The Bihar Government celebrated its 99th Foundation Year in 2011. All of its district headquarters held two days of celebrations. Bihar Sharif, the headquarter of the Nalanda District, celebrated the foundation day at historic Badi Pahari. Badi Pahari has some very fine ancient remains from the Buddhist period and Muslim architecture. We share with you some fine moment that we captured at the event.
An important part of the event was an exhibition on the Buddhist Heritage of Nalanda (district). The exhibition, designed by me, comprised of pictures of Buddhist sites and aerial photographs taken by Yves Guichand.
