When I visited last year it was under renovation so I couldn't reach the top. In the recent visit also it was under renovation, so in 8-9 months it was not completed.

Golghar is the iconic structure in Patna. You need to pay to enter here. The view from the top of this structure is amazing. You can view Ganga river from here. They conduct laser show in the evening.

This monument uses to be the grain storage area in British time. It has approx. 250 stairs for up and 250 stairs for down. The view is amazing from top and most exciting is that its free of cost till now.
