Muzaffarpur Travel

MuzaffarpurSituated near the historical Vaishali, the city of Muzaffarpur is one of the major towns of north Bihar. Muzaffarpur the Lychee City, a short distance from popular tourist spots like Hajipur, Sonepur and Vaishali is located just south of the Burhi Gandak River. The city was founded by Muzaffar Khan in the 18th century and hence the name.
