Once the centre of the Maurayan Empire, Bihar has a rich historical and cultural heritage. The vast open plains are a gift of the Ganges. It is indeed a land of monasteries. Multi religeous shrines abound in this ancient land where India’s first major empires rose and fell. The passage of the Ganga, flowing deep and wide, enriches the plains of Bihar before distributing in Bengal’s Sundarbans.
