They also have a Ph.D. programme and promote research. The architecture of the university is one of its highlights for visitors. The old building with the main dome surrounded by smaller domes, high arched design with classic brick construction and embellishments of Jaali work windows and balconies, create an old-world ambiance. Evening’s bask the entire building with warm lights when the rustic university becomes more of a visual treat than an educational center and if you love historic places, a walk there will be something you simply must not miss!
