Digital Rare Book:
Universities in Ancient India
Published by Maharaja Sayaji Rao University, Baroda -1923
This brochure contains a brief account of the famous universities in Ancient India. The term 'university' as used here simply means a centre where higher education was imparted to aspiring students. It does not connote all the different features possessed by the universities in the East and the West to-day. There were a number of important features in these universities, which do not find a parallel in our modern institutions going under the name. The following brief account of these universities will enable the reader to have some idea of education imparted in these institutions during the long period of about 2,000 years beginning with the 10th century B.C. and ending with the I2th century A.D. It is hoped that a perusal of this booklet will enable him to compare our present institutions with those of ancient India and realise that the centres of higher learning in ancient India were unique in their organization and scholarship during those distant times when elsewhere in the world very few had thought of organised, education at the university level.
