A Fort As Royal As Chittorgarh
The abandoned Rohtasgarh Fort as magnificent as Rajasthan’s Chittorgarh is located near the Son River valley. Unfortunately, the co-founders unearthed how it’s beauty was undermined by several media agencies wrongfully reporting it as haunted and being inhabited by Naxalites, scaring tourists away. Yet, even unkempt, the two reported the Fort to be spellbindingly beautiful, known to have been built by Rohitasva, son of King Harishchandra.

A Palace That Looks Like Greece
Yes, you heard that right. The two also discovered a palace that looked no less than Athens of Greece. The Madhubani Rajnagar Palace ruins are a sight to behold. And what’s more, another temple near Buxar, modelled after the Greek Parthenon! Who knew Bihar was so rich in history and architecture.

What Else?
An unknown tiger reserve near the Nepal border? Yes, its called the Valmikinagar Tiger Reserve, another gem hidden in Bihar. And there’s also Sitamari to see, touted as the birthplace of Sita. So much to see and experience, we know where we are heading next!

This will not just create a new and more positive attitude and conception of the state but also generate many employment opportunities for natives!  We applaud the strength and hard work these women have undertaken to restore a state otherwise avoided by many on an unfair basis.
