West Bengal, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Nepal surround Bihar. Patna, which was called Pataliputra in ancient times, is its present capital.

Modern Industries have creeped in here a lot, which look like giant monsters bellowing out smoke. Since this land was the birthplace of Buddhism, it has many Buddhist shrines scattered throughout the state. The state also boasts of many aborigines.
