Nice Place to Visit
Jun 2019 • Couples
Nice place to visit. There is an entree fee of Rs 25 for Indians and Rs.300 for Foreigners/Non-Indians. As per Archeological Survey of India the excavation of s complete, however I have a feeling that if they will dig deep they may find more...

The place was a bit eerie and vast in area. I saw a number of stones, broken pillars and other ruins but could not identify which era these belonged to, as no local guides were available to accompany me.

Just like nalanda ruins, vikramshila university ruins also tells its glorious history from its remains. The whole area is well maintained and 8 km away from Kahalgaon.

Just like Nalanda University this ancient University Vikramashila is also one of the oldest in the world. 40-42 ka away from Bhagalpur City though Goverment should make that road a bit wider.. it's narrower at the moment causing traffic jam a bit.. best time to visit it is November to March.. a must visit for those who have interest in Past

University Ruins and Museum

Less spectacular than Nalanda and could use some good signage. We were the only western tourists but there were plenty from India. The museum housed some impressive statues but, again, more complete signage including dates would have been helpful.

Glory of Akhand Bharat
Jun 2017 • Family
Constructed in the time of pal dynasty to be precise Dharampal. It was opened cos scholarship at Nalanda was declining. With royal patronage Vikramshila started competing with Nalanda. It was famous for tantarik bhudism. Bkhteyar Khilji and his army destroyed it along with Nalanda University. Decline of Buddhism relegion started with the destruction of these University.
