Correct Answer - Option 2 : Sasaram

The correct answer is Sasaram.

  • A gifted administrator and strategist who ruled from 1538 to 1545, Sher Shah Suri is famous for his contribution towards connect\ing the major Indian cities.


  • Born Farid Khan in 1486 at Sasaram in modern-day Bihar, he was the grandson of an ethnic Afghan, a noble of the Pashtun Sur tribe named Ibrahim Khan Suri.
    • Farid Khan became known as ‘Sher’ when, as a young man, he saved the King of Bihar from a tiger that had suddenly leaped upon him.
    • He was later re-named Sher Shah and rose to become the founder of the Suri Empire in the northern part of the Indian subcontinent.
    • Sher Shah rose from being a private to the status of a commander in the Mughal Army under Babur to the level of being the Governor of Bihar.
    • In 1538, when Babur’s son Humayun was away at war, Sher Shah took over the State of Bengal and established the Suri dynasty — naming it after the ‘Sur’ tribe to which he belonged.
    • A gifted administrator and strategist during his rule from 1538 to 1545, he introduced a number of important changes, which continue to benefit us till today.
