Saharsa is situated on the bank of the famous river Kosi, which derived its name
from the famous saint Kaushik. Saharsa was the homeland of the famous learned
scholar Pandit Mandan Mishra with whom the great Adi Shankaracharya had come to
debate, after travelling a great distance, from the south of India. There are
indications that around this time, the region was under the influence of
Buddhism and Adi Shankaracharya had come to try to check its spread and stop the
declination of Hinduism. The very birth place of Lord Buddha, Lumbini in Nepal
is only 150-200 km north-east of this place.
Due to the close proximity of the Himalayan range, the climate of Saharsa is
mostly pleasant throughout the year. You will find lush green fields, clear sky
and pollution free air. In the summer, within a couple of days of hot weather,
there is bound to be a shower.
