PM Modi in Bihar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi watches ruins of Nalanda University | ABP News

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday visited the ancient ruins of the Nalanda University, which was established in the 5th century and became a renowned hub of education before it was destroyed by invaders in the 12th century. Modi was in Bihar to inaugurate a new campus of the university, which was reopened in 2014 as an endeavour supported by several countries.

The new university was established through the Nalanda University Act of 2010, which followed a decision taken during the second East Asia Summit held in the Philippines in 2007 to re-establish the university.

The inauguration on Wednesday was attended by External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar and ambassadors of 17 nations.
