India officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by geographical area, the second most populous country, and the most populous liberal democracy in the world. India is a union of twenty-eight states and seven federally-governed union territories. New Delhi is the capital of India.
Azamgarh is a town in the Uttar Pradesh state in India. The town also serves as the headquarters of Azamgarh district. A district is similar to a county in the United States. Like most towns in northern parts of India, Azamgarh is situated on the banks of a river in this case on the Tons River. Azamgarh was founded around 1665, by a powerful landlord named Azam Khan.
Azamgarh became a center of learning with the founding of Shibli National College, by the Muslim theoligan Shibli Nomani. Around 1913, Mr. Nomani, inspired by the works of Sir Syed Ahmed Khan of Aligarh Muslim University, established a college drawing scholars from all parts of Uttar Pradesh and northern India. Azamgarh is well connected to other parts of the state, and the recent launch of direct train connections with Bombay and Delhi has made this town more accessible.
Azamgarh is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in India worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place leaves a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justifies the proud cultural tradition of India.
