Pretshila Temple

Pretshila has located about 8 km north-west direction from Gaya city. It is a revered place for Hindus where they perform Pind Daan (a religious ritual for the peace of departed souls). This is a tradition going on for centuries and people believe that after worshiping at this place, the soul attains salvation.


On the top of the hill is a temple dedicated to Lord Yama, the god of death according to Hindu mythology. The temple was initially constructed by Rani Ahilyabai Holkar of Indore but has been renovated several times. You can see a pond called Ramkund near the temple, where Lord Rama is believed to have once bathed in it.
