Easily reachable from other Indian cities, Bihar Sharif is located in the district of Nalanda, in the Indian state of Bihar. The word Bihar Sharif is also written as Biharsharif. It is also commonly known as Bihar. On the embankments of the Panchanan River, in the Hiranya Prabhat Parvat, the town of Bihar Sharif is located.

The land has been turned very productive and fertile due to the alluvial soil, which has been accumulated due to the presence of numerous rivers namely Dhoba, Panchanan and Goithva. The greater part of the economy of the place has been constituted by the agricultural and farming activities.

The presence of many a number of Muslim tombs have given the name Bihar Sharif. The tombs reflect the past significance of the location, which served as a place for Muslim pilgrims. The capital of the Pala Dynasty was in this town, during the 10th century. Due to this fact, one can observe many a number of archaic architectures belonging to that time phase, which includes a Gupta pillar dating back to the 5th century and also other numerous mosques and tombs, belonging to Muslim religion.

The relics of the Odantapuri University are present in the area located close to the town. It was a significant seat for Buddhist learning at one point of time. During the 13h century, Bakhtiyar Khilji, who was the Mughal Emperor’s local army chief, burnt this university.
The months between October and May are the best time to pay a visit to this place.
