MSU Campus Library

MSU Campus Library

University library, Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda

The library was established on 1 May 1950. At the time of MSU’s establishment, a collection of 5,12,159 books belonging to two state libraries (Huzur Political Office and Secretariat Library) was handed over to the University Library.

There were several colleges in Baroda – Baroda College (for Arts), Science Institute, Commerce College, and Secondary Teacher’s Training College, etc. These colleges had libraries of their own that continued to remain as Faculty Libraries and were administered independently. Thus the University Library System was established on 5 January 1950 and housed in the central block of Old Residency Office Building.

the moon and a crow at Jantar Mantar

It consists of 13 architectural astronomy instruments. The site is one of five built by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur, from 1724 onwards, as he was given by Mughal emperor Muhammad Shah the task of revising the calendar and astronomical tables. There is a plaque fixed on one of the structures in the Jantar Mantar observatory in New Delhi that was placed there in 1910 mistakenly dating the construction of the complex to the year 1710. Later research, though, suggests 1724 as the actual year of construction more info

Nizamuddin Dargah

Nizamuddin Dargah

“Divine bounty does not discriminate between one individual and another. When the sun rises, it gives light and warmth to all people whether living in palaces or in huts. When it rained, the poor and rich alike are benefitted from it. Once, sheikh Mu’inuddin Chishti of Ajmer was asked to explain the highest form of religious devotion which endeared man to God. He said: “Develop river-like generosity, sun like bounty and earth like hospitality”. from Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia’s post

Every five to seven in the evening the dargah comes to life, especially every Thursday when this place has a fair like atmosphere. On special days like the biennial ‘Urs’ of Hazrat Nizamuddin and Eid people throng here from all over the world to absorb the Sufiana teachings he imparted.
