Bihar's antiquity is evident from its name, which is derived from the ancient word
"VIHARA" (monastery). It is indeed a land of monasteries. Hindu, Buddhist, Jain,
Muslim and Sikh shrines abound in this ancient land where India's first major empires
rose and fell. Where the ruins of the worlds' earliest university slumbers in the
void of time. The passage of Ganga, flowing wide and deep enrich the plains of Bihar
before distributing in Bengal's deltoid zone.
Among all Indian states, Bihar is the one most intimately linked to the Buddha’s life, resulting in a trail of pilgrimages which have come to be known as the Buddhist circuit. The Buddhist trail begins at the capital city, Patna, where a noteworthy museum contains a collection of Hindu and Buddhist sculptures as well as a terracotta urn said to contain the ashes of Lord Buddha.
