Temples And Legends Of Bihar Introduction

The village Nalanda in the district of Patna has a very hoary history recalling the days of Mahavira and Buddha. Nalanda is 55 miles south-east of Patna and seven miles north of Rajgir, the ancient Rajagriha. Nalanda is now served by a branch section of the Eastern Railway from Bakhtiarpur station on the Howrah-Mughalsarai route. Nalanda is also well connected by an all-weather road with Patna via Bakhtiarpur and several passenger buses run daily from Patna to Rajgir via Nalanda and back.

A number of taxis are also available at Bakhtiarpur railway station, which is at a distance of 25 miles from Nalanda. Ekkas and rickshaws are available at Nalanda. There is an Inspection Bungalow and some dharamshala.3 at Nalanda. The visitors can also stay at Rajgir, only seven miles away, where a large number of rests houses, dormitories, dharmashalas, besides private houses are available on rent.
