The name Bihar derived from Sanskrit word �Vihar� meaning abode, is indeed a land of monasteries. Called as �Magadh� in ancient times, Bihar boasts of abounding Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, Muslim and Sikh shrines. Soil of Bihar has either archeological remains or minerals.  It is bounded by Nepal to the north and by the Indian states of West Bengal to the northeast, Uttar Pradesh to the west and Jharkhand to the south. It spans an area of about 94,164 km� and its population is over 82,878,796. The passage of Ganga, flowing wide and deep enrich the plains of Bihar before distributing in Bengal's deltoid zone. The state capital is Patna and the language is Hindi (Bihari dialect). Being the land where India�s first major empires rose and fell, and the ruins of the World�s earliest University slumbers in the void of time, Bihar is a rich state of variegated wealth of Indian Civilization, history and culture coupled with exquisite scenic beauties, wild life and minerals.
