Hajipur is one of those cities of India which has connected the past and the present in a smooth transition over the years. Though scarce and scattered, Hajipur keeps coming back in the pages of Indian history - be it the time of Lord Buddha or the rule of Islam or the British era, in some way or other, Hajipur is always there. The district of Vaishali, of which Hajipur is the headquarter as well as the largest city, is known for being the place where Lord Gautama Buddha decided upon his final resting - nirvana after bodily death.
The land of Hajipur is dotted with many temples, mostly Hindu. Followers of both Vaishnavism and Shaivism, two significant sects of Hindu faith, visit this place for the many places of worship scattered all over the city. Nestled amidst stretches of agricultural lands and acres of banana plantation, these temples appeal to those for whom spirituality is at the core of travelling. Hajipur also has one of the longest bridges of Asia, stretching over the river Ganges for 5.75km.
