Patna Meteorological Observatory

Patna Meteorological Observatory is one of the earliest observatories set up by the then British Core of Engineers in 1867. It was earlier managed by the Army Medical Corp as part of their initiative to study the impact of weather on epidemics. It came under the management of the Indian Meteorological Department after its establishment in 1875. It was recently conferred with the status of ‘centennial observing station’ by World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) in recognition to its long-term meteorological observation for more than 100 years.
