Buddha Smriti Park Reviews
Lovely experience... First visit to Patna and really impressed with cleanliness and security maintaining by them... love to see these things in Patna like city.... the best thing was the devotional music playing in all over the park... Lovely.. I just loved it...
Nice place to visit and spend time in peace, even if you are alone or with someone. Entry fee is 20/- but if you want to enter temple or museum it has additional charges. Otherwise this place is good and peaceful.
