About the walk

Once known as the ‘Oxford of the East’, Muir Central College was established in Allahabad by Sir William Muir, the then Lieutenant Governor of the North-Western Provinces. The foundation stone of the college was laid on December 9, 1873, eventually merging with Allahabad University in 1922.

The restoration of the college, the fourth oldest in India, elicited great interest from the people of the city. Conservationists had a tough time cleaning the grime off the walls, redoing the tiles on the dome and clearing the floor. This is the perfect time to explore the college’s grandeur and remember its history. It is also worth hearing the views of its alumni, who are scholars from a host of academic fields.

This session will contrast the history of Muir Central College against its current reality. Come, let us explore both the tangible and intangible assets of this great institution.

This guided tour is free.
