Located in the Kalmur district of Bihar, Barwan Kala is famously known for not seeing a wedding for 50 years. It is known as ‘Village of Bachelors’. It is 300 kilometers away from Patna and is like an inaccessible part of the state as for long it has been with no railway station, road, water, electricity, healthcare centre or mobile network. One has to reach there by road only. One has to reach Bhabua railway station to reach via road.
The Bizarre Indian Village of Bachelors Barwan Kala is also known for its rich cultural heritage and historical significance. The village is home to several ancient temples and monuments, including the Barwan Kala Temple, which is believed to have been built during the Gupta dynasty. The village is also known for its traditional crafts such as pottery and weaving.
It is said that for the whole 50 years, bachelors have only lived in this village. People who even thought of marrying their daughters, came back in haste due to bachelors being the existing people. Those who wanted to get married had to go down the Kaimur hills and get married and live over there. It was for generations then, that remained unmarried.
In 2008, villagers themselves tracked their own path as government fell deaf ears to their pleas for building a road. Even over the years, many candidates stood up with the promise of not getting married and building the road. But eventually they got married and never fulfilled their promise. So, villagers themselves built the six kilometers road cutting through the hills and forest. It was in February 2017, that the village saw its first wedding. Ajay Kumar Yadav got married and brought Neetu, his wife to Barwan Kala.
