One of the ancient Academies of the world, like Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard et cetera. These restored old buildings in the grounds of the present University are a real treat.
Don't forget to buy a writing set!

Oh ! what a beautiful location.A mountain in the background covered by greenery,shade of dense trees.ponds of water with lotuses and other aquatic plants . no artificiality in the landscape.

And great debates on philosophy thousand year back. Well preserved and developed over centuries. Continuity in the form of a modern university i.e.Hunan university. Is there any place in the world with such long history ! And continuing into modern period-gn nagaraj

Part of Hunan University. It is interesting to see how the students studied (sitting on the floor, with small/low wooden tables), their classrooms, teachers' sleeping quarters, lecture room, etc. You'll be interested if you are a teacher or teacher at heart.

Yuelu Academy is a great collection of buildings which were begun in 972AD. Lots of photo opportunities and lots of history.
