Localted in Rajgir near the site of its ancient predecssor, Nalanda University is an avant-grade international University supported by 17 partner countries of East Asia Summit. It is designated by the Government of India as an 'Institution of National Importance' Under the Ministry of External Affairs.
“From time immemorial India opened up novel paths of learning. Wherever Buddha traversed, seeds of knowledge sprouted and flourished. For centuries Nalanda was a beacon of learning which attracted scholars from all over Asia and became a symbol of intra-Asia wisdom and interaction. It is now poised to embark on a similar journey on an expanded scale with Asia-Pacific and Indian Ocean countries joining in. If the world's future lies in achieving a multi-polar system, it is necessary that an institution such as Nalanda charts the course of new knowledge system for the 21st century”
