Road is stone layered road, important in early Indian history as Bimbisara was about to visit Gautama Buddha
on Mount Gridhrakuta.
Bimbisara Road is now a tourist attraction in Rajgir
. According to Hiuen Tsang, when Bimbisara was about to visit Gautama Buddha on Mount Gridhrakuta, this road linked between them. He collected a number of men to accompany him. They levelled the valleys and spanned the precipices, and with the stones made a staircase about 10 paces wide and 5 to 6 inches long.
This road of Bimbisara, which Hiuen Tsang traversed, still exists, and still affords the most suitable footway through the jungle of Mount Gridhrakuta and up the hillside in approaching Gridhrakuta.
Bimbisara Road is built of rough undressed stones, like all the prehistoric walls of Rajagriha
, and its width is from 20 to 24 feet, which agrees well enough with the ten paces of Hiuen Tsang.
