The significance of the Buxar fort stems from its placement on the banks of the Ganga. On October 23, 1764, a major fight took place here between the British army and the armies of Shuja-ud-Dowlah and Kasim Ali Khan.

  • Brahmeshwar Nath Temple : The temple is devoted to Lord Shiva, and the temple has a myth about a great monarch named Mohamad Ghaznavi who planned to plunder the temple. It is reported that the villagers and devotees told him numerous times that the temple's treasure could not be harmed, and that if you want to do the same, no one can defend you from Lord Shiva's wrath. The arrogant emperor ignored the devotees and offended Lord Shiva by questioning His presence in the temple, daring Lord Shiva to leave the temple unhurt if the temple's entrance moved from east to west until sunrise. He was surprised to discover the temple's entrance shifted to the west in the morning. The emperor recognized Lord Shiva's might and fled without looting the shrine.
