Maurya Patna

About Hotel

Hotel Maurya-Patna is a pioneering project of Bihar Hotels Limited (BHL). BHL has been successfully operating its five star Hotel in Patna since 1978. And since then, the company has generated foreign exchange for the state of over Rs. 34 million. Most of this income has been generated from foreign tourists coming from Japan and the Far Eastern countries, who are on pilgrimage to the Buddhist shrines of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. The hotel property is located on a two and a half acre plot in the prime commercial area of Patna (Gandhi Maidan). Its prime location gives the hotel a definitive competitive advantage over any other existing or new hotel since land is very scarce and expensive in central Patna.
