Fantastic information
These are amazing structures, shame govt isn't doing much to popularize them.
Bihar has a wealth of ancient, over 2000 year old structure, but just like how we forgot what Bodh Gaya was and needed britishers to come and tell us our history in 19th century, so too today we are going to forget what we have and need others to come and guide us :/
