Bharatpura :-  village in the Paliganj sub-division is a sleepy hamlet, about 45 km away from Patna. It houses G N Public Library that possesses more than 5,000 rare manuscripts in Sanskrit, Arabic and Persian. Bharatpura is named after its ruler Raja Bharat Singh who was the founder of Bharatpura Gadh. His descendants, came to be known as the Dhari Family. Some of them also migrated to nearby places like Dharhara. In the years to come they ruled the area during the Mughal period and later become the Zamindars in the British period. Post independence in 1947 the Zagir and Zamindari was seized by the government and large part of the family got settled in Patna.

Dozens of coins, including the gold-mix coins belonging to the mughal period,were recently discovered here. They, in effect, prove beyond doubt that the whole region had a vibrant medieval culture.

In the last six years, 1,314 such coins have been recovered from this site alone. This region needs a thorough exploration in order to ascertain the archaeological importance of this site, feel experts. Secretary of the Gopal Narain Public Library, Dhrupad N Singh said that on July 17, when some labourers were digging the field located adjacent to the boundary wall of the library on the southern corner, they suddenly found a copper pot containing 40 coins of the medieval period. While the copper coins belong to the slave and tughlaq dynasties, the gold-mix coins belong to periods of Babur and Akbar. Sensing the historical significance of these coins, singh gave them to director of the K P jayaswal research institute (kpjri) Bijay Kumar Chaudhary for examining them so as to ascertain their importance. following a preliminary examination, chaudhary said that the coins were of great archaeological importance. "some of them are rare ones," he added.

The surroundings of this library are dotted with mounds of archaeological importance. This library is also located on one of them. Away back in 1995, the then director, state archaeology, Prakash Charan Prasad had discovered at least 100 punch-marked coins on the library premises. Again, in 1996, hundreds of copper and silver coins were discovered. The former assistant director of state archives, S A Kazmi had examined these coins, which belonged to the sher shah and aurangzeb periods. At least 200 coins were discovered from this site about a year-and-a-half ago. The then district magistrate of patna had got them examined by some experts in order to ascertain their date and importance.

To preserve the rich cultural heritage of bharatpura village, the directorate had put a complete ban on digging in and around the bharatpura library campus away back in 1995. District and police officials had also been informed about it, but no follow-up action has been taken so far. Singh pointed out that several rare coins have been missing. several complaints have been made by the villagers regarding the theft of coins. Unless the centre takes over this library, the condition of this library is unlikely to improve.

                                                                                                                *** This library of the small village of Bihar has such precious historical things that will not get anywhere else. ***

Though you may have visited many museums and libraries abroad and abroad, but there is a library less museum in Bharatpura village, about 30 km from Patna, Bihar, where you will find a historical treasure which is available in any other Library of India Not in. Let us take a tour of this unique and unique Gopal Narayan Public Library in small village today.

Gopal Narayan Public Library is special in many ways.

Gopal Narayan Public Library is situated on a high mound in Bharatpura and this village is a village which has a historical village with historical heritage and treasures on the broken road from Patna to Paliganj. During the reign of Akbar, King Kanchan Singh came here from Maharashtra. His son, King Bharat Singh, built a fort here. Bharatpura later named Bharatpura after the name of Bharat Singh. Gopal Narayan Singh, one of his descendants, established this library on December 12, 1912. It was inaugurated by the then District Magistrate WDR Prentiss. Initially, Gopal Narayan collected collections of various antique and special items related to his ancestors in that library. After that he gradually filled his library less museum with historical treasures. It is said that excavation from nearby Bharatpura village has received many historical significance which has been kept in the library.

                                                                                                                                                                   *** Only the sun's statue can be seen here ***

In this library, there are about 8000 manuscripts, 400 ancient idols, 1000 historical paintings, more than 4000 ancient coins, and many antique and historical objects of importance. Dhrupad Narayan Singh, grandson of Gopal Narayan, current secretary of the library, points out that here is a special idol in the erotic currency of the 5th century Shiva and Parvati, which is nowhere in the country and abroad. There are 3 special sculptures of Sun in the 8th and 9th centuries. According to the Indian Archeology Department, till now no such statue of Sun in the world has been found anywhere. This idol was found in excavation in the excavation in 2012 near Tardhi mode. Apart from this, 8 Kg of Ashta Dhat of Nandi is also special. There is also an idol of Lord Buddha which is just 8 inches but weighing 10 kilograms, which is unique in itself. This idol is said to be a secret period. Apart from this, there are special sculptures of many other periods, including the Maurya dynasty.

                                                                                                                                                               *** The only copies of the illustrated shahnamas ***

The Gopal Narayan library less museum is the only library in the world where the eclipse copy of the illustrative Shahnameh is present. This shahanama can go through the paintings made by Iran's civilization, culture sapphire and gold. Apart from this, there are many important historical significance books and paintings, such as the Nizami, pictorial Sikandarama, Muthal-ul-Hind composed by Salamat Ali, and the 11th century junk hafiz. On the same place, there may also be a pating monk of Baswan of Akbar's nine gems. While the Mahabharata written in the Brahmchi script on the leaves of the wire is also one of the special archeology here. Dhrupad Narayan says that according to the figures we have here, it is of 780 AD.

                                                                                                                                                   *** Shahjahan's stick made of elephant's teeth is also special ***

Many more antique objects in this library will surely draw your attention in a small village. There are many chirag-e-guls of Babur's time which were used to spread the light at that time. At the same time, Shahjahan's stick made from elephant teeth is also beautiful in this museum. Apart from this, there are punctuation coins, Akbar's day-e-ilahi coins, golden coins of Buddha's time, a wire bicycle, special timepiece, gold leaf petting on yellow leaf, Mughal petting, and many others along with the statue of Yakshini Precious things are about to attract people's attention. Lion explains that there is a picture of a tribal woman made of metals which is in her hand book. This picture shows that at that time women were also very interested in education. Women empowerment was important at that time too.

                                                                                                                                              *** Big celebrities consider the importance of the library here ***

Smrudra Narayan said that the library less museum has been established in Pune just a few days back but the important and historical treasures available here are not in any other library less museums. In view of its importance Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has also come here many times and has said that he has given a bigger picture. The officials, writers, artists and journalists of the Archeology Department of other states and the Center have also accepted the importance of this library. The committee is set up for its operation. Its chairman is the district collector. But, despite all this, the government here has failed to get the government a bigger identity. Due to administrative slowdown, security arrangements here are also inadequate. However, a new building is being constructed for the library. It is expected that in the coming time this will be seen in a grand form.
