About patna

Patna, historically known as Pataliputra, is the capital city of the Indian state of Bihar. With almost two thousand six hundred years of history in its stride, Patna boasts many heritage and archaeological sites for enthusiast travelers to explore. The city has an affluent historical past and has witnessed rise and fall of many empires. Despite being considered a chaotic city, its past glory of learning and culture has always attracted travelers from all over the world. Great British writer and traveler, Peter Mundy, called Patna as 'the greatest mart of the eastern region.' \r\n\r\nThe city is abode to some of the ancient folk music mainly performed by the Magahi folk singers. Many famous monuments dot the city landscape, with Mahavir Mandir being one of the major attractions of the city. Patna is also a gateway to many important religious sites of the state. Buddhist, Hindus, Jains come here for their annual pilgrimage. From here they head to places like Vaishali, Rajgir, Nalanda, Bodh Gaya, and Pawapuri which are all nearby and well connected by different means of transportation. Located on the bank of the river Ganges, travelers can explore the holy river on a river cruise, organized by the state tourism department. Lucky travelers get a chance to spot the Ganges dolphins, the National Aquatic Animal of India.
