Rajgir Mahotsava-2011

Rajgir Mahotsava- 2011 In Pictures

Rajgir Mahotsava-2011 was very successful in many ways. Learning from past experiences the Department of Tourism (Government of Bihar) and District Administration, Nalanda, provided many more opportunities to small enterprises owned by SHGs, NGOs and Cooperatives to showcase their produce through the Gram Shree Mela. Many sports and cultural events were also planned throughout the day to encourage local schools and artisans. 


During the prime time (6 to 10 pm), there were a galaxy of top stars with lively performances. I share with you a few glimpses of the mega show,
