Patna, Oct 26 (IANS) Bihar is all set to convert a few of its old palaces into heritage hotels to attract more tourists to the state.

'The government has identified two palaces, which will be turned into heritage hotels. More such palaces across the state will be converted later, said state Tourism Minister Nandkishore Yadav Thursday.

Influenced by the heritage hotels in Rajasthan, Bihar too plans to open up these projects to private investors. 'Like Rajasthan, we will also welcome private parties to come and invest in them,' added Yadav.

The two old palaces identified by the state tourism department so far are the Rizwan Palace and Sultan Palace, which are situated in the heart of the Bihar capital.

According to department officials, there are over a dozen such buildings in Bihar that could be made into heritage hotels.

Scores of tourists daily visit well-known Buddhist sites like Bodh Gaya, Rajgir, Vaishali and Nalanda.
