About Golghar

Standing the test of time, Golghar is a fine example of the architectural grandeur of ancient Patna. The beehive shaped edifice is one of the most identifiable landmarks of the city. The unique structure was built by Captain John Garstin and was used as a granary to store excess grains to counter famines, which were a common occurrence in this region. Golghar features Stupa architecture and is a pillar-less structure with thick walls at the base. The spiral stairway that leads to the top of the building was designed to facilitate passage for the workers who used to carry heavy grain bags inside the granary. Witness the splendor of the 300 years old historical monument from the top, capturing amazing views of the Ganges and the entire Patna city.
