about banaras hindu university

One of the largest residential universities in the world, Banaras Hindu University is an internationally reputed university, situated in the Lanka area of the city. Founded by Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya in 1916, this university complex is a city in itself with excellent facilities and architecture, which creates the atmosphere of an old township. The university is associated with many nation builders and great freedom fighters, contributing enormously to the development of the country through a large number of celebrated artists, scientists and scholars. 

Covering an area of 1350 acres, the university was built in Varanasi because of its centuries-old tradition of learning, wisdom and spirituality. BHU comprises of 3 Institutes, 4 Interdisciplinary Centers, 14 faculties, 124 departments and 3 Constituent Schools. A total of more than 20,000 students study here and that too form 34 different nations like United States, Asia, Middle East, Europe and Africa. The main campus has around 60 hostels for students, a central library, Malviya Bhavan, a multi-specialty hospital, a museum (Bharat Kala Bhavan), sports facilities, and a few entertainment venues. With the campus, there is a spectacular temple called the New Vishwanath Temple or  'VT',  which is known for its architectural brilliance. 

Every year on Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya's birthday (25 December) there is a flower show and the whole university is decorated with earthen lamps--a truly spectacular sight to behold.
