These are the top 10 places and their tales of Rohtas

  3. Forts of Rohtas
    Rohtas have always been a stronghold for many kings and clans. The land has served many kings from Ancient India to British India, therefore one can find many forts in the District such as Rohtasgarh fort, Shergarh Fort, and Hassan Khan fort sadly some of the forts have been demolished over time.
  4. Temples of Rohtas
    Officially Rohtas is just 50 years old but the evidence of the existence of this palace can be found in many folk tales, holy books, and mythological stories these are the reasons the whole district is full of temples of all periods such as Tara Chandi temple, Chaurasan Temple, Bhaluni Bhawani, Ganesh Temple and many more.
  5. Waterfalls of Rohtas
    In the famous book Ain-i-Akhbari there is mention of the waterfalls of Rohtas “In the rainy season lakes are formed, and more than two hundred waterfalls gladden the eye and ear. The climate is remarkably healthy.”
    Some famous waterfalls are Manjhar Kund, Dhuan Kund, Tutla Bhawani, Kashish waterfall, Geeta Ghat, etc.
  6. Mosques of Rohtas
    It is said that Syed Meer Hassan also known as Chand Tan Shaheed Peer spread Islam in Sasaram in the 12th century but there is not much evidence that can justify this statement. But one can find many mosques from the 15 century after the arrival of Hassan Khan Sur. The rest of the mosques found in Sasaram are constructed after the establishment of the Khanqah in the 17th century. The Mosque of Khanqah, the mosque of Alamgir, the mosque of Postekhan, the Mosque of Shahjuma, and the Shahi masjid are some of the famous mosques in Rohtas.
