About Gandhi Maidan

63%
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.

This is the park in middle of the city, traffic surrounding it. You can relax here in the evening or can have morning walk over here. Near by the park there is famous market called Khaitan market you can have many stuffs from there at really cheap price.

One of the best places in Patna and is a good place to sit and relax, a lot goes on there most of the time and it's really nice. The Biscomaun Bhawan, the tallest building in Patna is close to Gandhi Maidan and also Golghar one of the historical monument to see in Patna is within the closing distance from Gandhi Maidan.

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.
