Taxila University

Taxila or Takshashila University as some scholars called it, lies in modern day Pakistan but was an important centre of higher learning in Ancient India in 5th century BC.

Taxila University grew popular during the reign of Chandragupta Maurya when Chankya wrote a series of books called Artha Shastra. Artha Shastra was inspired as a guiding principle of the Kind. Taxila University imparted knowledge around religion, agriculture. Vedas, commerce, politics, music and dance, archery, medicine etc..


Panini was another scholar of famous acclaim hailing from this University with his work Ashtadhyayi focussed on language & grammar.

Other great scholars of this age hailing from Takshashila are Charaka who defined Indian Ayurvedic medicine with his treatise Charaka Samhita.

The author of Panchatatra, Vishnu Sharma hailed from this university. Panchatantra was a collection of short stories related to animals and is a huge favorite even today.

Note: Taxila University is in current day Pakistan
