One of the most ancient universities (427 - 1197 BCE) in the world to be rebuilt and opened by 2013.
Nalanda was one of the world's first residential universities, i.e., it had dormitories for students. It is also one of the most famous universities. In its heyday it accommodated over 10,000 students and 2,000 teachers. The university was considered an architectural masterpiece, and was marked by a lofty wall and one gate. Nalanda had eight separate compounds and ten temples, along with many other meditation halls and classrooms. On the grounds were lakes and parks. The library was located in a nine storied building where meticulous copies of texts were produced. The subjects taught at Nalanda University covered every field of learning, and it attracted pupils and scholars from Korea, Japan, China, Tibet, Indonesia, Persia and Turkey. During the period of Harsha (Indian Ruler) the monastery is reported to have owned 200 villages given as grants.

Thanks. It is exciting news indeed. It is amazing how big the library used to be for this university which was destroyed by the turk rulers back in time. Several countries are participating in its reconstruction. The university was well known to many countries even in europe back in time.

Small correction. I thought the ordering was wrong because BCE would have a "higher" numbered year first as it counts down to zero. The imprecision is due to the fact that it's not BCE (BC), it's CE (AD)...so from 427AD to 1197AD.
