Legend of Dungeshwari Cave Temple
Dungeshwari Cave Temple is where Gautama Buddha is said to have spent 6-7 years meditating in extreme asceticism and starved him to the edge of death. At that time, a lady named Sujata from a nearby village offered him food and water. Later Gautama realised that one cannot attain enlightenment by self-indulgence or self-abasement. He then carried on with his journey and reached Bodhgaya where he finally attained enlightenment.
