village of Masaih situated in the Sahabad district of Bihar, is
enshrining several relics of great importance.
It is associated with the pouranic characters, like Sri Krishna,
Banasura, Usha and Aniruddha and 'it was called then Padmavathipura.
Later it became Mahasara during the hey day of Jains, meaning
thereby a big tank; and it measured 52 bighas of land then. Some
legends credit it with being the capital of Aniruddha, and a few
ascribe it to that place called Mallahesanrh, said to have been
built by Banasura for wrestling bouts. All these names reflect the
former glory of this great place.
