Read this article to know Some Special Facts about Golghar - A Very Famous Monument in Patna, Bihar

The Golghar is a really special kind of thing. It is just because though it was not built with a special purpose like the Taj Mahal was built by Shah Jahan for his wife as a memorial, but this was just a granary but then also, today, we like to go there and see it. Let me now give you some special facts about the monument in my own way.

1. The Tallest Building of Its Time - Yes, it has been quite a long time that this famous monument was actually built and it has been about not less than
220 years. And let me tell you that when it was built this building was the tallest one in the whole of Patna.

2. The Whole View - This monument, Golghar is really a tall thing. Its height is 29 metres and I think that is a really big height for any building. If you get on the top of this building using the 145 steps staircase, you can reach a place from where you can actually see the whole of Patna, easily.

3. Never Got Filled - Yes, you will be shocked to know that this thing, Golghar which was actually a granary in its time never got filled. The reason to this is because the doors in this monument are built to open in the inside and if it is filled then it won't be easy to open the doors of this gigantic granary.

Golghar is really an architechtural marvel.It can easily be placed in line with the pyramids,the Leaning Tower of Pisa or for that matter any other famous architechtures of the world though not that old.We wish our govt.will try to showcase it to the people of our country if not to world to make it a tourist attraction.
