Gold Rates in Patna
Patna, in Bihar is a place that is heavily influenced by both the Northern and the Eastern cultures of India. As such, culinary experiences, varied festivals and numerous occasions come bundled with this trait. Patna is known to celebrate every major festival in India in a grand way. Gifting forms a major part of the gold buying, while certain festivities add to the already growing stock of gold with people in Patna. The gold rate in Patna is more or less the same as that around the globe, concerning the bullion rates, prices of coins, bars and jewellery.
Though not a primary mode of investing, gold jewellery and coins occupy a place in the gifting sector in Patna. With Diwali, Dussehra and Holi being predominantly the Eastern and Northern influence for gifting occasions, Teej and Chhath are the festivities central to Patna and are as important from a cultural and spending perspective. Artisans and jewellers from the North and East have made Patna a hub for themselves and thus one can find a hodge podge of variegated designs and work influence in the jewellery stores around Patna. That increases the choices of people wishing to invest in gold. Primarily, well-off families generally tend to do more of the gold investing in the region.
