Kaun Haara Ghat
The Kaun Haara Ghat is one of the main attractions of Hajipur, not so much for its current existence as much as for the ancient legend associated with it. The very famous fight between the Gaja elephant and the Graah crocodile is said to have been fought here, and the place got its name from everyone asking 'kaun haara?' or 'who lost (the fight)'' This is one of the most significant events of Hindu mythology, related to the stories of Lord Vishnu. A pictographic depiction of this fight can be seen all over the city of Hajipur - it is like an emblem to the place.
Deep Narayan Singh Museum
Located right in the heart of Hajipur at Gandhi Ashram, the museum named after the late Chief Minister of Bihar was established in 1979 by the Directorate of Archaeology and Museum. Among the collection are weaponry, coins and artefacts from the Mauryan and Gupta era, both of which prospered around the then seat of power Pataliputra, now Patna. It also has blow-ups of local freedom fighters. It provides an important insight into Bihar's past and present.
Ramchaura Mandir is a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Rama located at Rambhadra near Helabazar, Hajipur. The folklore says that the temple stands here since the days of Ramayana and Lord Rama himself blessed the place with his presence on his way to Janakpur, where his footprints are worshipped by his devotees. Ram Navami is a huge and important festival here, for obvious reasons, and it is celebrated with lots of enthusiasm.
Mahatma Gandhi Setu
Mainly used for transportation between north and South Bihar, the Mahatma Gandhi Bridge also provides a brilliant scenic view of both the banks of river Ganges here, all rich and lush green with agriculture and banana plantations. The bridge connects Hajipur with Patna and with a length of 5.75 km, is one of the longest river bridges of Asia, and the second longest one of India. A walk from one side of this bridge to another is a comparatively long one, but it's worth it, especially during the sunset or sunrise.
Bateshwar Nath Temple
In a place full of temples, this one is the oldest in Bihar as it goes back in time right to the Mughal era, or so says the myth. The local legend goes that the temple is a self-made and established one and it appeared magically under a thousand-year-old Banyan tree. Because of such an interesting story about its past, the local people have a lot of respect for this temple. It is, however, a quiet and spiritual place in the middle of the green stretches of pastures and will appeal to those who love to travel in the more uncommon, quaint sites.
Hajipur is one of the 84 Baithaks of India. This temple, like all other ones, is dedicated to Shri Mahaprabhuji, also known as Vallabhacharya. He was the founder of the Pushtimarg sect of Vaishnavism, and he toured the whole country barefoot thrice to spread his knowledge, conduct Krishna-related seminars and discussing his path with other religious leaders. The Baithaks are the shrines which the followers of this sect visit and pay their respect. It is a spiritual and peaceful establishment to visit and take in the essence of the faith.
Located in the west of Hajipur, the Nepali Mandir is a pagoda-style temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Unlike the other Shaivite temples which are made of stones, this one is made of finely carved wood and resembles the architectural style of the Himalayan shrines. Hence it was given the name 'Nepali'. It is a great piece of structure to look at, and the confluence of traditional Hindu style and the touch of the northern mountains is worth experiencing.
