Shri Adinath Akharais an ashram dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is situated 1.5 km from the Buxar railway station at the confluence of the Ganga and Sone canals.

Siddhashrm is a very ancient name of Charitravan. It is mentioned as a pilgrimage in ancient Hindu scriptures including Shrimad Valmiki Ramayana, Shiva Purana, Vishnu Purana, Narada Purana and Agni Purana.

Chaurasi (Eighty-four) Navnath Siddhas spent a term of penance there, as authenticated by disc-bearing statues excavated there.

Its re-emergence was initiated by Shri Adinath Peethadheeshwar and Shri Trilokinathjee Maharaj (Shri Nath Baba jee) in 1964. A temple was constructed and in 1967 idols were installed and Yajna was conducted. Shri Adinath Akhara was formally inaugurated in Prayag Kumbh in 1977 by performing Maharudra Yajna.
