Nalanda University

Eight hundred years after the destruction of Nalanda, former President of India Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, while addressing the Bihar State Legislative Assembly, in March 2006 mooted the idea of reviving the university. Almost simultaneously, a proposal termed the “Nalanda Proposal” was forwarded to Government of India by Singapore. This proposal sought the re-establishment of a University like Nalanda which would once again be the focal point of Asia.

The establishment of this University was thus marked by a high degree of co-operation between the State of Bihar and the Government of India.  The University began its first academic session  in 2014 with 15 students.
