The name Bihar is derived from 'Vihara' or monastery.
The state of Bihar is now divided into two parts, namely
Jharkhand and Bihar. Jharkhand is inhabited by the tribes.
Patna is the modern capital of Bihar. Bihar is also one of
most backward states in India. Bihar is more known as the
home of Mahavir and Buddha, where they spent the major part
of their life. Some of the most sacred places connected with
the life of Buddha are located in Bihar and the neighbouring
Uttar Pradesh as Buddha’s travels were confined to these two
states. Bihar is also sacred to Buddhists from all over the
world who come here for pilgrimage, specially to Bodh Gaya,
where the Buddha attained enlightenment. The three major
dialects of the people are Maithali prevailing in the east,
Magadhi in the south, and Bhojpuri in the west. Indo
