Barauni is an industrial city in the Begusarai district of Bihar, India, located on the banks of the Ganges. Barauni, located on the northern banks of the Ganga, is home to an oil refinery, a thermal power station, and other enterprises developed by some of India's industrial behemoths.

Places to visit

  • Kanwar Lake Bird Sanctuary : This bird sanctuary, which is home to migratory birds, has direct access to Kanwar Lake, Asia's largest freshwater lake. During the hard winters, local birds and other rare bird species migrate here. Kanwar Lake is a natural oxbow. It was produced by the diversion of one of the Ganga's major tributaries, the meandering River Gandak. Other birds spotted here are the Oriental White Vulture, Kestrel, Cranes, Spotted Eagle, Long-billed Vulture, and more. Chemicals and pollution have recently degraded the water and the lake's surrounds. Poachers, trappers, and commercial property deals have all posed a threat to the survival of these species.
