Nalanda was a religious center of learning from the fifth century AD to 1197 AD. At its peak, the university attracted scholars and students from as far away as Tibet, China, Greece, and Persia.Nalanda was ransacked and destroyed by an army under Bakhtiyar Khilji in 1193.

A new university is coming up there and A P J Abdul Kalam is accepted the offer for guidance.  Enjoy some of the pictures, I have taken at my last trip.  In 2006, Singapore, China, India, Japan, and other nations, announced a proposed plan to restore and revive the ancient site as Nalanda International University.
