PM Modi inaugurates new campus of Nalanda University

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the new campus of Nalanda University and also visited the ruins of the ancient Nalanda University. Before inaugurating the new campus, Modi visited the ‘Nalanda Mahavihara’, a UNESCO world heritage site located close to the varsity. The educational institute was established through the Nalanda University Act in 2010 and it started functioning in 2014. The ancient Nalanda University, which existed since the fifth century, attracted students from all over the world. It flourished for 800 years before being destroyed by invaders in the 12th century, according to experts.

It should be mentioned here that Nalanda Mahavihara was founded by Kumargupta I of the Gupta dynasty in the 5th century CE. It was patronized by various rulers including King Harshavardhana of Kannauj (7th century CE) and the Pala rulers (8th–12th century CE) as well as various scholars. The archaeological site of Nalanda Mahavihara is protected, maintained and managed by the ASI.
