  • This is a great place to visit, if you are generally enthusiastic about ancient ruins and History of Mankind. This place is the world's first ever university according to some historians, while some say one of the very first. Here, Buddhists used to preach and students used to come from far off places.

It's an amazing ancient place, if you go up to the university, you'll see the whole area easily. This place was chosen wisely by the Buddhist monks. Having a university in the area means that the area was the heart of the city then.
