These ruins are what to be known as the Bimbisara Jail or Bimbisara Prison, where according to the legend, King Ajatshatru, the successor of King Bimbisara and his son, imprisoned his father during his old age, and crowned himself as the king. Bimbisara himself chose this spot for the prison as he could get a clear view of the Gridhkuta hill, where Lord Buddha used to preach his sermon. The four corner bastions (not clear in the picture), remains of jail cells and even iron handcuffs (Presently exibhited at the Indian Musuem, Kolkata) were found here, suggesting these ruins to be a prison long ago.

The above photographs depict of what can be called as the possible remains of the two ancient stupas at Rajgir. The first one is said to be an Ashokan Stupa, built by Emperor Ashoka around 3rd-2nd Centuries BCE. This Stupa was made with bricks and it lies just outside Rajgir. So far only this much has been excavated out from this stupa.
The second picture shows another set of ruins which are much older and can be very important, as they can be the ruins of the Ajatshatru's Stupa, built by the Magadha king Ajatshatru and were built just after the death of Lord Buddha, to hold a relic related to him. This Ajatshatru Stupa is far more difficult to excavate, as it lies on the place which is now a major urban centre of Rajgir and the ruins that have been excavated here lie in a horrible condition, with no care taken by and the locals ravaging and littering the ruins, which is really bad.

The old fortification walls situated at the outer hills of Rajgir are quite a historical stuff. These walls were built around 6th Century BCE, by the kings of Magadha kingdom, the most powerful Mahajanapada at that time to protect their capital city, which was called as Rajgrih at that time. These walls are one of the oldest historical relics of the city, dating even before Mauryan times (c. 3rd Century BCE). What makes these walls interesting is that no cementing material or mortar was used to construct them. They are made up of stone blocks placed together in such manner that they get interlocked with each other. It is fascinating to see that eventhough many parts of the walls have succumbed to the ravages of time, some parts are still intact and stand proudly, protecting the sacred city.

8.Story of Bimbisara and Amrapali

The famous courtesan of Vaisali, Amrapali is also famous as one of Buddha’s disciples. It is said that When King Bimbisara of Magadha attacked Vaisali, he came to know of Amrapali’s fame and disguised, came to see her dance. Both fell in love with each other, but when Bimbisara asked her to come with him, she declined, having promised the citizens that she would never marry. Instead, she asked him to save her city if his love was true, and later joined Buddha to attain peace.
