Bihar Tourism

History, religion, education and culture – these words characterise Bihar with one caveat – the lawlessness that prevails. Bihar has always been an educational centre right from the times of the Magadh Empire when Pataliputra and Nalanda were the seats of learning.

Despite Bihar’s notoriety as the scam state of India, it is a holy site because of three Great Souls who walked and preached on this land – Lord Buddha, Lord Mahavira and Guru Nanak. Today followers of the Buddha come in droves from all over the world to visit the holy sites of Gaya and Rajgir. Bihar in total is a pilgrimage for the adherents of all the major religions founded on its sacred land.
