How to reach Vaishali
Vaishali is an ancient town in Bihar and is a sacred place for both Buddhists as well as for Jains. The Buddha is said to have preached some of his last sermons here and the Jains believe that this is the birth place of Lord Mahavir as well. There are many stupas and monasteries as well as ancient ruins to keep a visitor occupied here.
Vaishali does not have a railway station and visitors need to take a train to nearby Muzaffarpur. This station is conveniently linked to major stations like Howrah in Kolkata, New Delhi, and Jamshedpur and even to Ahmedabad.
There is no direct connection to Vaishali and one would need to take a flight to Patna. There are taxis that take visitors from the airport to Vaishali and these are available at the airport itself.
– Vaishali sees a lot of tourist traffic and there are buses and taxis that ply to and from Patna, Nalanda and Bodh Gaya while on the Buddha Route. Varanasi, a major sacred city for the Hindus is also just 272 kms away.
