Patna: Bihar which is a special state located in the eastern part of India has turned 110-Years-Old on March 22, 2022.
In 1912, Bihar came into existence as an independent state after the British separated it from the Bengal province. In the same year, Odisha too was recognized as a separate state.
Every year on March 22, Bihar Diwas is celebrated and this year, the people of Bihar are celebrating the 110th anniversary of the state. On this occasion, there is a public holiday. Various programs are being organized in the state on the occasion of the Bihar Diwas.

During the time of Chandragupta, the expansion of Bharatvarsha was up to present-day Afghanistan. At that time the capital of India was Pataliputra, whose territory lies in present-day Patna and its surrounding areas. During the British era, Bihar was placed under the Bengal Presidency. After a long battle, Bihar got recognition as a separate province.
Bihar is a special state located in the eastern part of India, which is a big center of India from a historical point of view. This state got its name 'Bihar' because people believe in Buddhism live here and also the Mahabodhi Temple is located in Bihar itself.
