Guide To India – Sasaram (City Of Sher Shah Suri)
Sometimes there are places that are so beautiful that their beauty turns into the very essence of the state or the nation. Take places like Udaipur, Manali as example. These places have been attracting tourists since the very beginning.
Unfortunately, sometimes there are places that fail to seize the spotlight. They stay in the shadow for one reason or another.
Today we will talk about, yeah you must have guessed it already, Narnia.

Places of attraction
I can go on with this but I am going to talk only about the biggest attraction – Tomb of Sher Shah Suri.
It was built back in the 16th century.
The structure is built from stones and is located in the middle of a lake. The beauty will mesmerise you in every possible way.
The tomb is one of the most visited tourist attractions of the country. The architectural design of the tomb is a close competitor to the tomb of Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal. Both of them are known for their astounding appeal at night.
The chief source of economy is build from agriculture.
The production of stone chips and for quarrying industry is known for its fine quality.
It is one of the 40 Lok Sabha (parliamentary) constituencies in Bihar state in eastern India.
The climate is little tricky here.
Why? I am glad you asked, even if you didn’t.
The summers are too hot and the winters are too cold.
It is one of the hottest cities of Bihar.
