Jarasandha Ka Akhara, Rajgir Overview

Jarasandha Ka Akhara, located near the Vaibhava Hill, was previously a wrestling arena and place for martial arts training for the armies which stood against Lord Krishna and the Yadava clan for King Jarasandha of Magadha. The great battle between Bheema and Jarasandha took place right here. The battle lasted for a month, according to legend, and in the end Bheem tore Jarasandha's body into half to defeat and kill him. Now a deserted ruins with overgrown flora, it is a favourite spot for picnickers.
