  • Museums in Bihar



    Bihar is as old as civilisation itself. It is a glorious, colourful and ancient land. This is the land that has seen the mythological king Janaka of Videha, Rishi Yangyabalka of vedic period, Maharshi Valmiki of Ramayan fame and Kautilya, the author of Arthashastra, the first treatise on modern economics. This had been the land where great religious leaders like Buddha, Mahavir and Nanak were born and great kings like Chandragupta Maurya, Ashoka and Sher Sah ruled. The ancient seats of learning - Nalanda and Vikramshila flourished here. `Ahimsa' was propagated from here and Gandhiji launched his civil-disobedience movement against the mighty British.

     A glimpse of all this can be seen by visiting the museums in Bihar. The famous Patna Museum is the oldest establishment among them and it came into existence in 1917. The museum houses about 42,000 items of archeological importance including 22,000 old coins. The museum unveils a long history of the region. The sculpture of a Yakshni and Lord Buddha Relic is a special attraction for visitors.
