Abstract: River front city can not exist without the river and river holds high importance for the city situated on its bank. Thus the river and the city are inseparable. It would be hard to imagine Paris without the Seine, a Leningrad without the Neva, Toronto without the lake front or Varanasi without the Ganga. All over the world and throughout ancient times, human settlements settles mostly on the bank of rivers. All civilization of the world in the knowledge have developed along the great rivers i.e. Mesopotamia along Tigris Euphrates, Egypt along Nile, Chinese along Hwang-Ho and Indus along Indus river is acting as transportation artery from the ancient times. Pepole owe their life and have learnt to live in society and developed different cultures and civilizations on the river front. But in modern town riverfront have been neglected. The result this neglect the town deprives of the great aesthetic potential of the river water. These are often secreened with the backsides of indusries, slums, dumping yards for all sorts of wastes and unplanned growth. The river front in Patna has remained a neglected part of the town, so its potential is yet to be realised and harnessed.
