Design Inspiration

Darbhanga, one of India’s oldest cities, boasts a rich cultural heritage with musical, folk art, and literary traditions in Sanskrit, Maithili, and Urdu passed down through generations. Recognized as the “Cultural Capital of Bihar” and the “Heart of Mithilaanchal,” Darbhanga’s proposed station building draws inspiration from the city’s forts and palaces. The architectural theme seamlessly blends traditional facets with modern elements and emphasizes the use of green and sustainable building materials.
