.

EXCURSIONS
There are quite a few Muslim tombs at Maner at Dehri, 17 kms from Sasaram.
