The capital of Bihar, Patna dates back to the 6th century BC, which makes it one of the oldest cities in India. Today, it's nice enough place, but one which holds only the barest of indications of its former glory as the centre of the Magadhan and Mauryan empires. The sprawling metropolis hugs the south bank of the Ganges, streching for around 15km in a shape that has changed little since Ajatasatru (491-459 BC) shifted the Magadhan capital here from Rajgir.
