Takshashila

Learning Centers

Takshashila

Takshashila – now in Pakistan, became a noted center of learning to have included the religious teachings of Hinduism, several centuries BCE. It continued to attract students from around the world until it fell into ruins in the fifth century.

At its peak, Takshashila exerted a sort of "intellectual suzerainty" over other centers of learning in India with its primary concern towards uplifting higher education.
