Golghar at Patna

Friends, I am a resident of Patna, the capital of Bihar where we all love to see Golghar. Golghar, a unique structure with a spherical shape in Patna has historical importance.

That is why I would like to share some important facts about this magnificent structure on the eve of Bihar Diwas .. Yes, this is one of the most important historical landmarks of the city

During the Indian independence movement, the Golghar was a center of activity for the revolutionaries. The structure was used as a venue for political meetings, and it was from here that the call for the Quit India Movement was made by Mahatma Gandhi in 1942.

The Golghar has also been associated with some tragic events in Indian history.

In 1770, a devastating famine struck the region, which led to the deaths of millions of people. In response to the famine, the British government decided to build the Golghar to store grains. However, the construction of the Golghar was not completed in time, and the stored grains were not enough to feed the hungry people. This led to widespread protests, and the Golghar was seen as a symbol of British oppression.

Major Tourist Attraction

Despite the tragic events associated with its construction, the Golghar remains an important landmark in the city of Patna. The structure has been renovated and restored several times over the years, and it continues to stand tall as a symbol of India’s rich cultural heritage.
