Vaisali was once a prosperous town and the centre of Jain culture. It has declined in glory considerably but attempts are being made to revive it.
Vaisali is a village connected by road with the headquarters of a sub-division of Hajipur, Muzaffarpur district, as well as with Muzaffarpur, the district headquarters town. It is 22 miles from Hajipur and 30 miles from Muzaffarpur by road. The nearest railway station is Hajipur. Passenger buses run from both Muzaffarpur and Hajipur to Vaisali. Horse drawn ekkas and rickshaws are also available at Hajipur station.
