  • Love for this place would never be less in my heart Lots of memories lie here,
  • Great connectivity, good people, excellent service and a place of vast experience. I love it and wanna one more time with my family. Despite of a Bihari, I didn't visit this elegant place so far but now this is my one if the best tourist place.
  • Wonderful archaeological site! Not a place for a family holiday.
  • An interesting collection of artefacts...many of the best have been taken to India Museum but there are some good pieces here too.
  • It is a nice museum which has a collection of the artefacts discovered in the excavation of the ancient University of Nalanda. There are even charred grains of rice which had got burnt when the great university was set on fire.
