Patna Tours and Travels

About Patna

Modern Patna stretches along the S bank of the Ganga for about 15 km. Divided in 2 by the Maidan, a large open park. Patna’s buildings reflect its administrative and educational functions. Golghar – The gola or round house is the extraordinary 29m high bee-hive shaped structure between the Maidan and the Ganga. For an excellent view of the city and the Ganga, it is well worth climbing the steps of Golghar. At the eastern end of the city, in the Chowk area of old Patna stands one of the holiest sikh shrines. Built of white marble by Ranjit Singh.
