About Gandhi Maidan

75%
voted as clean

Gandhi Maidan, formerly known as Patna Lawns, is popular attraction in the region as it has been a witness to several Indian freedom movements, including the Champaran and the Quit India movement held during 1942. This ancient ground is located near the banks of Ganga River, towards the east of the Golghar Falls.

This ground was considered as hotspot for freedom movement rallies and major activists from the Indian freedom struggle namely Mahatma Gandhi, Rajendra Prasad, Sardar Patel, Maulana Azad, Nehru and Indira Gandhi have made memorable speeches here. Presently, this ground is being utilised for several commercial purposes like private parties, mass prayers and trade fairs

In the north western corner of the ground lies the Gandhi Sangrahalaya, which showcases various pictures and records of Mahatma Gandhi's presence and connections with Bihar. During the year 1947, it used to be the house of the Education Minister, Dr. Syed Mahmud.  These grounds are situated near Ashok Rajpath in Moradpur and are 2.5 km from central Patna.

"Historical place in the heart of Patna" new review

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
A grand open space, ideal for running in the morning. Often fairs are organised and if you have taste for ethnic products, this place is a treat. Don't miss the book fair in December held here.
