Located in the state of Bihar, Buxar is a much sought after tourist destination in the region. Located beautifully on the banks of the Holy Ganges, this ancient town is of great historical importance. The name Buxar is said to be derived from VyaghraSar, Vyaghra + Sar are Sanskrit words meaning tiger and tank respectively. This seems to suggest a pond that was visited by a tiger to drink water. This is the generally accepted origin of the name of the town.

Buxar city guide is incomplete without a mention of the Chausagarh, Buxar Fort, Katkauli ka Maidan as well as for many adventure sports options like kayaking and water sports. It has various beautiful locations such as Dumraon Sub Division and Buxar Sadar of the old Bhojpur district.

Two important battles were fought in Buxar. The first of the battles was fought between Humayun and Sher Shah Suri at Chousa in 1539 A.D. The battle was won by Sher Shah Suri. Then in Oct 1764, Mir Kasim with his army was defeated Major Hector Monro. The battle ground of Katkauli is 6 Kms from the city of Buxar. The stone memorial at Katkauli stands testament to the battle even today.
