Nalanda is located 11 km away ( by rail) from Rajgir, a major Tourist destination and 12 km away (by rail) from Bihar Sharif, the nearest major city and transport hub and the district headquarters, connected by NH 120.
# Tourism in Nalanda Town
Small town bologe toh nitish ji gussa jaayenge, metro bolo
Nalanda to actually bas ek chhota sa kasba hi hai..located near Bihar Sharif, the main city of Nalanda dist. Just like Varanasi city and Sarnath.
Rajgir 😍 Nitish ji ka favourite hai and undeclared capital of Bihar a/c to some people 😜.
Nalanda should be developed and should made a big destination for tourists
It is an ancient place should be redeveloped and a big rail terminal should be Made here
Rajgir and Biharsharif should be developed with better rail facilities and good connectivity. Rajgir is the most visited place in Bihar...so it deserves more facilities and trains. Nalanda can't be developed that much as it is like a kasbah..so Bihar Sharif can be developed as it is the main city and by road only 6 - 7 km away.
Nalanda District, home to tourism spots like Nalanda, Rajgir, Pawapuri etc is among one of the most neglected areas by ECR. Koi dhyan nhi deta hai Railway idhar.
ECR concentrate only at Danapur chapara
Chhapra Jn is in Varanasi Division, NER.
And...it is true that Danapur division, ECR only focuses on Mainline and heavily neglects its branch lines. We can see the difference in no. of trains and passenger facilities by comparing Patna, Bhojpur, Buxar, Jamui and Lakhisarai..the districts on the mainline of DNR division...the districts of Nalanda, Jehanabad, Nawada, Sheikhpura, which are on branch lines.. totally neglected.
What is local transport status to visit these places from rajgir? Means auto, taxi ,city bus from rajgir..Means which one is cheap and convenient?
Nalanda is located on NH 120, exactly midway between Rajgir and Bihar Sharif, the district headquarters. You can easily take the buses plying between Rajgir and Bihar Sharif... early morning to night. You can also take train for Nalanda station from Rajgir, Patna or Bakhtiyarpur Jn. Taxis are also available for Nalanda. But buses are most economical and are also convenience as large no of buses and excellent road network in area. so, if going from Rajgir to Nalanda, take a bus..a short journey of 20 minutes.
If you are going from Patna. Take a train to Nalanda. If by bus..you can easily get a govt or private bus for Bihar Sharif and then a bus for Nalanda, which hardly takes 10-12
