  • to the ancient buddhists, nalanda was a name that rang far and wide, a place so revered that it attracted pilgrims, scholars, and students from all over the known civilizations of asia.

built in the 5th century, nalanda was a mahavihara (great monastery) and a pre-eminent buddhist centre of learning, widely regarded as one of ancient india's greatest universities and among the oldest in the world. it was visited by famous pilgrim monks xuanzang and yijing of tang china, whose writings gave detailed accounts of the mahavihara in its heyday. it was said that around 1,500 teachers and 10,000 students taught and studied in nalanda, and its library contained hundreds of thousands of manuscripts and texts.

while largely in ruins today, nalanda existed for almost 800 years where it saw the mahavihara tumbled from its glory days with thousands of students and monks to its fateful demise in the 13th century. the resurgence of hinduism in the latter centuries and the eventual muslim invasion of india sealed the fate of the once great monastery. under the command of afghan-turkic general muhammad bin bakhtiyar khalji, his forces laid siege and caused much destruction across the northern plains of india, with nalanda and its contemporary mahaviharas being destroyed within the same period.

a unesco world heritage site, nalanda's ancient prestige and immense legacy were revived in the form of an international university that was established in 2014 in nearby rajgir with the funding of several countries.
