        Patna’s iconic GPO turns 100 years

                                     

PATNA: The city's iconic general post office (GPO), a marvelous example of British architecture, will turn 100 on Saturday.

It was in 1915 that Viceroy Lord Charles Hardinge laid the stone of the building, the construction of which was ordered by the then ruling East India Company. Designed by English architect Joseph P Munnings, the building saw the GPO function from July 1, 1917 for Bihar and Orissa province after its separation from Bengal Presidency in April 1912.
