Astro Tourism Circuit

The Bihar government plans to develop Khagual, Taregna and Taregna Top as a astro-tourism circuit, These are historical locations, where renowned astronomer and mathematician Aryabhata conducted astronomical studies. Aryabhata, who was born in 476 AD , also wrote the monumental work "Aryabhatiyam" at the age of 23.

Aryabhata has also been credited for inventing "zero" and giving it a place within the numerical systems besides approximating the value of Pi (π).

The state's science and technology department has decided to develop these three places as centers of tourism attraction highlighting the life and work of Aryabhata. These centres would showcase Aryabhata's concepts and models.

Go see Patna Museum this Diwali

The Patna museum, which is 84 years old,  is undergoing renovation and will have new galleries and lighting systems that will be of international standards.

It will also house an exhibition gallery where local artists could exhibit their art. Besides this there would be a modern cafeteria , better lavatories and a  museum shop for souvenirs.  It should be worth a visit to the museum and hopefully becomes a tourist destination for tourists from outside the state, bringing in more job opportunities for the local people.
