Places to Visit in Patna

Gandhi Ghat

One of the most popular tourist attractions in the city, the Gandhi Ghat lies on the bank of the Ganges and is the site where the ashes of Mahatma Gandhi were immersed.

This ritual is similar to the iconic Aarti conducted in Varanasi and Haridwar and has been taking place in Patna since 2011.


Golhgar is a historical monument and is situated in the city. The structure was built in 1786 by Captain John Garstin to serve as a storehouse. However, due to an engineering malfunction, the doors open inwards only and in case the granary was filled, the doors would never open. Hence, Golghar never served the purpose it was built for but managed to give the city a beautiful monument to cherish. On visiting here, you get a stunning view of the entire city and the Ganges.
