The capital of Bihar – ‘Patna’ is a historic city with a glorious past that has few parallels. Founded back in the 5th century by the Magadha monarch, the city was called Pataliputra, and it emerged as a center of learning and Buddhism. Once the abode of the eminent scholars like Aryabhata and Chanaynka, this city has undergone many upheavals, over the centuries. The present Patna will seem an eclectic amalgamation of the bygone past and modern civilization to your eyes.
