  • Buddha Smriti Park is devoted for lord Buddha developed by Bihar tourism. If you are in Patna you should visit once. One small projector theatre room is devoted for watching movies based on lord Buddha life. This park have construction where you can do meditation (only way to communicate with God and useful for mind and soul). During evening, park is decorated with lighting system and they play light music.
  • One of the best place in Patna to get some pleasure moment with friend.. it is most silent place . Very good place for meditation. You can click some very good photographs if you are a good photographer. This park has a museum of Lord Buddha. They have also a library and a meditation place..
  • Buddha Smriti park is located at near by Patna junction. Very good park. You will find greenery in park. Entry fee is around 20 rupies for a person. Sound box is fixed all over the park and you will listen songs in very sweet voice. This park is also very famous among all the unmarried couples. They come here and spend some time .but there is restrictions. Many guards are there and always keep eyes on you. So something problem is there.
  • Very clean and hygienic Park that I observed. Lovely place for visiting to your closer ones and your family. Very good environment in morning if you went there for exercises and even at evening after 4 P.M you can go there chill and enjoy. That is a very good refreshment for mind.
  • A place where you can feel presence of Lord Buddha. Though I used to live outside Bihar. But whenever I get time to come Patna , I surely have a visit here. Must go to Tomb where you can dive down deep and have a self evaluation there. The newly added Vipshyana is also a great initiative. The peace and Buddhism music will definitely give you a relief. 5 out of 5 points from my side.
