    Amidst the bustle of noisy goofy Patna does not expect to meet such a quiet, cozy corner. Greens, shade, relaxation, relieving stress types-all answers of the Buddhist tradition (although not lets and visiting Christians, Jews, Hindus and Muslims)). Nothing special, but good here.

    Nice and beautiful and with a lot of restrictions. It is not allowed to walk on most of the grass areas and even if a kid enters into they start shouting. And the most part eating and drinking is not allowed to a very high extent.

    Amazing place near railway station, most memorable time is 6 pm before park closing. You cab enjoy great art with water lager.

    The park is absolutely beautiful, so is the museum and the stupa. Peaceful and green. Best time to go in the summers - by 4PM in the evening and any time during the monsoon and the winters.
