Patna itself is a thriving commercial centre situated on the banks of Ganges River. A lot of Patna’s past got destroyed by the army of Muslim invader Muhammad bin Bakhtiyar Khalji at the end of the 12th Century which is why a city with so much historical importance receives relatively few tourists. Nonetheless, there are some unique places to visit in Patna worth stopping a day or two in the city to see before rushing off to Bodh Gaya. For instance consider a visit to the Mahavir Mandir, which is one of India’s most important Hindu temples, or a visit to the Padri Ki Haveli, an 18th Century Catholic church, or taking a cruise along the Ganges past India’s longest river bridge.
