ABOUT SIDDHARTH UNIVERSITY
Steeped in history and washed by the gurgling rivers flowing down the Himalayas, Siddharthnagar is the place, well known worldwide as the ‘playground’ of Prince Siddhartha-later known as Lord Buddha.
With an objective of furthering the sense of enlightenment, in a blend of traditionalism and modern education, the great socialist stalwart Shri Mulayam Singh Yadav started the process of developing the area since 1989. This was indeed the start of journey to the culmination of great dream of establishing this University. Subsequently, Shri Akhilesh Yadav, the Honble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, laid the foundation stone of the University on October 30, 2013 and the Government of Uttar Pradesh formally notified the Gazzett on June 17, 2015 regarding the opening of this Centre for Higher Learning.
The newly established Siddharth University, in fact, is a holy stream of historical tradition and legacy of the Philosophy and preaching of Lord Buddha and is aimed at enlightening and igniting the youth of this area with His great messages.
