Patna

Hi Friends...

Here is a little sneak-peek into my hometown, Patna, Bihar. 
People know Patna as a very backward place..
But to tell you the truth...
every place or thing has its plus and minus points...
But home is home...no comparison...
I love my hometown...because of the sweet memories of my childhood... :)
So...here is a glimpse...hope you like it.. 

<= This is Gol Ghar...it is a grain store..
built in British period...
After the devastating famine of 1770, which killed nearly 10 million people in regions of Bengal, Bihar. This beehive shaped structure for the purpose of storing grains for the British Army. It has a storage capacity of 140000 tons.
