Places to Visit in Kankarbagh

Buddha Smriti Park

The expansive Buddha Smriti Park was inaugurated in 2010 and lies just a few kilometres away from Kankarbagh. The memorial pays homage to the life and teachings of Gautam Buddha. A central stupa surrounded by vast and plush gardens immediately attracts people toward it. The meditation pavilions interspersed throughout the complex infuse the atmosphere with tranquillity and peace. The Patliputra Karuna Stupa houses the holy relics of Buddha, making this park a revered and sought-after pilgrimage site.

Mahavir Mandir

For worshippers of Lord Hanuman, the Mahavir Mandir is a revered temple in Patna. Hundreds of people from Kankarbagh and other localities frequently visit the temple in search of the divine’s blessings. Roughly 20-30 minutes away from Kankarbagh, the temple opens early in the morning for darshans. The devotional scenes at the temple, featuring aartis and prayers, are testaments to the undying faith of Patna’s people.  

Gandhi Maidan

The iconic Gandhi Maidan has been a part of several political rallies and public movements and resultantly, a striking energy permeates the aura of this vast ground. Mahatma Gandhi delivered some of his most famous speeches on this ground. The many government institutions and historic landmarks present around the maidan significantly heighten its social stature. Architecturally, the stunning expanse of the park houses the world’s tallest bronze statue of Mahatma Gandhi. 


The much talked about and unique granary, Golghar, is only 6-8 kilometres from Kankarbagh. Erected in 1786 by Captain John Garstin for the British Army, this beehive-shaped structure offers panoramic views of the city and the Ganges River from its summit. Back like a stupa, the interiors of the granary can be entered by ascending its 145-step spiral staircase. Golghar is a must visit, especially for architectural enthusiasts and history lovers. 

Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park

Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park, fondly known as Patna Zoo, is a verdant retreat for the people living in Kankarbagh. Originally established as a botanical garden in 1969, it was opened to the public as a zoo in 1973. The ecological haven houses over 800 animals across 110 species, including tigers, leopards, and rhinoceros. On the flora fund, the biological park houses 300 species of trees, herbs, and shrubs. The park is open to visitors from 5 am to 6 pm.
