Cyclopean Wall Overview
The Cyclopean Wall is a 40 kilometre long stone wall encircling the entire Rajgir (formerly known as Rajgriha). It is one of the beautiful places to visit in Rajgir and the oldest examples of cyclopean masonry found across the world. It was built by King Jarasandh, 2nd ruler of Brihadratha or Rawani dynasty to protect the city from invaders and enemies.

This wall is protected by the National Monument and most of the wall has been destroyed with time. Built with huge limestone boulders without any use of mortar and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the year 1987. You can also see the Chariot Wheel Marks near the Cyclopean Wall and engravings in an unencrypted script around the Route Marks of the Chariot. The engravings are supposed to be made sometime between the 1st and 5the century AD.
