The city of Patna, where it stands today, was once the famous historical city of Pataliputra, which saw the rise and fall of the world-famous empire of India. From the sixth century BCE to the sixth century AD, its glory ballads spread in all directions. Ajatashatru, the second glorious king of the Magadha Empire, built a small Pataligram at the confluence of the Ganges and the Son River. This fort later became the famous headquarters during the Maurya era, from where Chandragupta Maurya and his descendant Ashoka the Great ruled. Let us now tell you about the tourist places in Patna.

Places to see in Patna
Golghar – This huge Golghar, shaped like a bee cane, is visible to people travelling from far away to Patna. According to two records written here, after the terrible famine that came in 1770, the need for a state granary (warehouse) was felt. The result of this was that Golghar was completed in 1786, which was built by Captain John Garsitan. The height of this Golghar is 29 meters and all four steps have been made so that it can be reached at the top of the Golghar. The joy of seeing the Ganges and the city of Patna from above the Golghar is only a little different.
