Maner is a small town located 25 km (16 miles) west of Patna on NH 30, in Bihar. Maner Sharif shelters two very popular Muslim tombs: of Sufi saint Makhdoom Yahya Maneri, known as the Bari Dargah (the great shrine), and that of Makhdum Shah Daulat, popularly called Chhoti Dargah (the small shrine).

There is a big dome on the top whose ceiling is full of different markings depicted from the Quran. In the mediaeval time, Maner Sharif used to be the principal site of learning and knowledge in the region.
