Patna is the capital city of the state of Bihar and, as Patliputra, was Kings Ashok's capital more then 25 centuries ago. The city stretches 8 miles along the holy river Ganges. Places of interest are the city museum which houses an interesting collection of metal and stone sculptures (3rd century BC) as well as terracotta figures and archaelogical finds from sites in Bihar. Patna reflects an interesting mix of cultures and is an important centre of development in India.
