Bihar is a state in Northern India. It lies on the Gangetic plain, with Uttar Pradesh to its west, West Bengal to its east, Jharkhand to its south and Nepal to its north. The Bihar plain is divided into two unequal halves by the Ganges, which flows through the middle from west to east. Bihar is one of India’s poorest states, with stark social inequality. Travelers may find the hassles common to traveling everywhere in India are more pronounced here.

Map of Bihar

Bihar can be grouped into four regions based on river boundaries. These four regions have very similar languages – Angika, Bhojpuri, Magadhi and Maithili spoken in respective regions. The languages are collectively known as ‘Bihari’ and are decedents of the ancient language of Magadhi Prakrit, the language spoken by the Buddha and the language of the ancient kingdom of Magadha.
