Patna Museum -

Located on the Buddha Marg, the Patna Museum is a must visit for a Buddhist tourist. The museum houses some brilliant examples of the craftsmanship flourishing in the Pala period, between the 8th and the 12th century, particularly with respect to Buddhist art. Statues of Maitreya and Avalokitesvara of unparalleled finesse can be found here, along with a modest collection of Tibetan Thangkasthat were donated by the renowned Indian monk, Rahula Sankrityayana.The statues have their heads tilted to one side and their face conveying a gentle smile. The statues very effectively portray the ideal that the two statues stand for – compassion.

On the upper gallery, you can see the bronze statues from Kurkihar. The museum is open between 10.30 am to 4.30 pm everyday except Monday.

Kumrahar:

Located 5 km from the Patna Railway Station, Kumrahar is the site for ancient city of Patliputra. Today, very little remain of the old capital city barring remains of a King Ashoka’s Palace, or atleast the Mauryan period palace. The hall stands on 80 sandstone pillars. Kumrahar can be visited between 9 am to 5.30 pm everyday except Monday.
