    One of the oldest surviving rock-cut caves in the India, Barabar caves are one of the most excellent examples of ancient Indian architecture. Carved entirely out of granite, the Caves have two main rooms. The Caves are mentioned in the Mahabharata as Gorathgiri and adding to the mystery, the same name is mentioned in a cliff near the Caves.

    The Caves are believed to be built at the time of the Maurya Empire. The two small chambers make up for a unique cave structure, and they are capable of making echoes that last several seconds. The interior of the Caves is fully polished and still to this day science has not uncovered how the Mauryans would achieve such a feat.
