  • It could have been a big tourist attraction. But unfortunately there is general lack of interest with the authorities to understand the problems. Nevertheless it is a good place for a clear view of magnificent Ganges that flows nearby. This place needs an urgent makeover to attract tourists.
  • One of the historical architectural monument in Patna. Beautiful big Park, children park, open air theatre, and in the evening laser show fasility also available. One of the best place in Patna for family, frainds check out.
  • One of the iconic structures of Patna. Under construction most of the time but still worthy for a visit. Nice big garden nd laser show in the evening ; one can also get a great overview of patna from the top*. *if u can climb all those stairs ;)
  • Its cool place now. From the top point, we can have better sight all around but it itself need to be cleand.
  • Once it was great to spend time here with family and friends but today no so great even no one is allowed to use the stairs and be on the top of this dome to enjoy the view of the city
