Golghar is a huge granary; it was intended to be one of several, but was the only one built. It’s located in Patna in Eastern India and was completed in 1786 by the Bengal Engineers.
It was intended to store enough grain to prevent the area suffering from a famine. The structure’s statistics are impressive; it measures almost 30 meters in height and the walls at its base are almost 4 meters thick.
A spiral staircase around the outside leads to the top of the structure; originally this was intended for unloading grain, today it provides a wonderful view over the nearby Ganges River.Places nearby:
