Visiting experience

I am from Patna but recently I visited this place with my friend. I used bike to visit this location and park our bike in front of main gate. There is a same gate for Bapu Sabhagar and Sabhyta dwar. There are many guards at main gate to check the unauthorized items. As i have told in this blog no food item is allowed in the premises.

After checking, we entered in the premises and then we walk 200 mtr . After that we can clearly see the Sabhyta dwar. We were fully excited to see this great heritage gateway of Bihar. Sabhyta dwar was looking tremendous and wonderful. People of different profession visit this place like family, friend’s artist and students.
