A radiating centre once, of nationalism and patriotism, a vibrant centre of India’s freedom movement. The streets and surroundings are replete with history.

“ I believe that India is one, indissoluble, indivisible…National unity is built on the common home, the common interest and common love…the strength which spoke in the Vedas and Upanishads, in the making of religion and empires, in the learning of scholars, and the meditation of the saints, is born once more amongst, and its name today is nationality” – Sister Nivedita
