Why Varanasi is a Perfect Place for Education?
From centuries, Varanasi, which is also known as “Sarva Vidya Ki Rajdhani” it means the
capital of knowledge, is reputed as a great centre of education and learning. Since ancient
times, people across the world have been coming to Varanasi to learn philosophy, Sanskrit,
astrology, modern sciences, and social science. The first educational institution was
established way back in the year 1791 when a Sanskrit college was started to train the
servants of the East India Company. Then Annie Besant established the Central Hindu School
in the last quarter of the 19th century intending to impart modern and traditional education.
The Central Hindu School is now we know as the prestigious Banaras Hindu University, at
present it holds a position among the top universities across the world .
